Take your foot of the gas. Fast starts ie speeding away from stops and starts burns more fuel.
Make sure your air filter is clean to allow proper fuel air mix ratio. If dirty replace it.
Lighten your load.Don't carry around a lot of dead weight in your truck. The heavier the load the more gas used.
Use a 91 or higher octane gas, this gas will burn hotter and give you more power thus again needing to step on the throttle less to create momentum
Try to maintain speed limit. speeding cost more.

    Nissan Pathys really are not that fuel economic 16/17 per gallon average.

    Try to slow down. Do the speed limit, This helps save fuel.

    Starts and stops cost money time your stops so as not to have to step on the gas to get back up to speed.

    Check your air filter, a dirty clogged filter will result in poor fuel burning. Proper air flow is important replace if dirty.

    Use a 91 or higher octane fuel. Higher octane will give you more power as it burns hotter and this will allow you not to have to step on the throttle as hard to create momentum to get up to speed.

faulty fuel distribution leads to the fuel injector pump assembly , I would guess ? something is bust inside it ,,,,,? loss of power and balck smoke is from poor burn . Check fuel wet spark plugs ?
This is a logical guess

Why nissan murano burn alot of fuel

Hello , when you mean it's burning a lot of fuel I'm assuming you bought this car new and it consumes more fuel now then before . Question is hen did u last tuned it up , when I mean tuned up , I mean spark plugs fuel filter , and mainly Oxygen sensors . Also you have to make sure that your tires are in even correct pressure and you car has good brakes and drives smooth on short or long roads . A smooth car could save a lot of fuel ( a free floating vehicle down the road with out having to push the gas hard to move it ,). You may also need to watch your driving habit , if you a speeder then there goes your problem you know what I mean , every after stop sign you want to fly ,
note:- this is just an advise , use it only to head the right detection , good luck To you I hope my answers help you .

I have Service engine light on for my nissan 2001 maxima. Dealer ran the diagnostics and said Bad o2 Sensor. Today , the Service engine light is gone.. Do I need to replace the part anyway or wait for the...

if it comes back, yes you will need. without pre o2 sensor your car wont idle, it will use lots of fuel and you will face drivability problems if it is post o2 sensor, it is there to check if catalytic converter is ok or not(it won caue drivability problems but may consume little more fuel to run rich and to save catalytic converter). if sensor is broken you need to replace it. if you have error for post o2 sensor but it is ok, this means your catalytic converter is going bad.

I have 2001 nissan maxima that loses power while driving

This means a lot of issues can be the result of poor loss and is a poor performance on the engine or drive. Sometimes a poor fuel tuning or an improper timing can cause this issue. Also a faulty fuel filter, fuel pressure at higher RPM , fault with auto advance which can be a vacuum loss or a friction on the brakes.
Also check for good spark, check the firing for good burnt indication of fuel and finally check exhaust clogging and the catalytic convertor.
