If you’ve followed Nissan news at all over the past year you’ve probably heard about their all-new crossover, the 2018 Nissan Kicks! The Nissan Kicks is Nissan’s first brand-new nameplate in eight years, but it replaces the Nissan Juke as the subcompact crossover in Nissan’s lineup. So, what’s the difference between the Nissan Kicks and Nissan Juke? (more…)
2017 Nissan Juke Configurations and Pricing
The 2017 Nissan Juke isn’t just a crossover—it’s a Sport Cross. With signature headlights, a fiercely sculpted hood, and aggressive muscular lines—the Juke is anything but ordinary. But which 2017 Juke trim level best fits your needs? We’ve put together a quick overview of the 2017 Nissan Juke configurations and pricing to help you decide.
Saving fuel in Montgomery is easy with the Nissan Juke. This crossover already gets 28 mpg in the city and 34 on the highway, giving you a head start. These numbers mean that even if you occasionally engage in fuel-wasting behaviors, you won’t have to stop at the gas station to frequently. If, on the other hand, you pair fuel-saving strategies with the impressive EPA ratings of the Juke, you will find your savings adding up quickly.
Limit Your Driving
The easiest way to conserve fuel with your Juke is to drive it less frequently. While this may not always be a possibility, there are some ways you drive less without noticing a sacrifice to your lifestyle. Try carpooling with a friend on the way to work or combine multiple errands into a single trip. Not only will you use less gas because you travel a shorter distance, but your engine will be working at peak efficiency for these trips. That is because your engine uses more fuel during the first several miles if it hasn’t been in use for a few hours.
Anytime you are idling, you are wasting gas in your Nissan Juke. The only exception to this is when it is extremely hot or cold outside and you need to take advantage of the climate control system. Otherwise, you are wasting fuel without going anywhere. To reduce time spent idling, try to avoid traffic jams by picking a different route. Also, consider turning off your Juke if you are waiting for someone and know he or she will be late.
Remove Extra Weight
Any extra weight in or on your Juke will lower its fuel efficiency since the engine has to work harder. This means that you shouldn’t leave that empty roof carrier on top of your Juke; not only will it add weight, but it will create wind resistance. You should also take out the random supplies, like sports equipment, you leave in your car all week long. Instead, only carry things around on the days you will need them. Store them in a convenient place, such as right next to your crossover in your garage, so you won’t forget these items.
To further conserve fuel in your Nissan Juke, you should also make sure you keep up with regularly scheduled maintenance.
