2004 xterra automatic 4wheel drive bought used and supposedly totally checked out by dealer, from my first tank(18.45gal) i got 240 miles. from my 3rd and current tank i'm getting 180 miles, same road conditions. 2nd tank was horrible, but was in 4wheel application in deep snow. what is up if they reconditioned the vehicle, and why is it getting worse?

Mines the same. I have a 2006 auto 4wd s model. I was doing an average of 240 or so. The more 4wd use the lower it went. Now Im careful driving and not 4wheeling much(it says in the manual 4wd eats gas) and its getting higher. Last i checked, I got 275 miles. Hey, it could be worse.. jeeps get even lower milege.
