New tow vehicle


Recommended Posts

I currently pull my 16' northwoods troller around with a 90 chev scottsdale. I get 9 mpg no matter what with or without the boat attached. I am seriously considering a 06 Nissan Titan. Does anybody have any info on gas mileage. The dealer says 14city 19hwy. Just thought maybe somebody might have more concrete info. Thanks for any advice.

Expect city mileage in the 15mpg range. hwy with trailer will be around 12-15 depending on your speed.

Unloaded hwy will vary depending on your speed, but they are very good on the hwy. You will see 16+. Some guys who do lots of flatland driving will hit 20mpg if they keep the rpms down (lighter on the gas pedal).

THey are really nice trucks in general and I wish I had one.

i don't think any full size gets that good of mpg. i would subtract 2-3 mpg off the sticker just because you will not be driving 55 mph everywhere with no wind and that is what the manufacturer bases it on. and a little less for towing.

maybe someone that owns a titan can let us know what they get.

HGS 24- I own a 2005 Titan and I love it. They are correct depending on how you are driving 15-20mpg is about right. I have an 8x16 but have only towed it out to the lake. But it pulled it without hesitation. My buddy owns a Nissan dealership in the Metro and I can put you in touch with him if your interested. Good deals!

Not that I didn't already say what you can expect. You can get that great of mileage and its not that hard to obey the speed limit.

I'm not sure about the premium fuel but I can't imagine why. The V8 makes it power on 87octane. I suppose you could get a programmer for more power and/or better mileage and use premium fuel.

Seriously go drive one if you haven't, you;ll love it.

I have done everything but drive the Titan, I want to wait until mar or april if I drive it i might cave. It doesn't take much to step up from where I'm at currently. The wife has an altima and i change the oil and brakes and thats it. The titan runs on e85 which is a plus i think. A little worried about the first go round of nissan building a full size truck

The reason why I brought up the fuel requirement was whe I looked at them at the auto show the first year they came out it said right on the window sticker 91 octane fuel preffered or requried, but I can't remember which it was. If you use 87 in an engine that wants 91 you might not get the mileage you desire. May not notice the power in the "seat of the pants" but your wallet may notice the mileage.

HGS 24, welcome to Fishing Minnesota!

I wouldn't doubt the fuel mileage. I currently get 17 on the freeway and 14 in the city in the winter with my 06 Tundra. Warmer weather will easily bump me up to the estimated 15city 19 freeway.

I've never been a big fan of Nissan but I would drive a Titan before a Dodge or Chevy. Just think about that new car smell, Smooth ride, High tech horsepower, great interior, excellent sound system, (and the best part) how good it will look in your driveway!!

I think this is the first model year for the Titan. I'm still a little old school as far as first model years go. Although you rarely see the problems on the imports. Besides Nissan has had many years of dependable/reliable cars and trucks I don't think the Titan will be any different!

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?
