Road trips you can take with one tank of gas


When you think of the perfect road trip car do you picture a sporty roadster? A cramped fuel-saver? Maybe you should take a look at McLarty Nissan’s 2017 Nissan Altima inventory. The 2017 Nissan Altima is ahead of the sedan game, featuring a beautifully designed exterior, roomy interior cabin, impressive fuel economy (best-in-class 39 highway miles per gallon) and safety features like Predictive Forward Collision warning - all of those features practically spell “Road Trip.”

Not on board yet? Here’s some math: 39 highway miles per gallon with an 18 gallon fuel tank? That’s approximately 700 miles of traveling on just one tank of gas. Where can you go with 700 miles? Here are a few suggestions:

1. Anywhere in Arkansas

From the southwest corner of Arkansas to the northeast corner of Arkansas is only about 325 miles and from the northwest corner to the southeast corner is only about 375 miles. That means you could drive from one to the other twice on one tank of gas in the Altima. Not sure what to do around Arkansas? Check out this road trip guide, or just make the Altima your go-to ride for all of those trips from Little Rock to Fayetteville to watch the Razorbacks play.

2. Drive to NoLa for a fun weekend

You can’t quite make it from Little Rock to New Orleans and back with one tank of gas, but you’ll just need to top off in NoLa before you head back and you’ll be able to stay on the road for the entire 430 mile trip with no interruptions in the Altima (that is, if everyone in your car can handle 7 hours with no bathroom breaks.)

3. Trip it up to Chicago

You read that right - one tank of gas in the 2017 Nissan Altima can take you all the way to Chicago. That’s a 650 mile trip, but once you’re there, you can eat plenty of quality pizza, take a selfie with Cloud Gate (aka “the bean”), and see the sights before you need to fill up on gas and head back.

With the 2017 Nissan Altima, you and your family (or road-tripping friends!) never have to compromise fun for functionality. The practical features also come with a side of entertainment tech like a 4.3 inch LCD screen, bluetooth phone connectivity and steering wheel mounted audio controls. Still on the fence?
