Hey, i've noticed my car's gas consumption has increased by a LOT.

Used to be around 7-9 L/100km now its sitting around 10-13 L/100km for the past 4-5 month. Its pretty cold out (canada), but does that justify a 30-40% increase in gas consumption?

Car's a 2002 SE-R with 120k (kms) on it. No major issues

Does anyone know of any common issues with this model that increase fuel consumption as the car gets older?

normally that's related to bad o2 sensors. even if you're not throwing a code, one (or 2) of them could still be bad

I would say your reported consumption variation is normal given the climate and temp changes in Canada.

As an example here is a link to some of my posts on consumption:

The graph I posted is for my X-trail ... same engine as yours.
