  2. Fuel Economy Calc Broken

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    I have been driving for about a month (just over 3000km) and fuel economy stabilized to 8.8L/100KM (26.7mpg) based on my driving but for the last few days it had been randomly rising and had reached 12.3L/100KM (19.1mpg) but I believe it's just software glitch as my fuel used is about the same...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hi all. I just bought a Mazda 3 hatchback 2018. I am thrilled, the first two or three rides have been quite a joy. When I filled the car with petrol, the range-meter was pointing at 611 Km (380 miles). I 've made a trip from my house to my parents home, 173 Km ((107 miles) distance, (highway...
  4. Custom "Economy" and "Economy+" A/C Setting?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    In my quest for increased fuel economy, I've come up with an idea that I wanted to run by you guys... "Economy" and "Economy+" settings for your air conditioner: - Economy mode would only operate the compressor when the throttle input is at 0% for 5 seconds, regardless of whether or not you...
  5. 2012 Mazda 3 Skyactiv fuel economy

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Hi everyone, I hope I'm not posting something that exists already. I am the owner of a 2012 Mazda 3 Skyactiv, hatchback. When I acquired the vehicle in February 2014, it was used of course, only had about 40,000.00KM on it. During the first year, perhaps 2, the fuel economy was terrific. I...
  6. Fuel Economy Monitor Accuracy

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion

  8. Fuel Economy App

    Electronics / Stereo Equipment
    Has anyone figured out how to automatically reset the fuel economy app? I have ticked the setting to say that it should sync with Trip A, but resetting Trip A doesn't seem to make a difference to the app. I was expecting more bars to appear in the bottom chart on the page with the charts (can't...

    Hi Is there an app you can install on the MZD to switch the ECU between performance and economy driving? Chris
  10. Gas Tank Recall - killed my fuel economy

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I just got my Mazda3 hatchback in October :) I love the car. I commute pretty far every day usually with the husband, so it's a great little car for that. Unfortunately I'm feeling a bit disappointed right now - I was issued the gas tank and canister recall on my first oil change. They ended...

    I'm still confused about something regarding the trip meter A and B and how it relates to fuel economy screen. Hopefully, you guys can clear a few questions for me :) The Infotainment fuel economy monitor screen is split into 3 sections: The third section represents the exact same value as...
  14. 2015 fuel economy

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    So I was looking at the 2015 models and I noticed that the fuel economy ratings are quite different for the 2015 models compared to the 2014. The 2014 states Fuel economy city/highway (L/100 km)† 7.0/4.9 (6MT)† 6.8/4.9 (6AT)† While the 2015 states Fuel economy city/highway (L/100 km)†...
  15. Shortcut for fuel economy screen?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I like to closely monitor my fuel economy, but every time I start the car, I have to go to the main infotainment screen en click away in some sub-menus. Isn't there a shortcut to go directly to the fuel economy screen to view the bar graphs? Maybe a voice-command?
  16. 2012 & 2013 Mazda 3 Skyactiv fuel economy

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Thought it would be interesting to have a thread dedicated solely to fuel economy numbers (MPG) just for the Mazda 3 2012 & 2013 Skyactiv engines. Please post what you drive (which year, sedan or hatchback, manual or automatic transmission, where you live, what you have been getting for MPGs...
  17. Fuel Economy

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    First fill up in my 2010 3 iTouring yielded 24.5mpg. Lot of city with the A/C on but some highway too. Doesn't this seem very low?
  18. Post Your Fuel Economy Monitor High Scores!

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Howdy all, just bought a 2014 iGT / Manual, and am pleased so far with the fuel economy. I have a nearly ideal commute - 50 minutes through farm land with not much traffic - just a few lights, stop signs, and lots of hills. Anyway, here's my "high score" so far after about 2 weeks: 45MPG...
  19. Bad Fuel Economy

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    On the Mazda website, the GX should get 6.7 L/100 km city. I only do city driving, and I'm getting 11.1 L/100 km. Granted, I only have 500 km on the car, and the winter has been rough where I live. Hoping this gets better as I continue breaking in the engine and as the weather gets better.
