    2019+ Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    Does anyone know how big the gas tank is? I’m able to drive 400km on half a tank which seems amazing.
  2. gas tank, filling

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I am new to the mazda 3. When I fill the tank it cuts off the I wait a bit and can add another gallon. this is just by waiting then pulling that handle back all the way again. Do others see this behavior?
  3. Smelling gas

    Hello everyone. I've got a 2012 Mazda 3 i Grand Touring (Skyactiv) hatch w/ about 122k miles.

    Hi all, This is my first post in the forum. I recently purchased my first car, A 2007 Mazda3 hatchback Automatic.

  7. Mazda 3 gas mileage what are you getting

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I'm about to purchase my Mazda 3GT in about a week. When I was at the dealer we were looking at the hatchback and he said they got 40 miles to the gallon which I thought was only the 2.0 engine not the 2.5L. I was wondering what you guys are getting with either the Sedan or the hatchback...
  8. Bad Gas Mileage on Highway 2008 Mazda 3 Hatchback

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    Hi, my boyfriend and I recently purchased a 2008 Mazda 3 hatchback. It has a 2.3 liter engine. Its gas tank is 14.5 gallons and it is supposed to get 22 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway. The gas mileage seems to be okay in the city but on the highway it seems to go through more gas than...
  9. Change gas tank volume?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    The older Mazda3's, like my 2012, had a 14.5 gallon gas tank volume. The newer models are 13.2 gallons. That is an unfortunate drop in volume. I drive a lot and don't like going to the gas station 3-4 times a month. Has anyone ever changed out their gas tank volume for a bigger volume?
  10. Topping off gas tank, harmful or harmless?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I think this is an interesting topic to discuss, as car technology has progressed in the last couple of years. So what do you guys think, is topping off gas tank a safe procedure to do? or overfilling the gas tank can cause liquid gas to enter the charcoal canister and cause some serious...
  11. 2013 Automatic Gas Pedal

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hey guys, I was just vacuuming the interior of my 2013 Mazda 3 automatic sedan and I'm looking at the gas pedal and is it supposed to be really small? It almost seems as if it's missing and just the metal stump is there. The brake pedal looks normal. Does anyone have a picture of a stock gas...

  14. Poor gas mileage

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I'm managing to get only 23mpg in city driving. mine is a 2.5L 6spd. On an aggressive driving scale I would say I drive a 7 or 8. I still expected better gas mileage. There are 300hp V6s that are giving 21mpg so to be getting such low mpg in a SkyActiv is surprising. For comparison, I have a...
  15. Is it normal for me to get such a low gas mileage with my driving habits?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I have a 2016 Mazda 3 hatchback (2.0 L automatic). It’s currently at around 1,700 miles. The past 2 times I’ve filled my gas, I’ve gotten 30.6 mpg (254 miles) and 30.26 mpg (270 miles). I did a decent amount of short distance, street-only driving, but I drove to and from work on the freeway (20...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hello everyone. A few weeks ago I was halfway done with a 2000 mile road trip, when I got my oil changed and tires rotated at a dealer in St. Louis, MO (it was a dealer I purchased the car at). After, I noticed an immediate average drop of 10mpg, which is just sickening. By the time I...
  18. Why cant Mazda hang the gas pedal?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Mazda hang the clutch and brake pedals but they decided to put the gas pedal to the floor. Its really bothering me with all the rock and dust gathering there and especially in winter snow melts on pedal and getting into the car.
  19. Does Wawa do bad gas or is it just 92 or just bad luck of the draw

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I am tuned for 93... Last week I picked up 92 at Wawa and noticed my MPG was like 22-28 and that was on CC. performance was also very bad for a tune. Today I picked up 93 at Chervon I think it was and now I can pull 35-38 quickly and even CC myself back into 41+ Was that 92 just terrible...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I keep pretty active in Mazda forums such as here and groups on facebook. Once in a while people will post about gas mileage and such. Something I noticed is everyone seems to be getting significantly better gas mileage then me. I'm starting to wonder if something wrong with my car or not. I...
