  3. fuel mileage monitor

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    2019 sedan premium Based on the instrument panel, my "avg mpg" started out around 31 mpg. Over 1500 miles it has dropped to 25.4. I get about 370 miles per fill up, 11.4 gallons - that's over 32 mpg (a lot of highway). So I don't believe the 25.4. I made a 30 mile trip today on the highway...
  4. Interesting observation: huge difference between city and hwy mileage

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    2015 Mz3 iGT Hatch Auto. I have enough data now that I can say decisively that this car's fuel economy is interesting. Coming off a 2003 Pontiac Vibe, a 1997 Civic before that, and a 2000 Corolla before that, this car has the largest difference between city and highway mileage. The Vibe would...
  5. 06 Mazda3 -2.3l Sudden Drop mileage

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    Hi All Within one tank of fuel my mileage went from 29-30 to around 20/21mpg. I have tried everything I can think of to correct the problem without any effect. What I have done so far : 1) Replaced spark plugs - The old ones looked OK, no unusual build up. 2) New Filter 3) New MAP sensor...
  6. 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...
  7. Kn drop in filter worse fuel mileage

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    So my car was due for a new air filter, and I thought I'd give a kn a try. Long story short, my commute to work is about 30km of 100kmh highway driving and about 3 or 4 kind of stop and go. And I found im lucky to get 6.5 or closer to 7l/100km on a warmer day, where as I swear i could get closer...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Hello there. Don’t know if this is the right thread to post my question. But here it goes. Yesterday my cars average was @32MPG. After driving it for approximately 15 miles. I stopped and had it topped up with gasoline. After that I went and drove and checked my MPG and it went up to 37MPG. Any...
  9. 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...
  10. Noob question. Do our cars show fuel mileage anywhere on the console?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    So far I've been manually resetting my trip meter to calculate my mileage every fill up but I was wondering if it's already built in and also if there is a way to see how many liters are remaining...
  11. Winter fuel mileage

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    So i know about cars getting a bit worse fuel mileage, but my auto seems to be quite bad at below freezing. Doing 120kmh on the colder days I'm sitting in the 7-7.5 l/100kmh range. For comparison, my gf's Pontiac g6 v6 gets about 8l/100km in same conditions. I've read car and drivers fuel...
  12. Michelin A/S 3+ Mileage Wear?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    I recently pulled off my Michelin A/S3+ tires at 5,600 total miles (installed my winter wheel set). I am a bearcat on keeping tire pressures accurate, and the car was checked for alignment immediately after they went on (no adjustment needed). I occasionally drive my car hard on curvy country...
  13. What Mileage was your first Check Engine light?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Check engine light came on this morning at 4370mi, barely a month an a half in. The whole point of buying a new car was to not have to deal with this for a few years. Only thing that changed is throwing the snow tires on which read about 2 mph faster than GPS. If anything I would have thought...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hi all, I'm looking at used 2014 M3s and wondering about mileage / longevity - budget is 12k. Looking at 1 owner with good service records. How are 3s once they're over 40k? Anything to watch out for? General advice welcome - thanks!
  16. Horrible Gas Mileage

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    I have a 2017 Mazda 3 Grand Touring that is 2 months old. I previously drove a Mazda cx5 and loved it. I love my new car but HATE HATE the gas mileage Im getting. I've driven it in town for simple errands and have had to fill up twice as more as my SUV. I recently drove an hour and half to and...
  17. 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...
  18. 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...

  20. Is buying 2014 Mazda 3 with EXTREMELY high mileage worth it?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Hi all, Newbie here and I hope this is the right forum to ask this question. I've always loved the 3 and I have decided it will be my next car. Just test drove an i Sport yesterday and was very happy with it (aside from it not being a hatch). While this one had low mileage on it at a decent...
