  1. Just bought a Mazda 3 hatchback 2018. A Q on fuel economy

    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...
  2. Full tank range varies

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Good evening gents and ladies, I'm a little puzzled. When I get a full tank of gas, the mileage range varies. One time I've seen 399 miles, while tonight in getting 285. Has anyone seen this?
  3. Fuel range readings

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I have a 2014 Mazda 3 with 64000 miles. When I used to fill up the gas tank all the way and I will check the fuel range it would be over 400 miles. Now I do the same thing and it gives me a reading much lower. I don't understand this.

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hey guys I have recently bought a JL 10" W0 sub ported jl box with the JL jx250 mono block amp. My issue is that the sub is missing strange ranges of bass for example the song "Boss Mode" by "knife Party" or "Beautiful Pain" by "Eminem" bump hard but songs like "Still Dre" by "Dr. Dre" or...
  5. Stiff clutch pedal and wide engagement range

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    I just recently picked up an 11 Mazda 3s Sport 2.5. I'm coming from a 6 speed VW and the clutch in this Mazda seems so much different, is it normal? I find the clutch pedal very stiff and the engagement range is sooooo wide. Like it starts engaging about 1" off the floor then there's about...
  6. How is the 'Range' stat calculated?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    when I fill up, it always say 400+ miles left no matter what the car computer said my previous mpg was. So how is it calculated when I fill up?
  7. Fuel Range estimated

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I'm wondering if we can make a poll of how much range we're getting out of a tank when we fill up.. When my 2016 3 had under 500 miles on the odometer, the range meter showed around 400-415 miles when I filled the tank.. Now, at just over 5000 miles, the range is around 320-360 miles when I fill...
  8. Range showing 0

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    So I started up my car in the morning and all the sudden my fuel light pops up. It says my fuel tank is at empty and my range is 0. Weird thing is I filled up like two days before, and was at ~600km range the night before. But as I keep driving, the bars on the fuel meter slowly moves back up...
  9. Normal Temperature Range

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Does anyone know what the normal temperature range (coolant temperature, I mean) is supposed to be? Like, when does the red light come on? I've been using "Torque" on my phone to read a bunch of OBDII data while driving, and one of the ones I was most excited about was the coolant...
  10. Fuel Range Indicator Wrong

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I received an OEM interior light kit as a gift and decided to install it on my 2012 skyactiv yesterday. When I finished the install I turned the car on to check that it worked properly and everything worked fine. Today, when I went to drive, I noticed that the range on the MID was about 100 less...
  11. A/C normal cycling range?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Searched a few basic keywords and Google for information regarding the compressor cycling rates for the 2012 Skyactive, with no real results. So I thought I would post here. My AC blowing from the vents is cold for 4-5 seconds, then warms up for 4-5 seconds...this is leading me to feel that the...

  13. What's the Age range and sex orientation of everyone on the forum. Just curious.

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    So I was wondering what the range in ages we have on the forum. I always heard oh to mod a car you gotta be a high school boy, or oh that's for young kids. Well I love playing around with my car and I'm 28, I'm a girl and Im as straight as can be. So maybe this stereotypes or myths shouldn't...
  14. Why am I getting this increase in range?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I moved from a place about 700 feet above sea level and filling up with 87 octane gas. Now I'm living in a place a 5280 feet (a mile) above sea level using 85 octane. Back at my old place, a full tank of gas would give me a range of about 416 miles after filling up, according to that console...
  15. Key fob range

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Hi everyone! This is my 2nd post in this forum :shuriken: Is it me or the key fob range is really small? If I'm ~15 feet away from the car, I don't think I can unlock/lock the doors. At first, I thought my batteries were dying but.... I've only had the car since April this yr.
  16. RANGE indicator... How far do you push it?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    So, I usually pushed the MID fuel range number to under 20 miles left before I finally stop to fill up. A couple days ago, in a hurry to meet my wife and kids at the pub, and not wanting to stop on the way, I pushed it to 7 miles remaining. So it got me to thinking, how accurate is the fuel...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    anyone else getting really random displays? normally a full tank'll display around 420 miles for me, but there're times (like this past fill up) the range'll be about 390 miles. same shell gas station, always at night, always 89 octane. i can understand a 10 mile difference, but a whole 30? i...
