    Does anyone know how big the gas tank is? I’m able to drive 400km on half a tank which seems amazing.

    Hello everyone, I’ve been on the highway with my 2019 Mazda 3 on petrol and stopped for refuel. When I’ve opened the fuel tank, I felt pressure coming out and a noise like you open a bottle of sparkling water. Also when I stop the engine and start it again, the fuel indicator shows me different...

    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?

    Hi all, This is my first post in the forum. I recently purchased my first car, A 2007 Mazda3 hatchback Automatic. I love my car a lot, but unfortunately someone has played a very cruel prank by breaking the gas tank cap and poured in a lot of sugar and closed the outer lid back again. I drove...

    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?

    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?

    Today something weird happened when I was pumping gas at a station. When the pump stopped and I removed the nozzle gasoline was coming out of my tank from the top(filling hole?) and it wasn’t stopping so I put the cap on. After a few seconds I removed the cap again and the gasoline kept pouring...

    The wife filled up her car today. It only took a little over 8 gallons with 25 miles showing on the range. She didn't think it filled. So she did 3 more clicks of the fill nozzle. When she got into the car, the range was only 335 miles; whereas, it normally shows close to 425 miles after a...

    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...

    Hey everyone! I was driving yesterday on a highway, when I ran out of petrol. At first car dropped RPM from 5.5K to ~4K when I was accelerating, and then after a while it just stopped. But I started worrying when I saw Engine Check light. I looked in car manual, and it said that Engine Check...

    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...

    How many of you have noticed the rumbling sound with a full tank of gas? Sounds like the muffler is rattling while idling in a stopped position? Well, Mazda has a new gas tank that corrects this issue. Finally getting it installed next week. Yahoo!

    At I was fueling up, I saw what appeared to be a dead spider right as it disappeared down the fuel hole. Should I be worried? I assume it's going to float on top until it either breaks down into nothing, or eventually gets caught in the fuel filter. I just don't want to be stranded somewhere...

    I have a 2015 m3 touring with the 2.0. When I fill the car and put it in reverse I can hear a thumping sound when I apply the breaks, it appears to be coming from the gas tank. Does anyone else have this?

    When filling your car with gas, Hold the trigger half way. You'll get more gas and less air in the tank....apparently :grin2:

    Question on gas tank size on 14 3Touring hatch. 2.5l ? I did notice that when fueling around when low fuel light comes on , car takes around 10 gallons of gas what should leave over 3 gallons in reserve assuming that we have 13.5 gallons tank , is that correct? Sounds like a lot for reserve...
