    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. Fuel Tank

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    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...

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion

  5. Full tank range varies

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion

  6. 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?
  7. Gasoline pouring out of tank after removing nozzle at station

    Engine and Performance
    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...
  8. Tank fillup did not

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    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...
  9. 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...

  12. 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...

  16. A dead spider fell into my fuel tank

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    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...
