bad fuel economy, I guess thats why 2006-2008 models do have a trip computer but the trip computer was not able. 2009 to present all have same trip computer that provides MPG,distance to empty and somewhat of an improved gas mileage. see full Mazda CX-7 review

With european fuel prices you can drain your wallet refuelling this car. However when you compare with other having 260 HP it is still not so bad see full Mazda CX-7 review

It just needs to be a few mpg better i.e. 20/25. This of course is exacerbated by the price of fuel. see full Mazda CX-7 review

Pretty poor, especially under 100% city driving. Not too much less than its competitors though. Most people see the CX7 has a 4 cylinder and think great mpg. Turbos eat gas! Highway mpg is on par with other vehicles in its size and weight range. see full Mazda CX-7 review

EPA ratings of 17/24, but I've averaged barely 18 overall in my first 1200 miles...hoping for a slight improvement after break-in. UPDATE- as of 02/11/2013, I am averaging 20-21mpg overall with 4200 miles on the clock. On a recent 380-mile interstate trip, I managed 22.8mpg with the cruise set at 80mph. see full Mazda CX-9 review
