Mazda Mazda3 Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2014 Ever since gas guzzling rotary engines almost put Mazda out of business in the 1970s, fuel economy has been a company weakness. The 2013 Mazda3 with a 167-horsepower 2.5-liter engine and five-speed automatic transmission managed only 22 mpg city, 29 mpg highway in the EPA's tests. (The same engine with a manual transmission did even worse, 20/28.) The 2014 with a new SKYACTIV 184-horsepower 2.5-liter engine and six-speed automatic transmission fares much better, 27 mpg city and 37 mpg highway. A $1,600 Tech Package (on the tested car) adds a capacitor-based regenerative braking system that bumps these ratings to 28/38. Quite impressive for a large, fairly powerful four-cylinder engine. The i's 155-horsepower 2.0-liter engine does a bit better still, 30/40, but anyone who cares about driving will gladly trade a 2-3 mpg to pick up 29 horsepower. In my real-world, sub-freezing suburban driving, the trip computer reported a two-way average around 40 mpg when I drove with a feather-light right foot. Push the car harder and high-20s to mid-30s happen. The Focus also manages 27/37 in the EPA's tests, but wasn't quite as efficient as the Mazda in my real-world driving. Others including the 23/35 Dodge Dart GT and 21/29 Kia Forte SX don't come close. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

Even with the 2.5L 'S' Option, the Mazda SkyActiv tech gives the Mazda3 a very impressive 28/39MPG. The 2.0L standard option gives 31/42. That's pretty standard in most new cars, however the performance for that economy is well above average. Good engines, these are. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

I drive it on the highway at a constant speed of about 78 with the cruise control on, for my daily commute . Very little traffic on my commute, and speed limit is 70. I get about 33 mpg, or 380 miles per tank. I've found that long-range runs of an hour or more seems to burn out the gunk, and I have better fuel economy for the next week or two. I figure driving near 80 is killing the advertised 39 mpg with the Skyactiv engine. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

While reviews are mixed, the Skyactiv engine delivers as promised for me. With over 70% city/suburb driving, I've yet to average under 30mpg (odo/pump). Set the cruise control at 65-70 and > 40mpg is easy on a flat highway. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

Fuel economy has been OK. I usually do a 50/50 mix and in good weather, I get in the high 7s/100km or about 30 MPG. In the cold weather, it's been closer to 9L/100km or about 26 MPG. Strangely, it's about the same economy I got with my 99 Civic w/ 4 spd auto. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Mazda Mazda6

Mazda Mazda6 Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2014 This year every Mazda6 has a 184-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine under its hood. The 2013's less powerful (170hp) 2.5-liter four managed only 21 mpg city, 30 highway. The 2014 does far better: 26/38 with the automatic transmission and 25/37 with the manual. When fitted with a 178-horsepower 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and manual transmission, the Ford Fusion earns identical EPA ratings. An Accord with a 189-horsepower 2.4-liter and manual transmission checks in lower, 24/34. In real world driving, the trip computer reported averages in the 30s--and as high as 38--in casual suburban driving and about 36 on a 70-mph highway. With such impressive numbers, I'm tempted to place fuel economy higher in the reasons to buy a Mazda6. see full Mazda Mazda6 review

The fuel economy on this car is pretty good in my opinion. Its a petrol automatic and if I do half a tank of fuel on Motorways with the speedo at 80 - 85 and the rest of the tank around town I will see 40 MPG. I don;t think one can complain too much about this. If I do all short journeys and no motorway mileage I can probably get around 35, which again is pretty good. see full Mazda Mazda6 review

Fuel economy is good but not as good as Mazda claims, in 9 months I'm averaging about 28 MPG combined in 60/40 city to highway driving and now in the winter months here in Minnesota, where you need to let the vehicle warm up for a minute or two in cold weather conditions and using winter gas. Still better than most cars in this class and the Skyactiv weight reducing and engine and transmission improvements really do seem to contribute to a fuel efficient car that is still fun to drive and nice to look at! see full Mazda Mazda6 review

Not necessarily a dislike, just a natural trade off for having 270 horsepower on tap. Averaging 22mpg with mostly city and traffic driving. It actually still bests my old 00 VW Golf turbo, which typically mustered only 20mpg with half the horsepower! see full Mazda Mazda6 review

The only minor complaints I have about this car comes from the engine. It puts out slightly less horsepower than racing engines of the same size, but eats just as much gas, roughly 15% more than I expected from an engine this size. This is something Mazda has drastically improved in recent years, but remains something to watch out for in their larger engines before 2010. see full Mazda Mazda6 review
