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

2016 4dr Sedan 143-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
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

26/38 rating is better than other sedans in its class. Averaging 32 with daily up and down mountain treks. Car maintains speed well and uses little gas keeping speed up. see full Mazda Mazda6 review
2014 4dr Sedan 184-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
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

Fuel economy over 71k has been 32.1 MPG. Pretty darn good for a non-hybrid and driving 75-85 mph pretty consistently. see full Mazda Mazda6 review

I regularly get 33-34 mpg commuting 35-55 mph with some stop and go driving distances of 30+ miles each way. Constant speed driving on interstates through central PA, DC, VA, CT, RI, with seldom slow traffic backups, the car gets 36-37 mpg. Usually set at about 3-4 miles over posted or at traffic flow speeds. see full Mazda Mazda6 review

So far seems higher than EPA estimates. Gearing close so that I can drive 30-40 around town in 5ht or even 6th. 6th should be further out to improve mileage even more. see full Mazda Mazda6 review

28.5 mpg. Driving to the interstate, taking the interstate to the other side of town, then driving to work (or home). see full Mazda Mazda6 review

24 MPg in the winter and 27 in the summer is not bad for a sedan that can do 140 mph (as fast as I have gone in the thing. Compared to SkyActive not great but then the newer Mazda’s are about flue economy more than performance. see full Mazda Mazda6 review
2006 4dr Sedan turbocharged 274hp 2.3L I4
6-speed manual AWD
I have kept a spreadsheet of the car's fuel economy since the car was brand new. Never made less than 20 mpg, average around 22-23 with city/highway mix. Best fuel economy strictly highway driving was 27.xx mpg. That's pretty impressive to me considering the power this car has. see full Mazda Mazda6 review

Hmmm...yes, this is the sore point. But to tell you the truth, I am getting a little tired of pursueing one at the loss of the other. And do enjoy regular gas. see full Mazda Mazda6 review

Well, the 4 cylinder was wonderful, averaging 25mpg, but the large 3.7 seems to be averaging around 21/22...not much better, if not the same, than the Lincoln MKS. But I DO drive this car really hard. Its difficult not to, its so much fun. see full Mazda Mazda6 review

Not very good unless you are on the highway only cruising. On the highway it can get 28+ mpg. However, in mixed driving you will be lucky to get 20 mpg. 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

6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
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

26mpg was the most I got on one long trip down south. I drove it mostly highway and usually got 21mpg, even when taking it easy. Around town I got 18mpg. Not great for a 4-cyl engine. My Saab has almost as much power and gets 24mpg around town. see full Mazda Mazda6 review
 

TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Toyota Corolla

Toyota Corolla Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2014 Those seeking to maximize fuel economy should check out the Corolla LE Eco, with EPA ratings for 30 mpg city, 42 highway. The regular LE checks in at 29/38, and the S at 29/37. Even the last is within spitting distance of the best in the segment, including the 30/39 Sentra. In my efficiency-minded suburban driving the trip computer reported an average of 37.7, a bit better than the 36I managed with the Sentra. Driving with less care for fuel economy netted 32, about even with the Nissan. The Toyota couldn't quite match the Nissanona 65-mph highway drive, though, with a two-way trip computer average of 38 vs. 40 (quite close to those EPA estimates). see full Toyota Corolla review

Fuel economy is great, as expected with 1.8 I4. EPA rated city driving at 28MPG but i have never been below 32. When cruising at 65 with A/C off, 40MPG is possible. The sole reason i bought the car was for economy. Paired with great MPG and great price, I would say this beats out a Prius if you want to save money. see full Toyota Corolla review

This car gets 25 City, 35 Highway. It looks like it should be able to do better, but it does not. The 3-speed Automatic with Overdrive (4-speed in reality) is dated and is only okay with the engine's performance. The engine itself, the 1ZZFE, has very few flaws, but is the final evolution of a 90's engine design, that gets okay horsepower, but goes through gas more than it should. And when they get older, they do go through more gas than they should. In addition, the engine can't handle E10 in cold weather (regular gasoline with "up to" 10 percent ethanol) without problems, requiring you to spend more on "REC" fuel, which is non-ethanol pure gasoline. On top of that, the drive by wire throttle has a noticeable delay between the hair trigger throttle and the engine surging forward, making smooth starts with the automatic difficult. see full Toyota Corolla review

The gearing which keeps the engine in its power band keeps it at 4k RPM on the highway (I go fast). 30MPG on premium fuel is not justified by the modest increase in power. see full Toyota Corolla review
