I average about 8.5 L/100 km, so even though it uses Premium fue, it only costs about $40 to drive as much as 475km. This is with gas at about $1.20 a litre. see full Mazda MX-5 Miata review

Excellent mileage. I get 36mpg on normal highway cruises and about 28mpg in town. When I go to the race track, I run around 22-24 mpg. If you are really savvy, this car burns about 2 gallons an hour! So cheap to keep on the road. see full Mazda MX-5 Miata review
