2006 Mazda RX-8 Real Gas Mileage: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2007 4dr Coupe 212-horsepower 1.3L R2
6-speed shiftable automatic RWD
The EPA numbers are way low compared with my real-world experience. The window sticker showed 18/25 and I have never seen less than 23 with my 40/60 city/highway commute. I think Mazda should develop a lean-burn economy cruise mode for this car. see full Mazda RX-8 review

6-speed manual RWD
Lite bit to high consumption when I drive it in normal speed. On full woot its ok. see full Mazda RX-8 review
2005 4dr Coupe 238-horsepower 1.3L R2

Worst fuel economy in its class. see full Mazda RX-8 review
