2010 Mazdaspeed 3: Best Car for Friday Light

September 03, 2010

"Friday Light" is the euphemism L.A. traffic reporters use to describe the not-as-horrendous-as-the-Mon-thru-Thurs-drive Friday morning traffic pattern.

This morning was truly light, and I made the 36-mile run from Seal Beach to Santa Monica in 50 minutes instead of the typical hour and fifteen. And I did it in the Mazdspeed 3, which made it fun instead of just quicker than usual.

But since the Mazda had under a quarter tank of gas when I left the house, it cost me a 12.276-gallon, $39.27-fill-up before I parked the car at the office.

Pay to play, as they say.
