2006 Mazda RX-8 Manual 4dr Coupe (1.3L 2rtr 6M)

Review

I have unintentionally redlined this vehicle many times as the engine as far as I can tell does not sound like it is over revving even when the rpm's are in the redline This forces me to inconveniently keep my eye on the tach more often than in a car with a conventional engine. I do not get the advertised fuel economy which was low in the first place when compared to a car with a conventional engine for the same h.p.

Suggested Improvements

Engine efficiency!

does yours not have the buzzer when you get 1000rpm from redline? Sounds like you had a lot to do with your poor gas mileage... I dont get great mileage either but it is within the advertised range...
