2014 Mazda 3: Fuel Economy Update for June
July 07, 2014
Our 2014 Mazda 3 travelled 1,100 miles during the month of June and increased its lifetime average by 0.2 mpg.
The majority of those miles were racked up by Senior Automotive Editor Brent Romans. Brent wanted to validate the Mazda 3's "Best Fill MPG" number of 41.1, so he took the Mazda 3 on a 242-mile highway trip to see what he could achieve. The result? 39.5 mpg, beating the EPA highway estimate by 2.5 mpg.
Worst Fill MPG: 22.2 mpg
Best Fill MPG: 41.1 mpg
Average Lifetime MPG: 28.7 mpg
EPA MPG Rating: 31 Combined (27 City/37 Highway)
Best Range: 342.2 miles
Current Odometer: 8,830 miles
