2014 Mazda 3: Fuel Economy Update for October

November 6, 2014

2014 Mazda 3

Our 2014 Mazda 3 got a rest from the roads in October, logging only about 1,000 miles. Most of this was due to more than a week of downtime at the dealer, first to solve our bizarre rattling issue and then to fix a brake dust shield knocked out of whack during the investigation.

But over the four tank-fills in October, we averaged 29 MPG combined, right in line with our current lifetime average. We also recorded one of the worst fills (23.3 MPG) of our long-term test. Only three other fills since late December have yielded fewer miles per gallon.

Worst Fill MPG: 22.2
Best Fill MPG: 41.1
Average Lifetime MPG: 29.3
EPA MPG Rating: 31 Combined (27 City/37 Highway)
Best Range: 358.1
Current Odometer: 16,005
