Where's the gas mileage
By azga on


1999 Mazda B-Series Pickup B3000 SE 4dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


I bought this truck with 23,000 miles.
It's a nice truck, but avgs about 12mpg.
It's gone as low as 9 and as high as 19.
The dealer wouldn't fix it. I had to go
to another dealer. They replaced the
computer, ign. coil and rear driveshaft
and the yoke on differential. This truck
had 30,000 miles. That improved the mpg
by 3mpg. This is a V-6 not a V-8. It
also has a problem they can't find with
the gas gauge varying. Sometimes it's
1/3 tank, then empty and the low fuel
light is on, then back to 1/3 tank. Once
it's below 1/3 tank you don't know how
much gas is left. It is great for
towing. It handles very well in adverse
conditions or when doing emergency

Best Features

The 4 doors, but looks like a 2 door. The bench seat with the shifter on the column.The best a/c and heat I've ever had.

Worst Features
