2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata: Fuel Economy Update for April

by Josh Sadlier, Senior Editor on May 9, 2016

 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata

It was business as usual for our long-term 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata last month. We put 808 miles on the odometer — barely a third of our heroic March total — and filled the tank just three times, with a best tank of 32.3 mpg and a worst of 28.3 mpg.

That puts our lifetime average at 30.1 mpg, down a tenth from the last check-in. I may have cast aspersions on the SkyActiv engine's fun factor, but it sure seems to be delivering on the fuel-economy front.

There, I said something nice about this thing.

Worst Fill MPG: 22.2
Best Fill MPG: 37.5
Average Lifetime MPG: 30.1
EPA MPG Rating: 30 Combined (24 City/34 Highway)
Best Range: 329 miles
Current Odometer: 9,036 miles
