2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata: Fuel Economy Update for December — Future Looks Bright
by Travis Langness, Social Media Editor on January 11, 2016
Since our long-term 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata was added to our fleet late last month, we didn't have much time to accumulate fuel-economy data in November. At the end of December, there was more data to look at and we've got our first glimpse of what we can expect from the Miata over the next year.
The Miata arrived at our office with 800 miles on the odometer and since then we've added about 2,700 miles of our own. We've already beaten the EPA's highway estimate with a long road trip at the hands of Testing Assistant Reese Counts. Overall, we're hovering right around the combined estimate. So basically, things look great.
Worst Fill MPG: 22.2
Best Fill MPG: 35.7
Average Lifetime MPG: 29.5
EPA MPG Rating: 30 Combined (27 City/34 Highway)
Best Range: 321.5 miles
Current Odometer: 3,493 miles
