2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata: Fuel Update For June - Holding Steady
by Brent Romans, Senior Automotive Editor on July 14, 2016
Our 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata had another quiet month, totaling up about 800 miles in June. Maybe you can blame me, since I've been the one driving it a majority of the time. In my defense, the lack of miles has more to do with the car's lack of practicality (compared to other vehicles in our long-term fleet) than anything relating to my desire to drive it. For those 800 miles, though, our Miata put up fuel economy numbers similar to what we observed in prior months.
We did drop slightly, going from a 30.1 mpg lifetime average last month to 29.9 mpg this month. But that's still keeping us right at what the EPA says we should be getting for combined driving. Thirty mpg from a car that encourages you to drive it with enthusiasm? I'll take it.
Worst Fill MPG: 22.2 mpg
Best Fill MPG: 37.5 mpg
Average Lifetime MPG: 29.9 mpg
EPA MPG Rating: 30 Combined (27 City/34 Highway)
Best Range: 329 miles
Current Odometer: 10,823 miles
