Reading Topic: My Fuel Economy Has Improved Dramatically

I wonder what mileage you V6 manual owners get in the average? I am a bit scary of a dramatic increase in fuel consumption since my actual car is a 4-cyl.

Reading Topic: My Fuel Economy Has Improved Dramatically

Got my 6s AT at the end of January this year. I have just passed 5K, with about 80% of that being on the freeway between 70-90 mph. I have noticed a steady milage rate of about 23 mpg and a range between 350-380 miles. Gas is $2.45 a gallon here in the SCV.

Got 29mpg on a trip to my parent's recently. All highway with cruise control set at 70(cops everywhere) and the A/C on in a 6s mtx with 10k.

Though it's usually much, much lower than that. Typically get around 21-22mpg with 80% highway miles. But that's with a lead foot on the interchanges and ramps and cruising around 80mph.

Current: 2000 Celica GT 5 speed
Sold: 2003 Mazda6s mtx

I may have one of the higher mileage cars; it's fully broken in. I purchased my '03 the first week they were available in the States, November of 2002. I have 30,000+ miles on my car and I do mostly highway driving, about 85-mile daily roundtrip.

I consistently get 25-27 MPG, so I am pretty happy. BTW, it's a V6 with MTX.

About the same here, 26-27 mpg 90% freeway at 80-85 mph. I have over 25,000 miles on the clock so far in less than a year. To be honest, I haven't noticed a signifigant increase in mileage from new, maybe 1 mpg.

I took a trip to Kent yesterday. Filled up before I left, and went to the pump again today. I got 28.5 MPG on this trip. I have an S auto, so those are great numbers. I had 318 miles down and another 3/8 of a tank left till empty when I filled up. I hit 4000 miles on the trip, so hopefully this trend of better MPG as the car ages will continue
