At over 30K of experience between me and the ECU this NA engine has grown into a gem of an engine. Whats funny is that it probably always was a gem. I just needed to adjust my programming a bit as well. IMO

My first Mazda six (diesel) engine was much sweeter in its third year with over 100,000 miles on the clock than it was in its first year, but this is probably due just as much to my right foot learning instinctively how to drive it, and the engine components being properly bedded in, as it was to any ECU 'learning by doing'. On the one hand unless Mazda are total idiots, then the very first time the ECU experiences a knock, it knows what exactly what to do about it. But I also know that sensors that convert analogue signals back and forwards to digital information need to be 'run in' and that this may cause a burn in period in the same way that my expensive CD player sounded better after it had been used for 100 hours than out of the box.


Hopefully in three years time I'll be able to tell you how I experience a Turbo 6, assuming they ever come to Denmark.

Ever since I got my 2018 GT Reserve, I've been lead heavy with my left foot.... My mpg is suffering because of it... I went from 33 mpg from my 2016 Mazda 6 GT to 28 mpg....

I CAN'T HELP IT!!!! I'm constantly looking for an excuse to drive it all the time! It's pretty much the most HP car I've ever owned and I'm wasting so much money on gas because I'm only putting premium in it. Oh well I guess I can live with that as long as I get the speeeeeeeeeeeeed!

This is actually really good for ~60% city. I get only ~33 (on Fuelly, with similar driving) in my 3 cylinder Ford Focus, so ~28 in the Mazda with an automatic and literally twice the power and torque and an extra 600 lbs is absolutely spectacular. I was also surprised the C&D got 36 on the highway.

I bought a new 6 signature edition on 6/20 and took it for a road trip that weekend. On nearly all highway driving, the car reported 32.6 mpg.
