Yes... this is the downfall of the 1st Gen v6. I get a little sad about how fast I use up the tank.

While I don't see over 40 mpg often (please don't make me define "often"), I do see 32 around town and 38 highway.
This 41.3 was mixed city/2-lane rural roads. There were 4 traffic lights and 3 stop signs.
It was with the snow tires and mid-20s temperatures.

Sometime this summer I am have to really try to see what it maxes at.

As a family we just took a 3k mile road trip in 7 days in our 11 Mazda 3 hatch and i got really excited to see 32.x miles per gallon when we filled up at the pump. That was 75mph on flat plains roads in the CA valley. The car has the 2.3 four cylinder in it. For your 6 sedan to get that mileage is pretty darn awesome!

Sky-active is not just rhetoric. I am very impressed with the car.

Those are definitely impressive numbers. NY area doesn't allow for many clean runs, but my best was 37.7 from Philly to Long Island which is a little over 160 miles and there was some 75mph stints plus a little traffic in there - still, don't think I could hit over 40mpg unless I was super efficient and lucky. Still, I'm extremely happy with this Mazda6. Nice job on hitting great mileage numbers.

Nice!!

Best I've got is about that when I was going down/back to/from South Carolina - Cruise control 67mph for endless miles on flat roads got me 620 miles on a single tank without even touching the reserves!

Spoke a little too soon on max mileage. Had a 39.4 mpg run today over a 95 mile run back from NJ according to the fuel economy app. Again, for the size, manual transmission with 19" wheels and tires, to me, very impressive.
