2008 Mazda 3 1.6 Tamura
« on: December 28, 2012, 07:32:48 PM »
Hi folks, new member. Purchased a 2008 Mazda 3 Tamura in Mica Black with full sports pack - what a car :) My only real concern at the moment is that it seems a bit gutsy on the fuel. Has anyone had the same issue? It is being used for small journeys at the moment and thought maybe the cold weather would play a part in this but it seems to get less mpg than my wifes car which is a citreon xsara picasso :-[

I've got the same car and fuel economy does get a lot worse during town driving. In town my fuel light comes on about 360 miles, but out of town and doing below 80 I get over 420 miles before it comes on.

By the way - great choice of car and colour!!  ;)
