    Yup..no way..just bizarre inaccurate fuel gauge. I have noticed strange fuel gauge behaviour on the 2010 2.0L MZR as well.

    Put it this way, 55L tank and assume 260km and 5.0L/100 km. That's about 13L of fuel used or about 24% of the total tank. So ya, 1 square is totally off.

    Greyseason's fuelly page is innaccessible so no way to see the real figures

    how can i make it accessible? That photo was also at the end of its 'square' it disappeared on start up when it was idling high to warm up. Seems lejit to me, but i also fill it up to the brim with gas. he's what mine is as i was leaving work today around 330


    ^ according to my brain math, im getting around 80km per square, but it seems to go down quicker once im past half. i should go out and take a pic, but once i got home, around 20min ago from work (70ish km drive) i was at 4**km and was at a quarter tank. I think ill go do that.

    How big is the tank? What's the best you can do on a full tank?

    Damn it, I'm going to have to book a Sky 3 for a couple weeks and see what I think. I really didn't enjoy the Sky CX-5.

    its a 55L tank, but i remember when i first bought it, the dealer put like 60L in, and i found that when the car was brand new, i got better gas milage. Maybe that was from me driving 'proper.' the best ive done, on almost a full talk is 8** something, but i usually fill up at half tank. lemme see if i have the picture. got it.

    i think if i keep driving the way i have been, i can beat that.

    Ps, anybody in the kw area should go to stratford to grab gas, i filled up for $1.211 yesterday! awesome compared tot he $1.275 in kitchener

    I have to add in, it's all about how you drive. I try and keep just under 100 on the highway. I was at 430km when I left this morning. I was in a bit of a rush so I went 120 almost the whole way there, ad I could definitely notice my mileage goes down. From about 80km per square, to 40 ish. I'm not usually in a rush, so my gas usage shows that.

    Forgive me if I'm missing something but how is each 'square' 80km of driving if you went 411km and were only down 3 squares? By my math thats almost 140km per square. Which seems unrealistically high even for a Skyactiv. The fuel gauges aren't linear on our cars but damn 400+km on a 1/4 tank? That's like TDi territory, maybe even better, which can't be right... You sure theres nothing wrong lol?

    Also, you shouldn't be filling the tank to the top of the filler neck. It's bad for the EVAP system. The pump stops for a reason. I'm sure this also has something to do with your seemingly impossibly good fuel economy lol.

    is that so? the EVAP thing? i never knew that, ill have to try that from now on. Usually i get about 120-150 before my first square goes down, and im assuming thats cause i fill it right up. im gunna run this tank low to see what i get, then ill fill it up til the pump stops and see what i get

    edit, the picture with 585km is more accurate to what ive been getting but still high, i get around 450-500 at half tank usually.

    At the end of the day, all that matters is how many km's travelled total divided into total # of Litres to fill up. Fast or slow squares is irrelevant. I would be more impressed seeing a calibrated ScanGauge2 showing fuel consumption during driving both on the highway and city.

    Yes the number of squares isn't actually relevant for fuel economy. But it is good to know that your fuel gauge is correctly reading the amount of fuel in the tank.

    What I really want to know is, is this all highway driving (I assume it must be) and what speed do you usually average?

    Default Re: **For Future owners** 2.0L MZR vs 2.0L SkyActiv

    I would like to add my experiences with my new Skyactiv since May 18th.

    1st fillup - 617 km - 7.09 litres/100 km.
    2nd fillup - 527 km - 8.76 litres/100 km
    3rd fillup - 589 km - 6.74 litres/100 km
    4th fillup - 606 km - 6.56 litres/100 km

    Average = 7.24 litres/100 km overall. :-)

    The last fillup included half time highway driving at 100-110 km.hr with cruise control on and the rest city driving. The first three fillups were 90% city driving. Not bad for this period in the cars life. I expect that after the first oil change it will get even better.

    Do you guys notice that after 1/2 tank, the fuel bars drop really quickly?

    Like GreySeason, I got like 400 km at 1/2 tank. When I hit around 480 km, around 3 bars of gas drop and I'm only left with 3 bars?

    Depends, this week I've been doing around 95-100, but on my way to work I usually feel rushed so ill go 110-120, and it's about 99% highway this week

    When I fill up I'll post my L/100km with my findings. Since I found about fuelly, I use it every fill up

    Yes the fuel gauge does not decrease linearly. It seems to be a Mazda 3 thing in general not just a SkyActiv thing. My GT does it too. Though it seems like its even less linear for the SkyActiv based on what you're saying. 3 bars disappearing after only 80km of driving seems odd.

    Maybe it's b/c I do 90% city driving -__-
    I had to fill up last night at around 560 km travelled (before the light turned on)

    My tank was 1/2 way when I travelled around 350-400 km
    Then another 1/3 gone around 480
    Then finally another 2 bars gone around 560.
