I have a V6 auto MAZDA6 Sports Sedan GS ( 14,500 now ). Worst mpg was 18 in almost all stop and go, when the car had just a 1000 miles on it. Over the past two years I have gotten about 21 mpg in a 70/30 mix of suburban and highway driving. 23 mpg tops when I do 60/40, and I'm not driving aggressively,
The best mpg so far, was on a recent 175 trip on rural and interstate highways, 60 mph average - 28.3 mpg. I'm happy.
one day, I talked to two other owners at the dealership who have v6s, and one said 29 highway, the other said 30. If I didn't have about 125 of those 175 miles on the rural highway with occasional stop and go traffic, stop signs/stop lights thru the small towns, I believe 30 mpg on the Interstate is very achievable.
#112 of 119 Mazda 6 Gas mileage

I have a basic 2007 I4 with a 5 speed. I do about 90% of my driving on the highway. I have carefully tracked my mileage (have put over 40000 miles on it in the past year). The worst mileage I have gotten has been 32. The best (two different tanks) has been 39. During the Summer it averages 36 to 37. During the Winter closer to 33 to 34. I find it does a fair bit better at 70 miles per hour as opposed to 75. (Our speed limit here in CO) I am not sure why my numbers are so much better than other postings on this site.

Does anyone have some real world numbers on what you're getting with the I4 auto?

I have a 2009 Mazda 6I Touring with Convenience Package (Automatic Tranny). I do 100% city driving, my car has about 1700 miles on it and I've been getting about 13.5 to 14 mpg. In all honesty, I think that something is wrong with my car. Can anyone confirm this? Will my mileage get any better? Should I bring it to the dealer to get checked out?

I would take a little road trip and see if you can tell what hwy mileage is. City driving is so different for everyone what with the stoplights, congestion etc. If you live in a very congested area that could be the reason. The EPA doesn't take the worse case when it estimates city mpg.

I have a 2007 6i 5-door, 4 cyl w/5 speed auto. I live in Detroit. My driving is a city/highway mix. I'm getting between 22-24 city and 28-30 highway. a little less in winter. I'm very happy with the car.
I hope this helps.

I have the same thing except mine is a 4dr and my mileage results after 28k miles is similar to yours. Most long trips I can get 32-33 mpg. I usually drive 5 over the speed limit. However, when I drive in Michigan where the speed limits are 70 and the potholes are large I tend to drive pretty much at the speed limit.
#118 of 119 Very consistent mpg...
Aug 25, 2009 (6:04 am)
2003 6s, 5 speed, 89000 miles
worst tank 20.6
best tank 25.9
lifetime everage 22.3
Considering the EPA figures were 18/26 and the fact that I tend to drive this car kind of hard, I'm happy with it. Note: this car has an AEM cold air intake and Racing Beat exhaust (neither one seemed to affect the mpg either way).
#119 of 119 Happy with my 2007 6i 5-door mileage
Aug 25, 2009 (6:28 am)
Just to respond. I have a 2007 6i 5-door Touring w/ the 5 speed auto, with 52,000 miles. It's my second 6. The first got stolen and totaled. Overall all driving in mixed city and some freeway in the Detroit area, I get between 24-25 mpg weekly in summer and 22-24 mpg weekly in winter. On long trips, I get 28-30 mpg at a consistant 70-80 mph. I'm very happy given this a mid-size car with the automatic.Also, I've had no problems at all with the car. It's very reliable.
I wish the current 6 model in the US still came in a 5-door version.
