rated at 25-32mpg automatic... gee, my 85 does that, weighs more, also seats 7, cheaper to fix, cheaper to insure, and I can buy 15-20 of them for the same price....

Hmm

25-32mpg automatic would IMO require using a 1970's - 1980's power train gear ratios.

I suspect the mpg is a low guess to cover later test data.


61.4mpg is what I was reading.

It is usually hinted or outrightly stated by the various japanese diesel producers that their cars will surface in the north american market. All of them it seems in recent years have for whatever reason always renaged. We as consumers are not even sure of why this game is played. Or at least I do not know why.

I'll believe it when I hear one clattering next to me at a light.

Just repeating what I see on their own site about the engine....

Mazda SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY

Fuel Efficiency
26/35 mpg (Manual transmission, FWD)*

26/32 mpg (Automatic transmission, FWD)*

25/31 mpg (Automatic transmission, AWD)*

Edit,... oh wait, that's the G version (gas)


BUT, if you want a good one right now..... http://blogs.cars.com/kickingtires/2012/05/84-mpg-couple-break-mileage-record-with-passat-tdi.html

And I watch these being built everyday right here in Chattanooga

From posts on forums, it appears that this engine has problems with adding diesel fuel to the engine oil. Wonder what's causing that?

That 61.4mpg is imperial gallons I think. Still great MPG but not quite 62.
