2.3 auto trans - fuel economy
Just curious what kind of fuel economy those with Maz3 2.3L auto transmissions get.
Having recently bought a 2009, with 112k on it, I did my first check and got 26.5 mpg, with city driving. Some of that was rather spirited driving (it is difficult to not drive this thing hard), but most of the time I wasn't on the throttle very hard. I was pleasantly surprised, and was afraid I would see it in the low 20s. I imagine I could get in the low-mid 30s on the highway, using cruise control and keeping it 65 or under.
