Re: Gas Mileage Problem - 2007 Mazda3i Sport
Thanks alot, ill get back to this post after I change the filter and clean the MAF
how many miles per gallon should I expect on a car like mine? say in the ball park of 25?
Pretty much depends on your driving habits. With the mods in my signature, I can consistently get around 19/20 mpg in strictly city in my ATX, not exactly a light foot either. Then when I went to Maryland and back I got 33. Pretty much depends on your driving habits and that. I would check out the MAF sensor. If it doesn't solve your problem, it will just prevent future oddities. Check the filter on the Simota. If it is dirty, you can get a K&N recharge kit and clean the filter. (At least I am pretty sure you can. I did on my Cold Air intake) Also, if you have your AC on it can make your mileage drop. I go windows down 95% of the time. Also, the last little thing that can rob your power would be where you keep your AC compressor set to. If you have the climate control set to front defrost, even if you have it set to setting "0" (zero) it will still be on. So just start off with that. If that all fails, you can try Seafoam. If you search you can find a thread on exactly how to do it. It basically blows the carbon buildup out of your system. Check back if/when you try any of these things out and good luck.
