Once upon a time I managed over 500 miles on my 2009 Mazda3 i Touring with a 5-Speed, and that car didn't have anywhere near the fuel economy ratings of our new (on order) 2016 Mazda3 s GT 5-Door with a 6-Speed manual. While 621 miles may not be manageable given the way I drive and the hilly environment I drive in, getting to the 600 mile mark may be doable.

So far, we're doing about 640 km between refills, taking about 10 gallons, with maybe 40 or 50 miles to spare before going to reserve. Just got the car a couple weeks ago: 2 tankfuls.

First real test will be a trip from here (Charlottesville, Va) to Columbus, OH area where our daughter lives. The ole VW TDI always did it with plenty of fuel left over, but it has a fair bit larger tank. Also, it never recognized those big W. Va mountains. They weren't there as far as any gear or speed change needed. It'd do an indicated 44-45 mpg, but actual mileage was more like about 41 (the computer lies, just like VW did on those NOx tests). The computer value on the Mazda3 is extremely pessimistic.
