2007 Mazda 3 GS Fuel Economy?

hi people!

just wanted to get some insights on some things.

right now my main concern is that my engine light came on 2 days after I bought it. my dealer said I could bring it in to see why the light is on but it has since gone off and I'm not sure if it's still worth it to bring it in?

also, I'm not sure if my fuel economy is normal. I'm getting about 9.5 L / 100km on average, and I'm doing all city driving / commuting. however when I accelerate from stop, it can go up as far as like 50 L / 100km even though I am NOT slamming the pedal down by any means. I've been trying to be very conscious of this. one of my friends said that's not normal? help?

details on my car:

Mazda 3 GS four door
about 70,000 km

You shouldn't care what it says when you accelerate. As for your fuel economy it sure is better than mine! I mainly do city driving and i'm getting 11.3 l/100km on my 07 mz3 (2.3L).
But i'll blame that on my spirited driving

As for the check engine light, you can download an app for 5$ for android called "torque obd2 ..." and you just need to buy a bluetooth adapter for 30$. works exactly like a scanner and spits out any codes your engine gives out.
