HOW FAR CAN A MAZDA GO ON EMPTY?

The roster of Mazda vehicles available at Holiday Mazda are some of the most fuel-efficient models that are available to customers. Over the years, Mazda vehicles have undergone a rebirth adding more unique styling to the company’s already incredibly fuel-friendly lineup. No matter how long a vehicle can go without having to stop at a gas station, some drivers will always try to push it just a little farther. Seeing the needle on a fuel gauge reach the ‘E’ is nerve racking, this anxiety compounded when a low-fuel warning light is shining like the sun on the dashboard. To help alleviate some fears, we answer how far can a Mazda go on empty.

A website called, TankOnEmpty.com, uses crowd sourced data to collect an average of how far each Mazda vehicle can travel once the needle hits empty or the low-fuel light activates. These figures can be affected by a driver’s aggressiveness, condition of the car and terrain. These numbers should be viewed through that lens. Also, it’s a good practice to not routinely allow your fuel level to get this low. It can cause damage to the fuel system.

If you would like to keep your vehicle’s fuel economy scores as high as possible for as long as possible, schedule a maintenance appointment with Holiday Mazda today.
