Use a more fuel efficient tire and better plug, wire and coil and you might get up to 4 to 7 % better mileage.

Plus, don't forget to test 'er out at different highway speeds, I'm guessing that she'll do better mileage wise at between 57 and 64 mpg rather than a lower speed or higher.

Good to hear from ya and that Beemer isn't bad. 22 mpg, well, that a tad too low for me, so if it weres [no, I didn't misspell anything mind you, jus chattin 'at ya with that kuntry style] me, I'd reckon I'd have to bump that mileage figure a might bit higher! You have the vehicle, you can experiment with it a bit and make it better all the way around while you're at it.

WAAAAHHH!!! BOOO HOOO HOOO!!! Let me know when the funeral services are and where they'll be held! However, look to the bright side! You'll get to experiment with another vehicle, hopefully soon enough! Used or new? The replacement that is!

I've posted to your topic of the most efficient speed there and just as an afterthought, I figured I'd write here as well. Take some time to experiment yourself. Test your Mazda at different highway cruising speeds yourself. Try it at 60 to 65 mph at first as that's where I think you'll get the best results. I'd like to hear what you've found from doing it. Every vehicle is different, and DonKofAK and oilpan4 and others are correct.

As to your "most efficient speed" posting: Buy or borrow a Scangauge II -- it plugs into your car's computer and displays a host of interesting facts, including instantaneous mileage and cost per mile along with speed -- digitally. This allows one to experiment with different speeds to identify the optimal speed or the most efficient speed for each car as equipped (with tires, transmission, trailer, luggage rack, etc.) I suspect I have recovered its $170 cost with a mixture of fuel savings, knowledge garnered, revised driving habits and entertainment.
