4 Ways to Maximize Your MAZDA CX-3 MPG

2019 Mazda CX-3While it’s clear to see why the Mazda CX-3 achieves such impressive efficiency, there’s also a few things you can do to keep your costs down when visiting the pump. They include:

Regular Oil and Filter Changes

Replacing the oil inside your Mazda CX-3 can have a significant impact not only on its fuel economy but also on its overall performance. For long-lasting results, it’s recommended that you change your SUV’s oil every 5,000 to 7,000 miles.

Avoid Carrying Excess Weight

While the Mazda CX-3 supplies seating for up to five with 44.5 cubic feet of available cargo space, you should limit carrying heavy weight unnecessarily. This proactive move will lessen the burden placed on your engine to perform.

Check Your Tire’s PSI Levels

Check Your Tire’s PSI LevelsProperly inflated tires make it easier to steer, brake, and accelerate. When your tires are under- or over-inflated, it puts extra pressure on your SUV. Over time, this can lead to a drop in its overall MPG.

Rotate and Inspect Your Tires

The average set of tires lasts 40,000 to 60,000 miles. To maximize their lifespan, it’s important to have your tires rotated every 5,000 to 10,000 miles. This makes sure your tire treads wear evenly.

Furthermore, at least once per month, you should make a point to visually inspect each tire for any blistering, sidewall bulges, or excessive tread wear.
