A rental?? Interesting. Holiday car?

Mileage is impressive. 37-38 mpg can be had with a healthy dose of silly driving. Any attempt at conservative driving gets it into the 40s. This is with the slushbox.
That IS impressive!

It's kinda disappointing to have to put so much effort (driving) and mods into squeaking 50 from mine when you could probably get very close to 50 from a brand new bone stock manual.


I am half-tempted to ask Mazda Canada if they would consider loaning me one from their press fleet to write about here.
