Vehicle size does play a part in gas milage so you are on the right track! The Mazda RX8 weighs between 3,064 to 3,111 lbs.
The lighter the car, the better the gas mileage, right? Well, sometimes.
While the RX8 is on the smaller side, the gas mileage is not very impressive:
  • Automatic: 16 miles per gallon in the city and 23 mpg on the highway
  • Manual: 16 miles per gallon in the city and 22 mpg on the highway
Here are some small car alternatives with better miles per gallon (mgp):
  • Nissan Versa: 32 mpg city and 40 mpg highway
  • Honda Civic: 30 mpg city and 33 mpg highway
  • Kia Rio: 33 mpg city and 41 mpg highway
