What is the Mazda 3 fuel tank capacity?

I’m comparing Mazda models to figure out which one is right for my family. I want a car that has a large fuel capacity since I hate fueling up. What is the Mazda 3 fuel tank capacity?

Great question! The Mazda 3’s fuel capacity is between 48 and 55 liters (around 14 gallons), depending on which model you have.
Fueling up is everyone’s least favorite chore. So, getting a vehicle with a large fuel tank capacity is a great way to reduce how often you have to stop at the gas station.
Your Mazda 3’s fuel capacity will depend on the specifics of the model. For instance, a 2009 Mazda manual has a 55-liter fuel capacity, whereas a 2019 Mazda automatic has a 48-liter (11 gallons) capacity. Make sure you’re always getting the
right kind of fuel
Generally, Mazdas have a similar fuel capacity to other cars in its class.
If you want a much bigger fuel capacity, you’ll have to upgrade to an SUV—but you’ll sacrifice fuel efficiency. The Mazda CX-5’s tank can hold 58 liters but only gets 100 km per 9 liters. Try telling your car salesman that you’re interested in preventing trips to the gas station.
