    US Diesel's big splash introduction

    I get 42 (US) on long journeys at a steady 70mph and 37 with only short journeys. If I reset the average mpg while cruising at 70mph then stays around 48 if there are no really steep inclines. Mine is the 148bhp 2013 UK diesel.

    What have you done to your CX-5 today?

    Got my diesel tuning box fitted today. Drove pretty normally for the 20 mile drive home to make sure the engine still acted normally in slower traffic situations. Put my foot down in 6th on the open road for a bit and the difference is remarkable. Very pleased so far. Next time I fill up, I'll...

    What have you done to your CX-5 today?

    Chip. I don't want to lose a tune through dealer servicing. I sense it's much easier to achieve a reasonable result with diesels and chips.

    Will a dealer service overwrite an ecu remap?

    I'm considering a diesel remap for my 2013. When I've taken the car in for a service with a mazda dealer, invariably, one of the functions performed is, "ECU/software updates" If there was a new update from mazda, would that erase any ecu remap I'd received from a tuner?

    2017 CX-5 Seating position / posture

    I adjust seat height so my eyes are in the top half of the screen and, distance from pedals, so that my feet rest easy on the pedals and I can lift my foot between accelerator and brake without banging my knee on the steering wheel. Then I adjust the seat angle so my hands can reach all of the...

    Interesting diesel regen observation

    Yesterday I did 400 miles, mostly at 60-75mph,in my 150bhp UK diesel. At the start of the trip I reset the average fuel consumption. Not sure why, but I check it quite frequently. Around the 50 mile mark, I was averaging 51mpg. Shortly after it plummeted to 45 and I realised it was in a DPF...

    You have an awesome car, but if you're going to 'use' it on the public road, drifting, etc, you are an asshole. Most of the time I have my 2 year old daughter in the back of my car and encountering you 'drifting' on the road would not be my idea of fun. Go to a track.
