What's your CX-50 MPG?

Hey guys,

I just wanted to get an idea of what your MPG was for your CX-50, whether Turbo or Non-Turbo. Here's some details about my vehicle so far:
  • Trim: Turbo Premium
  • Driving Style: Moderate/semi-aggressive
  • City/Highway (%): 70/30
  • EPA Estimated City/Highway: 23/29
  • MPG: 18-23 MPG
I have about 2,100 miles on my vehicle and I've noticed that I can't really get more than 255-270 miles upon each fill up and this is with the needle at the very last 10% on the fuel gauge itself with <10 miles remaining. Not sure what everyone else is getting but it's a little disappointing that the MPG is so low. It's definitely not a good car for a commute that's 70% (City) /30% (Highway) for sure and I suppose I could remediate that by driving slower but that would be defeating the purpose of getting a Turbo in the first place :)

For gasoline vehicles, the label shows City, Highway, and Combined MPG (miles per gallon) values. The Combined MPG value is the most prominent for the purpose of quick and easy comparison across vehicles. Combined fuel economy is a weighted average of City and Highway MPG values that is calculated by weighting the City value by 55% and the Highway value by 45%.

How many gallons does it take when you refuel? The capacity is 15.9 gallons
Are you resetting the mpg counter at each refill? you should

My fills ups have been around 13.5 - 14.0 gallons when I refill and I usually reset the MPG counter each time I fill up as it's tied to Trip A under the settings.

I have a 2.5 S Preferred Plus.

So far averaging 29.8 mpg with 90% highway. The best I've got on the highway has been 34.5 mpg driving between 65 and 75 mph.

Seems to be just a tad more fuel efficient than my 2021 CX-5.

One interesting thing though, it runs on the highway at about 300 RPMs lower than the CX-5.

I have 2600 miles and averaging 24.5 mph with the Turbo in mixed driving….60% town and 40% highway. I’m expecting (hoping) this will improve as the engine breaks in. My wife’s Audi 4cyl 2.0 turbo started out averaging high twenties but by about 15k miles it had improved to about 32 mpg average. Not too shabby. My GTI did something similar so I’m expecting the CX-50 to loosen up as well. I drive pretty gently really.
