The Worst! Absolute Worst!

The worst fuel efficiency ever. Ever! Taking it to the dealer to see if it's leaking gas or if the gauge is f'd! lol

EDIT: Dealer gave it to us with a full tank and the computer estimated range was 600kms and change. My 83 Full Size Bronco had better mileage! lol

Well apparently I'm getting 15.6MPG or 6.6KM/L. The service Tech told me it's probably just breaking in. Run another tank and see the new mileage. *eyeroll*

I find my fuel efficiency to be very good.

You don't state if this is city driving only or mixed? I get 6.8Lper100km in the city and 5.5 on the highway at 100 kph. Now have 3200 km on the odometer. I think it's really good on fuel myself, very happy. I've got a 2017 with the 6 speed automatic and using the factory 16 inch friction winter tires.

In my experience these little cars need some time to "break-in". Seems to me ours took about 3000 miles. But now it gets 30-34 MPG on highway, and mid to high 20's around town. Not bad for AWD and 17 inch tires. My daughter has a FWD CX3 car with 17 inch wheels and hers does 2 MPG better.

OP: Where are You loacted and which CX-3 model is it?
Mine is a 120hp FWD model with automatic transmission and my average is 6.29 l/100 km (37.41 mpg US) over 76,500 km.
As some has mentioned already, it very much depends on Your style of driving and if it's mainly city og highway driving.

And by the way my range usually says between 650-750 km on a full tank (depending on my driving).

Its due to the break in, I have a brand new 2018 GT model with 850KM on the odometer. Did my second fill up on Friday. I am using the fuelly app and says I'm averaging 8.3L per 100km. Now this is mostly 75% city driving and 25% hwy driving. I expect it to get better as the engine breaks in.

I’ve driven my GT AWD over 1200 miles (50/50, city and freeway) and don’t even get 20 mpg. Pathetic.
