More driving and more calculations.

Mixed driving (50% town. 50% motorway) gives results in around 36-37mpg (brink to bring calculations)
Motorway driving results in 41-42mpg

Tip computer always gives a difference of around +2mpg comparing to bring to brink calculations.

I haven’t posted for quite a while as I am so pleased with ‘Bussy’ a 2 WD Auto CX5, with Diesel engine, as it is the first auto we have had I am mightily impressed with the fuel consumption in the 15000+ miles she has done .
Average is 52 mpg with occasional foray into the low 60’s on long runs, this I put down to years of driving experience and a multitude of courses I made during my professional career which further assisted this end.
I do not try the manufacturers 0-60 times when accelerating nor do I carry out ‘traffic light’ Grand Prix stop starts, I occasionally give her nibs a full boost but only when warmed up fully and just enough to clear her throat.
Many who post on here need to look at their driving habits and re-adjust them, seen too many failed F1 stars behind the wheel on the roads who drive fast and use fuel faster.
Anyone who’d like to take me up on the point, please feel free to do so.
Happy driving.

Around town driving I'm averaging 36mpg but's getting better every time I fill up.

I have noticed 40mph in 4th the average real time mpg reading is in the high 50's.

Update. While on along run on single carriageway A & B roads I zeroed the trip and managed 45mpg.  Not too shabby

I have reported several times already on my terrible fuel consumption.
My mileage is very low which obviously doesn't help.

I recently met a lady with a 2018 CX5 with as near as possible the same spec as mine. Sport AWD diesel.
Her average over 33,000 miles was 48.5.
Mine over 16,000 miles is 36.1.indicated (actual 35.6)

This is mostly driving on the same roads so should be somewhere near the same.
I have checked many times and on a flat road at 40 mph i can get 50-60 mpg but no more. The slightest hill drops into the 20s.

Incidentally the original Toyo tyres started cracking up after 5 years so had to be replaced.

48mpg is good for an AWD 2.2.  Mazda only claim low 40's for an all AWD 2.2 and it's computer predicted not real world figures so it will be less.  They claim 41mpg urban for my 2.0L 2WD on average around town I get 38ish on a run I can manage 45.  I agree when a hill appears the mpg goes through the floor I find the gearing slightly high so it kills my average mpg.  I also find the radar doesn't help.
