We've had our 2014 Mazda CX-5 less than two weeks, so we've only managed 700 miles so far. No MPG conclusions can be drawn just yet.

    Why not just exclude the track test fill up altogether instead of waiting weeks/months for it to shake out?

    Good point, but I need to leave it in for tracking purposes of miles driven and gallons purchased. And it's almost never an issue because even the first full month is enough to dilute the effects down to the 0.1 mpg level we report. The only reason I brought it up here is because this car hasn't even been here two weeks. I could have skipped the February report altogether because of that, but I didn't. By next month the effects of not excluding it outright will already be nil. But the "worst mpg" that would inevitably result from track testing would be permanent for the entire 12 months, and that's not fair to the car or to the readers.

    Gotta say, Soul Red is an enormous improvement over Velocity Red. What a great color.
