Opening the Gas Cap in your New Mazda

There’s a lot to learn when you buy a new vehicle. You’ve gotta know where the parking brake is, where the wiper controls are, how to navigate your navigation system. It’s easy to get overwhelmed with the many buttons and levers packed into new cars.

Which usually happens some time between figuring out which side of the vehicle the gas cap is on and which type of fuel to put in.

Worry not! Here at Hall Mazda near Milwaukee, we’re Mazda experts. We’ll show you how to open the gas cap in a Mazda. Read the rest of this entry »

We have definitive performance specs in real world conditions. Spoiler alert: the SKYACTIV-X engine is ridiculously efficient.
