The article states it gets 72 mpg, but I am skeptical.

The second article below says it gets 53 mpg US. That's more realistic. If it does get that kind of mileage, I may have to look into getting a mazda.

Tom, I'm still interested in the Mazda 6 with its diesel, but this one seems like a pretty decent package too.
How's your Honda doing these days?

One more thing.
Those articles appear to be published in the UK.
If this is true, then those mileage figures could be based on the larger Imperial Gallon.
Using smaller US gallons, mileage per gallon would therefore be lower.

The Honda is still running fine so far. But I definitely want to get rid of it before the battery pack goes out again. I did find an article on Wikipedia saying the new 2.2 litre diesel gets 20% better mileage than the 2.2 MZD-CD, which averages 41 - 42 mpg US.
Assuming that's true, that makes the 56 mpg for mazda 3 doable.
