Andrew Bardwell, an independent automotive engineer, recently took the 2013 Mazda CX-5 for a trip from Hope, B.C., over the highest point in the Rockies, down to Edmonton to see how much gas mileage the car would get.

The CX-5 is equipped with Mazda's new SkyActiv technology, a system that creates better fuel efficiency by making use of the 70% of gasoline in normal engines that is typically thrown away.
