    Wow at the gas mileage.

    I went on a trip today with a group of 14 and had a blast. We got to see some nice views of the coastline and enjoy a beautiful day.

    I logged 194.6 miles on 3.2 gallons of gas. That's like 60 mpg.

    I'd been told my bike was capable of it, but it was a shock to actually see it. We held it between 60 and 65 most of the way, not a lot in the way of stop and go driving, so I'm sure that helped.

    I have had a significant improvement in my C50 mileage. Only thing I can think of that is different is that I have debaffled. On 4 tanks of gas now I am routinely getting 49 or 50 mpg.... used to be in the 44-45 range. Totally unexpected...
    Ride long and prosper !

    What I'm also finding just crazy is the variance in MPG I get depending on where I fill up at. My favorite spot, where I filled up yesterday before the ride, I get a minimum of 52 MPG. The only other place I get gas at, and this is only out of necessity, only gets me about 45 MPG. I never really noticed this driving my truck, but I guess the quality of gas is the difference.

    Just got back from a 4,000 mile trip to Colorado and back and averaged about 52mpg and got a high of 60mpg in a loop between Montrose and Telluride, Co. lots of hills and a fair amount of coasting.

    I wonder if ethanol is the difference?

    That must be it. I'd read that somewhere now that you mention it. This gas station must have a lower % mixture.
