I wound up with 34.1 on the 4th tank. It's a mixed bag about 60/40% of highway/city

My commute is 10 miles one way, about 7 highway at 55 MPH and the rest is in town.

Not too bad at all! What's your driving style like? and anything else that would factor into getting the MPG you did?

I'm 46 years old, so I'm definitely not hot rodding it, and it wouldn't hot rod even if you tried. That's just regular driving with 5 speed.

I will say that as the little engine breaks in it seems to have a bit more power. Sitting at 1500 miles now and

sounds about typical for any new engine, i know some engines take a while to break in to a point they reach the gas mileage noted on paper and power levels it's suppose to be at.

keep us posted

I just got mine today and put about 120 miles on it, engine smells pretty hot. Can't wait to see what I average for the first tank?
