Completely agree. When riding the Stelvio, I approach it with the thought that it's a two wheel Jeep and not a 200 pound dirt bike. My technique with it off road is slow and steady. It has kept me...

Interesting. I'm thinking of picking up a Gear Up for my "winter car". I figured they didn't get great mileage, but 19 mpg is nutty. My 3/4 ton diesel pick up does better than that. :rofl

Go here, go to Grisology and look for the thread on non Griso maps. Ping Mark aka beetle and he'll fling you the 2 sensor Stelvio map which I hear good things about.

Those are pretty odd fuel figures.

I get 42 mpg easy with loaded saddlebags at 65-70 mph.

33 would make me nervous that it was running overly rich. I get that in the city sitting in traffic.
