I will say that my mileage does drop dramatically if I stay above 90mph on the Scarabeo or BV 500s as I did crossing Nevada and North Dakota but a more sensible 70 gets me 62-64 mpg.

My son gets 95-100 with our Buddy 125 in town. If you aren't riding WOT and aggressive take-off you should be getting good gas mileage on most scoots.
Agreed. My scarabeo 200 gets 68mpg with an average commute of 50-65mph..and I'm not easy on the throttle at all
