    Left the tag and headed home. Stopped to take a pic as I was entering Woodruff, SC.

    Got back home and my 50 mile round trip somehow turned into a 100+ plus mile trip.:eek1

    Can't figure out how that happened.:evil

    I tried a couple of new things to try and get the fuel mileage up. I bought Ethanol Free fuel and eased waaaay up on the throttle.

    Last 2 tanks game me 79 and 78 mpg. This is about a 10 - 12 mpg improvement.:lol3

    The latest tank in regular gas so I will see how just the easy throttle effects the mileage when I fill up again.

    easy take off made a big difference for me, 80MPG+ was seen a few times if I limited my take off and maintained a motion. Keeping away from major throttle adjustments makes a big difference also.
    I am looking at loosing some of the weight, both me and the scooter :lol2
    want an exhaust that is not to loud but lighter and may remove the front guard. small things, maybe a small windshield type thing for air flow. Riding position and all the other small things can make a collective difference.

    full tug forum now! :lol3

    78 mpg on the latest tank of regular gas.

    I guess that means that throttle effects gas mileage more than Ethanol content in the gas.

    I took this pic last week. Just under 3k on the mileage. I know that is not really a lot but with a job, a wife, and 4 kids I don't get a lot of free time to ride.:cry
