    Does the mileage improve at some point with break-in? I've only got 4000 miles on it so far. I am getting 46-48 commuting so it's about 3 miles city and 14-15 miles highway (avg speed 60-80 mph on the highway portion).

    I don't know, mine is now 5200+ miles but I bought it with 3000 miles. Always got 55.

    The 700 "drinks" more on the highway, I think that's why you're about 46-48. You can see it with the onboard computer.

    Thanks. I figured it was either me, the route I take to work or the ECU needed a tweak or two. I'll take it out on mixed terrain once it warms up a bit and see if I get more reasonable mileage (not that I am complaining about high 40s mind you).
