MPG is weird sometimes. I remember years ago in SCCA club doing mileage runs for fun with that group. My Ford truck keeps track of engine hours moving and at idle on the oil meter puter. Even though we live in a very rural area with zero red lights and not one stop sign for first 25 miles away from us westward, and most always truck travel is on hwys not urban the idle hours run right on 10% of total engine hours. A scoot is no different as the road & load dictates engine operation. Point is that stops and redlights really do add up overall, PTW's included. "Perhaps the Blonde" is lighter too? In racing & mpg weight really matters?
