Only used one tankful but from brim to brim I covered 270km and used 8.3l of fuel.
By my calcs that is 169miles on 1.82 gals which is 93mpg.
Some of that was two up over fell roads (Buttertubs and Ingleton to Hawes as well as Barbon Dale to Ribble Head) so not just pootling around.
Having never ridden a scooter of any description before, I am suitably impressed.
My wife is less impressed by the ride on the back! She prefers the NTV for comfort and security.
By the way, my cruising speed is in the region of 65 to 70 mph but I don't wring its neck for maximum acceleration.
Long may it continue.

Pillions rarely like the back of scooters. Too high, too wide, too close etc.
