Last Sunday was a nice day, so I took a trip down to Seattle on the scoot. I went downtown, cruised Alaskan Way by the waterfront, then headed out to Akai Beach and ate lunch at the Blue Moon Burger, and did some people watching. On the way back to Monroe, I saw somebody's driveshaft in the driveway entrance of a shopping center. Nobody seemed to claim it. That was weird. The new LED headlight and LED running lights worked great. No collisions. And the good news is, I passed the 620 mile mark at Akai Beach, and I got 106 mpg! Yea!

Sounds like you had a fun day. You got 106 mpg? I'm lucky to get 80 mpg on my 150. Guess FI does help mpg.

I've gotten 105 MPG over a five-tank average on the 170i as well. The scoot' has 14,500 miles now and running like new.

Pretty cool to do the MPG Ton on a scoot that makes good power.

I think the FI is the key to the mileage. The correct mixture at all throttle angles and RPM's makes good power and mileage.

My Buddy 125's mileage can go from less than 70 mpg up to over 120 mpg(with the stock jetting.)

On long trips were I am going WOT almost the entire time I barely get 70 mpg. On the other hand if I never went over 40 mph and went easy on the gas I was easily getting 120 mpg(I might even have gotten around 130 mpg on one tank.) Overall doing my normal riding I get ~80-85 mpg(#92 main jet, I still need to calculate my mileage with a #95 main jet.)


Also, these mpg numbers are real world mpg. I have corrected for the inaccuracy in my odometer, ~11%.

Kinda hard to calculate the mileage on my Buddy 150 since I regularly top it off from a gas can. I can estimate around 80 MPG providing I am not at WOT. One long 154 mile round trip on the interstates at WOT yielded way less than 80 MPG. Estimated around 50 MPG.
