    I have gotten from 80 something to 200 mpg, depends on how/where I ride.

    It varies. I've got 300 miles on mine and I've just started on my 4th jug of gas/oil mix. so maybe 90 MPG, but that would include the crappy economy it was getting while I ran 16:1 at the first.

    Couple of weeks ago (the days are getting shorter so most my riding is on weekends now) I filled it up, went for a 25 mile ride, then refilled it with a measure when I got back Just about 750 ML for the 25 miles. This works out to 126.5 MPG.

    Like Miles would say, "I'll Allow It!"

    I had a spastic odometer for a while, but I would estimate I am getting about 120 - 130 mpg with a 48 cc 2-stroke in a town where there is very little by way of hills.

    I do get around 150 mpg if I cap the speed at 20 mph. Riding 25mph drops mpg to 100 or so. These numbers are based on my 50 mile round trip commute to work.

    Im getting around 180mpg or more with my 48cc 2-stroke.
    On mainly flat ground and short trips to the store.

    depends on your gearing as well
    when I ran 2stroke with a 50 tooth sprocket my mileage was 80mpg,
    changing to a 40 bumped me to 120...same riding style (speed)
    all pulling the trailer with a 66 from livefast on my Jag

    my falcon gets about 90-100 MPG, and i'm always at about 3/4 to full throttle. my rear mount with a 50cc and modded jet on the carb will burn through its 1.5L tank in less than 30 minutes of riding,which i have no idea what mpg that would come out to. :D

    edge, a standard happytime kit holds just about as much. i know that weedeater is burning alot more fuel just by the time estimate you gave me lol

    then again, performance has to have a tradeoff.... stupid happytime.

    You can glue a tab onto the throttle lever that only allows you to turn it 1/2 way!! rotfl

    As Venice Boy was "hinting at" (the same way an elephant tiptoes ;)), the more throttle you use, the more fuel you use. It's as simple as that.

    I have a GX50 with the 1.3 ltr tank on it and I can go 4 round trips of 8 miles before theres less than 1/4 in of gas left in the tank. So theres 3.7 litres to a gallon........120 mpg approximately.
