Just got back from another great run to Starbucks and the grocery- three miles home with a half gallon of ice cream in the Florida heat- NO PROBLEM! This thing rolls and rolls- I shut the motor off two blocks from where I know I have to stop, and it just keeps rolling. From 25 or 30 it coasts FOREVER unless I'm against a strong wind. As far as the weight and the roll, even against other small motors- I'm blowing eveything else away in terms of MPG. Probably get the six miles there and back on about a quarter's worth of gas... OR LESS!
