When new 38-41 mpg. Then did the speedometer correction. Now 34-38 average. Cruising speed with or without SO directly proportional to the throttle grip, and inversely related to the outdoor temperature is a factor! Try to keep rev's about 2200-3000 myself. What rev's do u all shoot for?

ok, was thrown out in general! pgreen-there are a few aftermarket interface boards to correct the speedometer inaccuracy at around $100 price range. Try a search on speedometer. I am in NJ, was trying to determine if it is better to lug around 2000 rpm, or stay around 3000 rpm for better milage. Of course the 3000 rpm has faster response.
