Congrats!

I think you will like having something that's better built and more reliable.

I rode a Honda 250 enduro on the street, back in the day. So far back that nobody ever even considered mileage - because gas was under a dollar a gallon!

There are a couple scooter sites (mostly Chinese oriented, but not exclusively) that you could check into. There are some guys there that know the Chinese scoots inside and out pretty much.

My TaoTao Evo150 also got 66MPG, and I wasn't happy about it.
It's because the thing is geared to rev higher, to get a snappier performance out of it.
If you change the variator weights, you can actually make it rev slower, and thus, have a better range on the scooter; but you'll also lose some acceleration torque.

A variator is not a very efficient thing. Those 150cc's are great engines to pair with a manual geared transmission, and they could get 100MPG easily.
