100+mpg should be easy, but acceleration and gradeability, or whatever it's called, will be lacking. I think investing in a 250cc motor and a taller sprocket at some point would be a better bet in terms of an acceptable trade-off between acceleration/climbing ability and mileage. I wouldn't be surprised if you could manage better mileage and acceleration w/ a larger engine and taller gearing.
