With >100,000 miles ridden on motorcycles, I can say 144 mpg is indeed possible with a 50 cc. scooter. My mid-60s Honda Cub got 145 mpg. I owned a series of two-stroke cycles which were gas guzzlers compared to the four-stroke Honda. My 90 cc 1970 Suzuki TS-90 averaged 75 mpg, my '66 Suzuki T20 (250 cc.) X-6 Hustler got 55 mpg, and my 500 cc T500 Titan got 30 mpg. My '77 Suzuki GS-1000 (four-stroke) got 50 mpg. All were ridden WFO with no clue about hypermiling.
