None of the links you posted in #201 mentions anything about the fuel economy other than the one that takes you to the first page of the thread that mentions an average of 107 mpg and a high of 124. And one that shows a photo where you have written 127 on the fender.
Re the Green Grand Prix:
I am not fabricating any scenario about your car specifically. Just trying to get you to realize that ALL of the competitors achieve artificially high results that are not repeatable in the real world that an honest and continuous fuel log would show. I have seen stock Insights post 130 mpg at the GGP in a car that could never break 75 mpg in a real day to day highway commute. Due among other things to advanced driving technique that is impractical to use on the highway such as EOC and the hilly nature of the track which favors it. And other factors such as the inevitable fill errors that come from such small quantities of use that would get averaged out if multiple back to back tanks were logged. I have achieved 130 mpgUS at the GGP on my CBR250R two consecutive years but don't go around telling people it is a 130 mpg bike because my log shows that it only gets 95. And most "normal riders" on Fuelly get 70.
If you want us to know what the car really gets you should start a fuel log.
