Aiming for 300 mpg on 50cc :)

Hello everyone,

I have a bit of free time coming up and am going on a 3 day ride and figured it would be a fun time to try some hypermiling on two wheels.

The scooter is a 49cc Honda Scooter, called the Giorcub and has a 4 speed manual transmission with chain drive in the back, kind of strange for a scooter. It makes just 3.75 horsepower and tops out at 62 kph (40 mph). It also takes 28 seconds to get there.

Current average is about 160 mpg US with a lot of start stop and 5-6k rpm shifts. I'm thinking I can do better, hoping to top 300 and still have a streetable scooter.

I'll be posting progress and modifications up until the day of the ride comes.
