Correction: 49 mpg last fill

I just did the odometer correction on my last fill, adjusting distance to take into account the bigger rear wheels (calibrated against GPS & Google Maps). And the corrected number is:

49.9 MPG US = 4.7 L/100 km

Soooo close. Should have done more mods!

Never have I been so excited to almost get 50 MPG. In the Firefly, getting 50 mpg would indicate a major mechanical problem, or a boat anchor tied to rear bumper, or towing a camper trailer...
