That's more or less what happened. It was 12-13mpg, never coaxed more than 15 mpg out of it, and it never delivered the power or torque I wanted to feel. That was at the height of our fuel prices, too. It also was a way better ride for passengers than for front seat riders, who were basically planted on top of the front axle line.
