I owned the same bike you've got. Fun & economical. Craig Vetter would approve (because it's not grossly overpowered - though he'd still call it overpowered!).

There's surely room for improvement in your "Forkus" fuel economy.

Welcome. My daughter always gets mpg in the mid 30's in her 2000 Focus by simply coasting down hills and whenever possible. Her car has no front bellypan or wheel dams, as are standard on newer models.

Check out this member's mileage:

I think the economy will go up with the next tank. The first take was without hyper milling. the next record i will be, also got a tuneup, new tires, cleaned out junk from the trunk. Lets hope it works
