48 MPG during Break-In

I just filled up yesterday for the second time since I bought my 2010 V.

2.74 gallons - 132 miles = 48 MPG!

And this is varied driving conditions, not straight line highway riding. I am impressed!

I had >50 at first, but have been down to about 45 the last two tanks with my 09. I keep the RPMs pretty low, so I don't really know why it went down so much.

you're right Naz, it is Gem...

I'm at my second tank, started to flash at 194 miles (was experimenting so I drove for another 2 miles to gas up) so I filled up with 4.1 So give or take I would say 50mpg .......beautiful.

I've been combining my riding highway/street at no more than 5000 revs.

I'm on my 3rd tank on my new '09. First tank was awful, not sure why but it was about 35 mpg. The 2nd tank was a little more like it, right at 50 mpg.

On my first tank I got 46, second tank 57, and third tank 53. Have since averaged out to be around 49, after about 2K miles.
