    60s and partly cloudy here today. Thanks to that, and unusually little traffic behind, I coasted to a new record for coming home from a bike ride that started in the town called Six Mile. 81×0.955=~77 mpg.

    Well, 77MPG was my highest, from my 1980 450cc Suzuki. As Yogi would say, "Its deja vu, all over again".

    Coincidentally, that's about the same mpg from only ¼ the engine displacement.

    If I'd had more displacement, I wooda been dead. I loved my 1/4 displacement.... cause it couldn't quite kill me.

    Today , 25 deg F in Naperville and Wood Dale , 22 in Toronto
    A bit of a tailwind helped me. 35.1 miles , 57.8 MPG.
    Tank is at 310.2 miles , 251 remaining , 55.0 MPG.
    Odometer reads 100,027. Actually there is no comma on my odo display , that
    was my idea. :) It took 57 months to reach that number.

    That's a lot of miles, Edwin. My car is close behind, but it's taken 10 years to reach that number (7 of those in my care).

    34F and rain here.
    12.6 mpg in the big van.

    Solution to that problem is to have.... 2 or 3 vehicles. Have I solved everybody's problem? :confused:

    He's also getting close to catching up with my Prius, despite starting about 4 years behind.
