117 mpg!

On Saturday I decided to find out how long it would take me to get from home to Lake Calhoun, using only back streets since I was riding Porter (the scooter). It took about 54 minutes to get to the Caribou on Excelsior - not bad, as I had given myself an hour to get there. On the way back, Porter started to sputter and lose speed...time to switch over to the Reserve tank and find the nearest gas station!

After filling up with 3/4 gallon of premium petrol (a whopping $2.76) I calculated the gas mileage - and was quite pleased at the 117.33 mpg I received! That definitely makes the scooter a fun weekend hobby. =)
