gas mileage update

With roughly 450 miles on the clock, running Castrol synthetic 2T, the 2004 Vento Zip R3i is getting 75 mpg. That's mostly ridden flat-out.

I haven't put gas in the Jeep in almost a month. Haven't put gas in the GS in almost 3 weeks.

I've saved about $60 in fuel over the past month with no compromises in capability, plus have done a LOT of joy-riding in the evenings on the scoot. I don't think I'd put more than $10 in the scoot's tank in a month but that could change--we're going to start taking longer trips, not just around-town jaunts.
