On my trip to Nebraska and back (2000miles) I am happy to say that the MPG's were above what I expected. I was hoping for ~35 mpg ave for the whole trip and returned 37.4. I set the cruise at 4 over for the most part which put us at cruising speeds of 74-79mph. My best tank of fuel yielded 41.2 through Kansas in the mid afternoon running 91 octane at speeds of 70+. We hit a nasty head wind as a low pressure front descended on us and dropped our MGP to mid 30's. I run atleast 89 octane because I feel it makes a difference in smoothness of operation for the moving bits. On a side note a fully built Yamaha Banshee 350 2 stroke is impending death if you dont respect it 110%.
