    I also saw no need for an auto tranny on a motorcycle, altho I’m not manual shift crazy. After re-gearing my Suzuki up 15%, I still most often, turned my manual tranny into half an auto tranny, by shifting from 1st to 3rd to 6th gear.

    I may still get that 55 mpg tank this summer. I think I'm about 350 miles into this tank and if I recall correctly the Ultra Gauge when I last parked it was showing over 56.5 mpg. This is not a normal tank. I've done a lot more light traffic 4 lane driving on this tank and have driven the worst sections that I usually travel less. There has also been lots of 40 mph driving on this tank. By the end of the weekend I'll probably be about 400 miles into this tank and since they can start selling winter blend as early as 9/15 I may go ahead a fill up Sunday afternoon so I'm sure to get at least one more tank of the good stuff this year.

    Today we made a trip to a neighboring town just across the TN state line to pick up my wife's new glasses. Gas was $ .18 a gallon cheaper at their Walmart than it is at the one here in our hometown so I filled the tank to be sure I got at least one more full tank of summer blend this year. The car had been 395.1 miles and took 7.099 gallons for 55.656 mpg. This is officially my best tank ever in any car I've owned since buying my first car in 1977. I don't expect to break this record for quite awhile if ever. Lots of this tank was low traffic volume 4 lane driving, lots of 40 mph driving and extremely little a/c use.

    Probably a good thing I filled up yesterday when I did. Right after I filled up yesterday it started raining and rained the approximately 30 miles home, it was raining this morning and the temperature is several degrees cooler than we've been seeing. Since I filled up yesterday the Ultra Gauge is reporting 54.8 mpg but, usually it's about 1 mpg optimistic.

    I’ll take extra gas cans with me when I travel to areas with lesser gas prices than my area(which is almost anywhere). I’ll come home, fill all our cars with cheaper gas & we won’t need gas for a long time. The best deals I’ve gotten was at the “price war” town, getting gas for half-price of our local gas prices(55 gallons over the duration of the gas war).

    All the other stations were within $ .02 of what it costs in my hometown but, for some reason Walmart had theirs $ .18 a gallon cheaper. Most of the time the gas here in my hometown is the cheapest in the area, at least within 40-50 miles in each direction.

    Filled up again today. 543 miles, 9.977 gallons, 54.425 mpg. 14,475.9 miles tracked, 297.841 gallons used, overall average 48.603 mpg. I've saved 127.921 gallons over epa combined rating or 4349.3 free miles. The weather had cooled down on this tank by probably an average of 10-15*. I assume the gas I got today was winter blend so I'm expecting another mileage hit on the next fill up. My current mpg is dropping but, my overall average is still on it's way up. This made 9 consecutive fill ups at 50+ mpg.
