Mileage linked to temperature?
I've noticed a drop in my fuel economy lately (according to the readout on the bike's display).
I had been getting a pretty steady 51mpg since I bought the bike in April.
I've noticed in the last few weeks that my mileage readout has steadily dropped - it's currently at 47mpg. The trip meter has over 3000 miles on it, so if the 47mpg is the average over all those miles, my mileage lately has been REALLY bad.
I commute and the temps have been dropping. On longer rides - or commutes colder than about 40deg F - I'm running Gerbings gloves. I don't have a heat troller, so when they're on, they're running flat out.
Is this expected behavior?
Does fuel economy track with air temp? Or could the electrical draw of the gloves account for 2mpg or more?
