On my last full tank of gas (2017XT) I made 550 km (342 miles) which converts to 3.6 l per 100 km (65 miles per US gallon). Easy riding (this time) but still pretty amazing. On the half of the new fill up I'm at 3.4l/100km. Seems to me it is capable to do 600km on full tank if you take it very easy riding back roads.

Yes, it's amazing. I've been checking my mileage every time I gas up for years and I average 65 mpg US on my '09 Wee. I don't ride slower than anyone I ride with, maybe less aggressive acceleration, possibly. I think it's due more to where I ride - back road cruising at 4K RPM, no traffic or traffic lights, minimal fast (75+ MPH) highway riding. This combined that 87 octane is the recommended fuel, the Wee is a cheap date.

Are you using ethanol-free fuel? I've been in the break-in period for a month and getting around 45 mpg, on 87 ethanol-free. Ethanol-free is 30%+ more expensive so I may switch to E10 "normal" gasoline. That mpg is 90% stop-and-go suburban traffic driving.

I don't run ethanol free fuel. I think the 90% stop & go traffic is the difference.
