City MPG on the Wee?

What kind of mileage do you get on your Wee in stop and go traffic? Top speed of about 45 or 50 broken up by periods of stop and go traffic? My commute to work is only about twelve miles with a lot of stop and go and traffic lights. I'm seriously contemplating switching to the Wee. Thanks!

I live in the city and commute out. I've gotten a tank as low as 44 but it's usually high 40's in pure city riding.

On mine(k5) throttle inputs don't seem to hurt milage as pure speed. I get high 40's in town or back roads and mid to low 40 forties on the slab (depening if the side cases are on).

650...Anything more than a handfull is wasted

I typically see 49MPG, though I don't think that I've had a tank yet that did not include a bit of highway. Pure highway I often see 52.

K6 Wee, '97 Miata (track toy), '03 TDI Jetta (economy champ when 2-up or greater).

I just checked mine and it's 52 MPG's. I have been heavy on the throttle lately. It is typically 54 MPG's.

Stromerman, are you at a higher elevation? Your city numbers are like others highway numbers and you say you're heavy on the throttle.
