Ok finally got to take the girl out for a long ride. At 50+ miles I filled up and checked mpg. Something wrong with math. Showed 4mpg. So took another 50+ ride and refilled. Now 11mpg. There was a problem with the brakes tightening up but was wondering am I close to average on mpg. Starts beautifully and idles a 800 nicely. Found what I feel is the sweet spot but maybe I'm off on something.
How did you end up with 3200 lbs curb wt on a 2A? Seems WAY on the heavy side..
My 2A will run a consistent 20-22 mpg at 45 mph with OD, pushing it to 50 mph and it drops off to 16-20 mpg. Same situation without OD, 14-16 at 40-45 mph, drops off to 10-12 if pushing beyond 45 mph. This is on mn. roads.
Forgive your enemy, but remember the bastards name. (Scottish proverb)
Bad roads lead to great stories! 😉 I Recomend Turkey Spam 😁

m38mike: Got the T90C ready to go back into Blue Mule. And see why the OD won't shift. Then check all sensors for EFI. I think I'll need two cups of coffee right away. And maybe a Lee-meister SPAM sandwich!

m38mike: I'll take a cup. Clear warm and dry for the next week here. Think we'll go canoeing at Turquoise Lake near Leadville today. Sunny and 70's so the electric canoe should work great. Thanks Oilly.
