Pretty much P&G again, it comes naturally when going slower.||82.86|

M3, M35, a slow ride to Bogacs, then back (Pilis mountain roads included).||72.25|

||0||1/3 E85 experiment. Runs bad... and the average would have been better with normal gas...||75.94|
||0||Long trip with freeway 2-up, luggage - this time I really went up to the legal 130. We also got rain and the air was colder too. No wonder this tank is so bad, still I'm not happy with it at all...
Had a P&G commute after it, but did not help enough.||67.86|
||0||Long distance ride with freeways, 2-up and luggage, used 110 and 130 stages and it still took almost 4 hours :-/
Shorter ones and the city of Debrecen in rain.
Weather was colder (~10C) and still windy.||70.12|

Trip back from Plad?ny, and a Budapest visit with getting a new belt...||72.11|
||0||Totally mixed 2-up rides through 4/M35/35/backroads and city riding in Debrecen. Ranging from very short (<10km) to very long (>200km) trips. Much 90+, 110 and 130 where approppriate. Losing speed mostly by coasting.||73.89|

2-up back from Sakuracon; 1-up to work;
2-up to Budapest
More FAS but next to no P&G||79.95|
||0||A bit longer rides and drier weather.
~60km is typical beside a few 30km ones; 1-up and 2-up mixed.||79.84|

||0||My new commute (2*25km), getting out of winter.
Mostly 1-up, few 2-up
Radiator cover is still on.
Much fewer P&G than last year (just taking advantage of delicious downhills).||76.35|
||0||Worst of the year, probably. Winter, sometimes under zero. Mostly 25-30km trips, some 2-up too.||70.47|
||0||Winter, usually 2-up rides, often wet road. Much less P&G, but possibly never exceeded 100km/h (80 is _much_ more typical). Mostly twisty roads and villages and some in-city. Professional plastic water cooler cover installed :)||71.18|
||0||Closer to freezepoint by the minute (hit zero once) - may need a larger piece of radiator cover, but I don't plan on riding under 0C. Struggling to keep her under 3l/100km...||78.67|
||0||Normal commute + tire change.
Weather is a bit warmer, 8C is typical.||81.05|
||0||Weather is colder again, 5C and under are typical temps. Had a 2*100km 2-up ride to Kisl?ng, with higher speeds (steady 110-120 on the freeway) and much less P&G. Another one with 30 in the city and up to 110 between Z?moly and Szfv.||76.23|
||0||Somewhat warmer and pretty dry weather. ~100km 2-up, the rest is normal commute. 70-90/100 P&G with some 120-130 peaks. Back to the original route: I don't want to FAS with cold engine now, and it's shorter and steeper. I regularly use heated gloves now.||85.93|
||0||Normal commute and ~3*70-80km 2-up trips. Weather became rainy and much colder, temps around 5C are normal. Several kms of lane splitting in 1st gear @ Budapest included.||77.40|

||0||New, somewhat longer route to prolong first FAS - it's better in absolute terms, not just at the average. At least at dawn, without traffic.
Less high-speed pulses (~120km/h max at that), mostly 70-90 or 70-100, took advantage of a few more highway FAS opportunities.
Filled with carrera 100 (I don't think it matters much).||98.94|
||0||22km city practicing, 400+km freeway commuting. Took an unorthodox approach on P&G - no strict 70/90 (though the majority is 70/90), many pulses went over 100, a few even reached 130.||91.22|
||0||Guga-B?rzs?ny trip, much (40+%) Budapest 1-up and 2-up - practicing, visiting a party, very mixed environment: from empty city at night to stop&crawl and lane splitting...
Pulse&Glide has become my natural driving style, I would have never thought...||81.67|
||0||~70km practicing around town, trip to the largest viaduct of Hungary and a few villages with strange names :D
FE is not totally exact, tripmeter reset itself at the middle of this tank (Google maps helped to recover the lost data) :-/||84.73|
||0||2 trips to V?c and the Bakony; 2 times through Budapest, including some stop&crawl; acting as an instructor in 30km/h zone, mostly in 1st/2nd gear.||78.07|
||0||300km of commute *miling, then a tour on mountain roads of Pilis. I'm afraid I can't leave hypermiling at home anymore...||93.07|
||0||2-up trip to Ajkarendek; some strong headwind, 30+km city ride to the mechanic because of clutch problems... need to work more on timing unknown lights...||77.26|
||0||Basically all of the 526.9km (327.4 miles) was hypermiling. Cruising speed was usually ~45-50mph. Backroads and deserted superslabs are good and safe this way, but freeway with traffic is a bit of strain on the nerves... Contains one experiment with EOCing a 2km+ long downhill stage, can't be repeated too often, I think. More and more frequent P&G downhills.||89.45|
||0||Most of it is a trip to Hegyestu"+Tihany. Techniques: all of the above, except that I was seldom hiding behind the windscreen. Many twisty roads, and a little bit of gravel road in a forest.||85.14|
||0||Personal best so far. (Soft-)Neutral coasting seems real good... I'm curious how much it wears the clutch plates. On my last trip I totally cramped myself on this otherwise comfortable bike to reduce air drag, my neck and back are a bit stiff after one hour... maybe I've gone too far? Usual speed is around 80km/h now (~50mph), I can't get much slower in 5th gear. It mightily reduces room for target driving...||85.75|
||0||Usual commuting + some light touring, <10% real city ride, little stop&crawl.
Experimenting with neutral coasting, hill assisted pulse&glide. Feels a failure with both bikes, air drag slows them down very quickly at highway speeds. Gliding down on hills at city speeds in neutral feels very OK though.
Contains some safe distance drafting too. Not THAT good if I'd like to break my personal record, I can go slower (and with less throttle) without drafting...||82.79|
||0||Normal commuting plus touring totally without mountains... includes some speeding too :-/||71.93|
||0||Has ~60km practicing at most ~20mph, in 1st/2nd gear||66.26|
||0||2-up (pretty hectic) freeway ride in the pouring rain and a long, casual tour||69.51|
||0||Driving really shamelessly :D||82.99|
||0||No commuting this time, just a casual ride to Austria.||76.96|
||0||I continued to hone my ecomiling skills (let Teresa slow down uphills), plus her fixed rear brake, somewhat overinflated tires (I got her back from the mechanic this way and had no problems so let them like this), replaced valve shims and spark plug started to show their effect... which one counts the most, I really don't know.
First break of 80mpg line.||80.88|
||0||Some faster 2-some ride on freeway then my usual commuting.||70.43|
||0||First trip after the "30k service" - passenger and luggage, bad city traffic, mountain roads, dirt roads and obscenely bad pavement between villages forcing me to go really slow...||65.25|
||0||Experiment: how much does she drink at 'freeway speeds' - once I even tried her top speed @ 109mph indicated...||57.73|
||0||Spring began, commuting and a tour with passenger, 70mph max on the looong ringroad||70.66|
||0||Still winter, but I could go on a longer ride too...||67.09|
||0||Winter combined with some city rides was really bad for Teresa's fuel economy. Gas was the cheapest that time, though...||60.17|
||0||This was the 2nd time I dried up the tank: fuel level light died and winter hit, ruining my average...||65.93|
||0||I was happy to break the 3.0l/100km line!||78.62|
||0||Whole day ride with other bikers, they rode like crazy in my beginner eyes... sometimes I was afraid... yet the average is not that bad. Actually, next day I was riding alone with very calm 'tempomat hand' at 90km/h - that was the legal speed there, after all...||71.36|
||0||Gradually I was getting used to Teresa...||78.04|
||0||The usual freeway ride [email protected] and some city traffic||72.87|
||0||...and still the effect of pattern breakage. Actually, the last stage's average was worse... but on the long run it'll give a correct average, I suppose...||55.19|
||0||I had to combine a few entries, my log is a mess here (I ran out of fuel once and it broke the pattern...)
But maybe the first time I dared to slow down to 50mph on a freeway - well, it's much easier at dawn ;)||74.36|
||0||My first trip ever inside a big city - traffic jams whole day, Budapest at its worst on a very hot day... I was close to throwing up because of the exhaust gases...||37.02|
||0||Mostly freeway @~60mph, for one time I tried how does it feel to ride @~85mph. It was scary for the first time :D||66.34|
||0||My very first few trips - light touring, mostly off-city; highway and villages, freeway at ~60mph.
Also the first entry here - I hope it will work out as intended...||72.91|
