Update on the R12ST

The ST clicked over 7000 miles yesterday. I had been getting 40-42 mpg, but since my 6000 mile service, I've been seeing slightly better fuel efficiency. It's now easily making it to 200 miles before hitting the one gallon reserve. I calculated yesterday that I'm now getting 45 mpg.

It's still using a quart of oil every 1000 miles. With the mpg improving as it continues to break in, I'm hoping the oil consumption will taper off. It's going to be a pain to haul along 3 or 4 bottles of oil on my upcoming trip to West Virginia for the national meet.
