    I'd expect a lot better than that from the two-pinter.

    When was the oil and filters last changed?

    It may also need an AFM if it's not pulling well. Those little engines should drive very well, so if it's being a dog there could be something amiss.

    i get around 550 miles to a tank from mine, and that's around £40-£45 to fill back up. when was it last serviced? may just need tightening etc with a good full service
