If you fill up at different gas stations ethanol content affects your gas mileage as well.

Good habit, saves your fuel pump as well.

I was in CA last year and find a gas station is the least of your problem in that state. Well except for driving on CA-1 near Big Sur.

If you fill up near empty like me , you may have gotten lucky and got the early "fun gearing" rather than the lazy a$$ "fuel efficient gearing" found in later models.

At 120km what is your RPM ?
