Oh dear! I have been running in the R3 more a few days now and around 360 miles down so far. By ‘running in’, I don’t mean running in like we used to do – keeping the revs below a certain limit for a few miles then slowly increasing, etc. – but more not revving the nuts off it everywhere.

So I was surprised that despite having a load of motorway miles in the total so far, I am only averaging 17½mpg!

It should hopefully loosen up and improve with a few more miles.
