Mileage

2015 XCx. I've got about 1,500 miles on mine now. Averaging 50 mpg. I've found that if I do much cruising over 70, the mileage suffers. One trip I did had a lot of freeway riding at 85+ miles per...

Hmmm. In Colorado, 85 is regular and 87 is midrange. It may have something to do with the altitude. In any case, I last filled up with 85 rated regular to see what happens.
