My best single-tank mpg on my twin-cam was 39 mpg - may have been an outlier, but most of that tank was used on 55 mph roads in 5th gear with virtually no in-town driving; relatively few stops.

I seldom drive that pattern - most of my driving is a bit of in-town driving, then 55 mph in between when I get out of town and before I get to the next town or work; and getting around 34~35 mpg

I'm not worthy to grovel in the shadow of Signmaster's wisdom
