Discover the Benefits of Gas-Saving Yamaha Scooters

Posted on September 14, 2010 by TwoWheelMania.

The C3 is a great looking scooter, but Yamaha really built this one to be a highly functional transportation tool. An all-new 49cc fuel injected four-stroke engine, nine gallons of storage space and up to 115 miles on a single gallon of fuel.

No one needs to be reminded that the cost of gasoline has skyrocketed in recent years. We get a ugly reminder at the pump, once or twice a week, and it gets worse each time we visit. What does it cost you weekly just to go back and forth from work or school? If you say too much, then would a vehicle that could get 123 miles per gallon help the budget? A scooter owner saves money on gas and insurance; parking is easy; scooters encourage less congestion in parking lots and streets; and they use less oil than motorcycles or cars.

If you thought Scooters were just for baggette carrying, beret crested, wine sipping Europeans you were wrong. Scooters are a rapidly growing segment of the American two wheel market, brought on not only by the need to get around without cleaning out the bank account, but also by the pure fun of scooting around town. With the growing popularity of scooters, everybody is interested in the topic of scooter mileage.

What will be the factors affecting the scooter mileage? The first most obvious part is the payload. If the body of the scooter is heavy then obviously it will consume more fuel and in turn will give less scooter mileage. The technology is continuously striving to make the scooter body lighter and lighter. Lightweight alloys now replace the heavy cast iron parts of the yesteryears scooters and ABS plastic is widely used in the body parts. All of this progression has created some lightweight, fun and highly efficient ways to zip back and forth in town on a shoestring budget. Scooters have quite a following too. There are those who ride scooters for transportation, and then there are scooterists. Scooterists love to ride in groups at rallies and planned events. Fellow scooterists restore vintage scoots; go for weekend rides just for the fun of it, and even race their scoots.

Leave it to American scooterists to push the outer limits of anything; there is even a cross-country, 3000+ mile, scooter endurance race called the Cannon Ball that runs every two years.

You don’t need to run coast to coast to appreciate the economy of owning a scoot though, just look at the MPG on these new models from Yamaha.

Yamaha is now providing fuel economy estimates (MPG) for their complete scooter models. The fuel economy estimates are based on US EPA exhaust emission certification data obtained by Yamaha. A rider’s actual mileage will vary depending on road conditions, how they ride, and the maintenance of each vehicle, vehicle accessories, cargo that may be carried and the operators and passengers weight.
