Picked up my new 5er in Longmont CO two weeks ago. Trip home, Denver to Casper, WY, 7.1 mpg bucking a 20+ mph head wind. Casper to Worland, 11.1 no head wind. Cruise set to 68, pulls like a beast. 5er is a 2018 Solitude 310GK, combined weight of 23,300 lbs. Next trip I will load her down!

Mileage running empty seems to be averaging around 18.5. Mileage will jump to around 22 and then regen sucks the mileage out.
