Expected mpg

I'm also getting in the lower 40s, but it seems to be a result of the
jetting and the V&H full system.  Prior to adjusting the carbs I was getting
near 50 mpg, but it was stumbling at low rpm and taking off on a hill was
... interesting.  And we don't have *any** *hills in Vermont.  After
adjustments things are running very smoothly throughout the rpm band, but
mileage definitely took a hit.
