highway driving, all stock, doing 85ish, i get 49 mpg on the busa.

I have done 10 miles before doing 105 and then filled up to test it and showed 53mpg but may be some slight error with such a small number of miles on that run

Was getting 45-50 before I changed my pc3 tune, 40-45 after. The throttle is more crisp so I don't mind.
