i always keep my revs under 3000, usually under 2500, except once in a while.

try to keep your revs low and only rip it a couple of times per tank


also, that mileage seems normal cuz its winter.

^ also because
people let their cars idle before driving off
gas companies have addatives in the gas in winter

that and if there is snow outside on the roads it will take more power to plow through it. I get about 10litres/100km as well so I guess your normally. I have a b16
