    Uhoh. That's exactly what I did at their October open house, and now a K1600GTL sits in the garage. Be warned!

    Since new, the average mpg has been 42. It drops below 40mpg at speeds of 70 mph and higher, and climbs to 44-45 when on back roads at 40-60mph. Not as good as my RT used to get, but still good considering the great power and torque.
