My foot is pretty heavy, too. With my car I've seen just shy of 31 on the highway and I think the best I ever got in the city was 24. Generally I get an average of about 26 with mixed highway/city. (60% highway probably) However I am 99.9999% sure that my intake silencer removal, k&n filter and flowmaster muffler increased my MPG.
I get about 19-20 in the city - short trips about 6 - 12 miles city driving.
this is on my bone stock vulcan with 133 kmiles on it.
Also I have a feeling that I am getting a slightly better mpg now that I changed to 10w30 motor oil.
