African bike-moped does 50 km per liter.

This is a motorized bicycle, made in Kisumu, Kenya and purchased in Kakemega. The tank can hold about two liters (about 0.5 US gal.) of petrol (gas) and can theoretically get around 50 km (about 31 miles) a liter. They cost around 7,000 Kenyan shillings (about USD 107:-). To start the bicycle you start pedaling manually, then you flip a switch on the left handle that starts the engine. Then you have a normal motorcycle throttle control on the right side. It’s a bit like the iconic French VelóSolex mopeds that were the preferred simple and cheap transportation for millions of French for almost sixty years.brbr
