Well based on conversions.
at 7.5L per 100km: 62.1371 Miles / 1.98129 gallons = 31.36 mpg
at 8L per 100km: 62.1371 Miles / 2.11338 = 29.4 mpg.
Not too bad! And you have the 5 speed I'm assuming, since you are saying you think the 8 speed will help mileage. (That'll depend on gearing for highway, should help city/mixed some.)
