I've just done some working out from the GPS and it looks like fuel economy has increased. Yesterday on a journey of 70NM I used 53 Litres which works out at a little over 1.3 NM to the litre.
Previously I seemed to be averaging 1.1 NM per litre. So given the price of fuel today the prop might pay for itself in a few years.

Well done Biggles, more power, better cornering, better fuel consumption, you got it all dude. WOT is 6200 so dont worry about screwing the engine. The Jappos always put in limits, if it was a motor bike you woudl get at least a further 1000 rpm.

Give it holly!
