It only burns fuel when it goes pop. And lower rpm's produce less power, so your throttle opening is much greater, which reduces engine vacuum pumping losses for greater efficiency. There is a nice intake resonance tuned torque bump at 3,700-4,200 for riding through town. Coast the second half of the street length to the next stop sign. You waste gas every time you touch the brakes. My economy was down a bit this year after changing the rear pads. Plus it was much cooler this year. 115 mpgUS last year with the Michelins. Only 106 this year.
