    Smile May have+used to+BFV

    Hello,
    Is this construction right or wrong,May have+used to+BFV.For example:
    1)You may have used to speak a lot.
    2)Ali is not a hardworking student but he used to get positions,he may have used to work hard.
    I would be highly thankful to u if u make me understand.If any one knows any good book for learning different structures or any web related to that,plz tell me.Cheers

    1)You may have used to speak a lot.
    2)Ali is not a hardworking student but he used to get positions,he may have used to work hard.
    1 is OK, but 2 is a bit confused, does this sound better:

    Ali is not a hard working student but he may have to get used to working hard if hewants to get a good job.




    PS Michael Swan has a good book on structure.
