You need to use the commonscheme option:

avplots, scheme(s1mono) commonscheme

One way would be to draw each -avplot- and rewrite the note():

avplot mpg, name(gr1, replace) note("coef= 49.51, se = 86.16")
avplot weight, name(gr2, replace) note("coef= 1.75, se = .64")
graph combine gr1 gr2, scheme(s1mono) commonscheme

Or you could alter -avplot- so that the coef and se are rounded (you
may want to make a back up copy of -avplot-).

You could change lines 114 and 115 from

local coef=return(coef)
local se=return(se)
to
local coef=round(return(coef), .01)
local se=round(return(se), .01)

so that that displayed estimates are rounded.
