    I just cant decide which one to get. The 08 XT 250 sure looks cool, but I would like to know what kind of MPGs it gets, along with the 225. Anybody clock it yet?

    I sold my DR 650 because it didnt get much better mileage than my car, a Geo Metro (made by suzuki!)

    Plenty of threads devoted to the Xt's... My fam has one (xt225) that gets 75mpg! I have heard the 250 gets about thqat as well. THe only other gasoline motorcycle I know that gets that much mpg is a ninja 250:huh Must be something magical about that mid 200cc engine size :D

    Hi PJHeckel,

    my trusty XT250 Serow has averaged aroung 85mpg, over 62,000kms and usually gives nearer 90mpg when commuting.

    Don't forget these are Imperial gallons not US.

    We also have an XT225 Serow in the family and that usually gives about a 5% improvement in the fuel bill.

    So in the real World you can remove the fuel difference from your selection criteria.

    My 2007 XT225 gets about 75-84 miles per US gallons. I know what you mean about the Geo Metro. I had a 1990 that I put 160,000 miles on that average 54 miles per gallon.Thats exactly what my 2005 KLR650 is getting, but the Geo would keep me warm,dry, and seated 4 people.The only thing that ever went wrong with it was the muffler rusted out. When I finally trade it in on a new Gew Metro 4 door sedan it still had the original brakes (even the fronts!!0 and clutch.Maybe the best car I ever owned.
    The thing I like about the XT225 in the six speed trans-the 250 is a five speed.

    I averaged 80 mpg (UK gals) on my XT225 on the road on my commute to work and back.

    Got a 94' XT225 and the speedo shows both Mph and Kmh on the 2nd row.

    Any idea is the tripmeter is in miles or km? my guess is miles....just need a confirmation.

    For that guess work, i can't figure whats the fuel consumption but it does run for a long time, full tank till about 150miles before reserve.

    I've averaged 65mpg so far. It'd probably do better if I wasn't the world's largest XT225 rider and I didn't keep the throttle wide open most of the time.

    I bought a new XT225 this spring and have kept gas records from the beginning. I often ride two up with the girlfriend, and things in the crate on the rack, so we have a total load of over 300 pounds. I like to keep the speed 60MPH or less, the bike will do over 70MPH but not up steep hills. This is a great little bike on state roads and trails but not good for the interstate. Here are the fuel records.

    I consistently get 70mpg on my DR250SE and that's not riding it in a fuel-conscious manner.

    I'm averaging 80 mi. a gallon with my 08' xt250. Is there any sights on here just for the '08 xt 250. I'm trying to get input about changing tires.

    So much depends on how you ride. I have an 08 xt250. At 55 mph on the highway, i get 75 mpg. At 65 mph, I get 65 mpg.

    I normally get between 60mpg and 65mpg on my 2005 XT225. I'm 230lbs, however, and I like to move it. lol
