I've never checked my gas mileage
On a little 148 mile trip I took two weeks ago, I used 2.66 gallons. This translates to almost 57 MPG.
However, I suspect the odometer is 10% off, like the speedometer. If I recalculate, this translates to 62.5 MPG. :huh
If I recalculate correctly... ...I get just over 51 MPG.
Not too shabby!
High-mileage 1976 R90/6: 43 MPG consistantly, loaded or not, 65 or 80-MPH.
'89 Honda Transalp 47-51 mpg.
:huh I've never met anyone who didn't check mileage. How do you travel?
88 NX250 - 75-80mpg average - 65mpg worst - 98mpg best
04 R1150 GS 40-41 mpg mix of low speed to work & highway
First two tanks were around 35-37.
Bought it from Max at sea level w/ too tall of a front sprocket(ask Thinair thumper or 309 :eek1 ), too rich of a main jet, and too high of a needle for 5345-feet and up. I've since dropped the needle 2 notches, dropped a tooth from the front sprocket, and plan on changing the main jet of 165 to 160.
I'd go burn a tank of gas right now, except I'm waiting on its clutch cable to arrive.
'01 GSPD 650: best- upper 70's crawling along in 2nd gear, worst- lower 40's wide open w/ loaded boxes on a Mexican toll road(I weigh 212, too). Average about 60mpg.
'95 Ducati SS900: mid-40's.
