    What is your fuel consumption

    I thought it'd be worthwhile starting a thread on this for comparison purposes.

    In the 200 or so miles I seem to get 45 -47mpg (imperial gallon) or about 10 - 10+ mpl. The on board computer does appear to be accurate.

    Mixed/varief use, no commuting.

    What's yours?

    5.5 - 6.0 L/100km.
    Much more consumption if ridden in mountains.

    Worst 34MPG
    Best 51MPG

    Average about 42MPG

    Higher fuel consumption = bigger smile

    measured mine on a 1,350 mile trip to Scotland, so mixed motorway, main, and small roads.

    It averaged 43mpg.

    Don't normally bother with what the bike does to the gallon,
    but out of curiosity i just had a look and since the last fill I've been running at 10.8 mpl
    quite surprised about that because i do use v-tec alot

    Lenny...you're mixing your measures.

    In the uk, we measure/quote fuel consumption in mpg yet buy our fuel in litres!
    The display on the CR shows consumption in miles/ltr.

    We are 'mainly' metric - until it comes to timber, which we still buy in 3x2 (inches)
    Our doors are imperial 2'6" or 30" but manufacturers show metric to the nearest mm but a 30" door is much easier to remember!  :008:

    As far as I'm aware matey we cant get the C/R to display figures in mpg, So I was just quoting what it says on the display panel, couldn't be bothered to convert it into mpg,  :028:
