Righteo, thought I'd get a fuel economy register going. I realise some people might not give a damn but I always find it interesting...especially if its especially good or bad. List your ride & mileage, your distance & fuel usage, and how the machine was used. Heres mine:

'88 CBR250R; 25,000km

11.5L / 225km (5.1L/100km)

Mostly hard riding >100km/h, with around 40km in trips to work @ 60km/h.

Don't just put 'a tank' for the volume though, as this varies depending on when you fill up and what amount you fill up to. I tend to reset my trip indicator and note the litres I put into the tank, thus getting fuel economy.

Cheers guys - boingk

2009 R1, slip on M4 system (economy was pretty much the same stock though) 160 - 170km to reserve light (19L fuel tank w/ 3L reserve)
That's mixed urban and recreational riding, for just a rideout i'll top 200km per tank... freeway riding considerably more.

still not too good though haha

Yoshi slipon
Best so far is 262kms on 15.8ltrs with 1.2 left in the tank..
That was a 40/60 mixture of hardish and highway riding..
The economy blows me away on this thing for a 1000cc bike.. I believe with all responsible highway riding im capable of 300kms easy out of the tank:D

Hessian: yeah 98 only.

Bikerwog, sounds like my ZX9... i kept all my reciepts and was getting 5L/100km out of my ZX9 riding it to sydney... with a 19 litre tank that's way over 300km a tank... course that's just highway cruising but yeah. Not too shabby though!

Woosh...some dodgy fuel economy in there! Sweet merciful jesus, you guys must be absolutely pizzling some of those bikes... or they aren't running well haha.

170km/7L so someone thats more intelligent than me work it out
To work out litres per 100km, all you need to do is divide the amount of litres used by the amount of kilometers travelled, divided by one hundred. Your example would be:

(170km per 7L) = (7 divided by {170/100}) = (7/1.7) = 4.1L per 100km

See? Easy!

Cheers - boingk
