MPG and what's the most gas you've squeezed in?

How many mpg are you guys getting. I'm usually at 51-53 US mpg. The other day I knew I had about 200 mls between stations - that or around 100. I pulled into the gas station at 207 mls and 3 mls after the range counter had gone to zero. It took 3.7 gallons, 56 mpg, still 1/2 gallon left. Although how much of that is usable? Anyone put more than 3.7 in while the engine would still run?

Good question. Believe most Iíve added is about 3.3 gallons. Donít believe Iíve ever achieved that mpg, maybe 46-48 at most. Have a habit of wringing itís neck too much.

The best tank mileage I've gotten is about 45. Mostly get low 40s. I ran it down to zero range and believe there is about half gallon, maybe 2/5th left in tank. I posted it here somewhere. I have no idea at what point the tanks actually runs out.

Got about 41 when wicked down to Austin about 85-90 much of the way with bags on. My riding buddy's FJR was getting hi 40s. He laughed when he filled up every other gas stop.

Mileage always better in the mountains.

Thinner air. Less HP too. But still enough. I was being a little more careful to get 56 knowing that I had to get at least 200 mls. My Triumph holds 5.2 gals and gets 60 - 65 mpg.

I never had the range meter go to zero, closest I ever got was at 20 km remaining (approx 12.5 miles), though that was a well over legal highway speeds so longer at slower speeds obv. By then I still had 2,5 litres (0.66 US gallon) in the tank.

As for fuel mileage, mine seems to be on the high side compared to others on the site, using between 5,8-6,5 l/100 km (36-40 us mpg).

15.1 litres at 167 miles and the range said zero miles. That's 50.3 mpg Imp, approx 40.2 mpg US, although I have managed over 55 mpg Imp on occasion.
I could get 67 mpg Imp out of my old ST4s on long trips.

How much different is the Termi upmap compared with the OEM map when considering the fuel consumption?

I live at sea level, sometimes as low as 6' below sea level. My bike hasn't seen anything above 38 MPG. Sucks, because I'd like to go longer between fill ups. Right now I have to fill up every 110-120 miles.

Range is definitely a limiting factor for our bikes. I for one would have liked an extra 1/2 gallon or so. Really curious how much of our actual gas we can use before we the engine won't run.

the bike needs 20 more HP and another gallon in the tank. With no weight penalty and at half the cost. Cruise and heat as well. Otherwise, it's pretty nice bike. BTW, I can't go 100 miles without stopping and stretching when riding any bike.

1UB, do you have 14t sprocket? I do and attribute it to perhaps a fuel mileage deficit. Sometime after putting 5,000 miles on the bike, it did seem to loosen up and seems to rev a lot quicker. If it ran like this when I bought it I might've kept the stock gearing but doubtful I'll go back.
