Hello,

What sort of distance between fuel stops are people getting?

Nothing like constant mathematical gymnastics to ruin a ride! I'M rather spoilt by the V7 270 mile tank even if the light comes on at 200, but don't want to go back to the 140 my Bonneville had.

Cheers

Andy

I'm getting about 140 miles out of £12 as I brim the tank.

However now that I have the Akro fitted ..... it'll be much less :)

After my first 800km, I get about 260km on a full tank (approx 160 miles).
Mostly city driving, and I don't rev above 5000 rpm.

@ KaptinOrsum, pretty curious to know how much the Akro affects your mileage.

That doesn't sound too bad at all, highway mileage would be even better, even more with bigger vehicles in front of you since that cuts down on wind resistance.

Thanks for the info. I'm pretty easy on fuel and certainly won't be buying a loud exhaust, so while I'd like 200+ the trade off isn't a deal killer.

An accurate fuel gauge will be a bonus anyway, the Guzzi light let's you know you are on the last half of the tank! The charitable call it Italian character rather than thinking how slapdash the design is!

Cheers

I assume it would. More blipping of the throttle. Harder acceleration to hear it scream. It's not so much brought about by the pipe, BT the person listening to the pipe :)

I used to drive 6.0l+ V8's with over 500bhp as a minimum. So seeing north of 50mpg in something that runs on petrol and not diesel is blowing my mind ;)

The fuel gauge on the yamaha works like this, top 2 bars last for ages, last 2 bars go down quicker than womans panties when i drop my mix tape. I've read about a few people noticing this on the MT's as well.

That's probably the best description i've heard about a fuel gauge, others just make you yawn. :grin2:

So a majority of that 160 mile range is used up in the first two bars and by the time you're on your last two bars, you better be on the lookout for a gas station? Never really got to that point as I try to keep my tank as full as possible.

Maybe my rides aren't long enough. :crying:

With my sc project I do an average of 4.5l/100km and gives me 230km ish range.

If I ride with happy mode on, my average raises up to 5.5l/100km and I do around 180/200km.

Used for commuting to work, 5-10 miles each way depending on the route I take.
Last bar started to flash at 120 miles
Took £10 to fill up.

Results after a weekend cruising around. I have filled my tank with 11 lt. I've made approximately 280 kms, with speed ranging up to 145 km/h, and in a variety of roads, highway, small country roads with many turns. Pretty satisfied with mileage
