30 MPG, where art thou?

Been getting mpg in the mid to high 20s, and far fewer than 100 miles before the fuel light (fool light?) comes on.

Remember when Ducati sportbikes used to get way better MPG than the Jap fours?

Sigh.

Still . . . it's worth it.

You must be ringing it's neck? LOL I consistently get 30+ mpg and don't see the fuel light until north of 100 miles. However, most of my riding at the moment is highway so.....

111 miles then fuel light kicks on like clock work. 34 MPG average per avg fuel consump on the dash with hard canyon riding.

Assuming 4.5 gallon tank - 1.3 reserve = 3.2 gallons before light comes on when full?
111 miles/3.2gal =34.68 mpg yep matches my dash. bravo Ducati

The most I got was 42 mpg average doing a constant 75 mph on the freeway without opening the throttle up. It was very hard not to open it up

I got about 120 miles in on Sunday before my light came on but I was cruising at an even 80 the entire way.

I Ride: '13 1199 Base, '12 Arctic Cat F800SP
Just checked mine...8.3l/100km average over 7200 km (28mpg)

Most modern cars do better than that.

Then again ; who cares, didn't buy that bike to save on gas.

You and I seem to be in the same boat. I guess I am a little heavy with the throttle application.

Does anyone know where I can get one of those 5.5 gallon tanks they use on the SBK bikes?

i have never had the light come on past 100 miles, but i also commute with mine


when i am in the canyons and so forth i can get better MPG than i do going to work in traffic.

but Im ok with it too, its way too fun to worry about an extra 10miles per tank
