FigJam-OhNine Posted January 15, 2015 Share Posted January 15, 2015 I'm in Canada, so first off, excuse the metric. Actually, wait, metric makes perfect sense! You guys change! Okay, so the bike has an 18 liter fuel tank. My computer says I'm averaging 5.6L/100KM, which means a range estimate of 320KM. I've gone 230KM so far, and I'm on the last bar of the fuel gauge. Something tells me the last bar, plus reserve (2.6L) shouldn't equal 1/3rd of the range, so is the fuel gauge just wildly inaccurate? Im in the break-in period, so I don't even think the ECO light has gone off. Surely I should be getting pretty super range right now. When I get the revs up after break-in, is the fuel economy going to suck? Yeah, I know if you ride like a bat out of hell, you're going to pay for it at the pump, but within reason... This is my first tank of gas, so maybe it learns over time. Maybe there's some breakin that causes excessive fuel burn (which means the average L/100KM is way off). Maybe I shoudln't even post this until I've filled up enough times to have a decent sample size. I'm coming from a bike with a really accurate fuel gauge that had 10 segments on the display, so you really knew how much was left. This bike seems to burn through half a tank before the first segment goes on the display, and I think one of the segments went after about 20KM. Now I know I can just do the math in my head to figure out how much is left, but when you're focusing on not crashing a motorcycle, should you really be doing math? Whats everyone else's fuel guage doing? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
