Don't know how this measures up to others, but after about 1900 of mostly commuting miles, I'm getting 50.5 mpg.  I fill up around 190 to 200 miles on the trip odo and am having a blast on this little beast!  Can't complain about 240+ miles per tank . . .

I don't think I have ever owned a multi-cylinder bike that has returned the miles per gallon that the Tracer is returning. Even with some spirited riding in the mix, this bike is a winner in the MPG war.

He who dies with the most toys wins.

Mine was the same way for the first 2000 miles.  After that it dropped considerably to around 40.  Bounced back to around 45 around 2400.  However, after an Ivan's flash (2400 miles) I will probably never see much beyond 40.  It way too much fun to drive now with just about all the jerky-throttle issues removed, the throttle gets rolled much more than it used to.

I've noticed in West Texas where the speed limit is 80 on the interstates, mpg drops considerably. I almost got myself in trouble a couple of times when I 'assumed' 200 miles on a tank and there's considerable distances between gas stations.

I have an application called fuelio installed on my phone and it says I used 286.17 liters of fuel in 6.118 kilometres.
This is 52.62 mpg. It's okay.

I have the 2015 FJ-09, and I consistently get around 45 mpg. At 200 miles, it really starts screaming at me, and my OCD makes me stop for gas.
 
I've never run out, and I've never gotten close to filling the tank with 4.8 gallons (per Yamaha's spec)
 
Sometimes, I wish I had a bit more capacity, as most of my riding buddies can go much further than me, but It hasn't been a real problem.

I am getting about 52 mpg, the display computer shows avg of 57 mpg but pencil and paper calculations show that to be about 10% high.  I ride mostly at 50-60 mph in Colorado canyon roads at 5000 to 9000 elevations.  My low fuel warning light comes on around 200 miles.

After about 2,300 miles, my average is 50.0 according to the bike's read-out. Lots of riding at 70-75mph and lots of playtime in curvy roads, accelerating through curves. Been over 100mph a few times, too.

Agree with stgolfer, my 2015 FJ-09 got pretty poor gas mileage until I had around 3500-4000 miles, and then it stabilized around 45-48 mpg. Not sure why this is, but it seems pretty common on these bikes. Give it a bit more mileage, and it should improve....

After 4500 miles my GT says 62 mpg average, but I've never yet got to 50 mpg actual. My fuel light comes on at 190 miles, says I burned 3.5 gals but it takes 4.4 to fill.
