I dont usually bother with MPG, just how many miles to a tankfull. This is usually around 190 ( too and from work) before the light comes on, then like paul said a fill up within around 20 miles, JIC.

The maximum I ever did before filling up was 225ish and that was coming home form big mac last year. I was sweating a bit before the services signs appeared. pale

Usually 50-55, depending on the riding. This took a hit when we were riding back from Germany last year trying to catch the Eurotunnel - a few hours sat at [ahem] mph makes a dent in the fuel economy. Wink

always do 200 miles, commuting to work 40 mile daily round trip, before filling up as it's nice and convenient and the light never comes on. When I do work it out approx 65mpg
