this isnt a complaint about the price of gas or anything, i found tons of posts on that.

i was wondering what does everyone run on there bike, regular, premium, plus? and what kinda of mileage do you get to a tank? i know its all based on different driving styles, but id like to get a rough idea

im right around 120 or so when i fill up and im on last bar and havent hit reserve yet..

I know i get about 18-19 miles per bar on the gas guage..

so 18 miles per bar x 7 bars = 126 miles..

I got 90 miles on my first tank so far and I am on the last bar, not flashing yet. I have no clue what kinda gas the dealer put in when I bought it but I plan on putting the highest octane I can find in it when I have too (minus race gas).

Flashing means it's on reserve and you got about 1 gallon left, that's a pretty generous reserve, figure 20%, that's like your gas light coming on at 4 gallons in a 20 gallon tank when it's more like 2.

I got 145 on my first tank with the light flashing, I filled up 3.75 gallons, so not bad at 39MPG

the 600RR gets crappy gas mileage. i get about 120 miles and then i am on the last bar. usually i am in the 33mpg range, which is absolutely junk. i was on a group ride with a bunch or R1's, CBR954's, a TL1000R, ZX-9R, etc, and I got the worst mileage of the lot. It was a slow ride, we never went over about 8k rpm or 80 mph (there were a few beginners with us - one on an EX-500 - luckily she was cute). Most of those people were getting 45-50 mpg during the ride. All my other bikes (EX-500, ZX-7R, and a YZF600R) all got at least 50mpg when I took it easy, and never below 40mpg on the street.

Add that with the gasoline smell on my clothes ('03 600RR)... and I might not buy a Honda again. Starting to think I should have stuck with Yamaha or Kawasaki. Of course... HONDA fixes the smell issue for the '04's... :bitchslap:
