I'm pretty sure that I can get 170 - 190 if I'm not pushing it too hard on the highway. On average I think I get around 145 - 150.

What kind of fuel you using? Are you that 10% ethanol "oxygenated" fuel? If so I'd try to avoid that if you can...

I get about 110-120 before it starts flashing and then I've got another gallon left to go find a gas station.

Did you always have the same mileage or has it gotten worse recently?

My gauge buttons are broken (like many other RR owners).. it's a little harder to record my gas mileage.

I record the mileage when I fill up, then when I gas up again, I subtract beginning mileage from the current odometer mileage. That will give you distance traveled since last fill up. If you fill up again, you'll replace all the gas you used. If you divide miles traveled (current mileage minus mileage at last fill up) by the gallons you put in your tank, you'll get your average miles per gallon. For commuting to school and going out of my way to hit up the twisties on the way home, I get 38-40 a gallon. That's with chugging along in 6th and accelerating relatively slowly. Though, in the twisties I typically don't go above second gear to stay in power band.

Squid test:

So far, 13109 people (including you) have responded to this Squid Test Survey and have been tabulated.
Of those responses, the average grade is 53. Your grade was 82 (from 0 to 100)

A higher grade indicates a stronger sense of common decency, and a lower grade is an indication of conspicuous squidliness and general disregard for civilized society. Your score indicates that you are a fairly responsible motorcyclist but a bit of a wise-ass.

Hahaha.

no I converted it to MPH for you. I used to be able to do 4x 85km legs back and forth to work and I was pretty much in the red zone for the last 30 - 40km of the trip... probably close to being on fumes :-D

Been a while since I've trying to keep track of the Millage though. But I'm fairly sure that I'm somewhere in the 140 - 150 mile range.

i recently took at trip to the 09 600rr.net charity picnic 2 hours of hwy and about an hour of group ride 164 miles per tank that's mainly highway... but u have to realize that im doing probly 80 which is about 6-7k rpm a lot higher than regular around town cursing which is more like 3-4k rpm.

Alot of facotrs play into how much mpg u get:
sprocket size
weight
riding style sit up or down more
tire pressure
rpm how u ride
windy / not windy all that crap
and of course color makes you go faster (lol j/k)
etc...

the one thing that it paramount is how much is a "tank" for you

my gauge says empty after 2.5 gallons even though there is over 2 gal left.

if your using 3 gallons to go 100 miles thats 33mpg so you really need to add that and is the bike maintained well ect ?

I got around 175-190 per full tank. I do hope that you fill your gas all the way to the top and not where the fuel pump clicks.

I routinely get 39 mpg, got 120 miles last tank, fuel guage on last bar and not blinking when I fill up. That is riding twisties, fast starts, occasional gunning, and highway riding. I am not riding in 1&2 gear , but not conservative either.

Ha! I ran out of gas for the first time on a bike about two weeks ago. Just bought my 07 at the end of april and had never run a full tank through on one trip before. Got about 150 miles out of it but it seemed like this time the reserve light was only on for a few miles. Or maybe I just didn't notice it come on? After adding 1 gallon and riding to and from work (about 22 miles round trip) I filled up and the tank only took 3.5 gallons which makes me think I should have had a few more miles before I ran out. I have ridden about 30 miles on reserve before and usually fill up with about 4.3-4.5 gallons. Maybe heat and trip length are the culprits? Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?

I get about 32 to the gallon. I am 200 lbs with gear, and it has a PC, full exhaust, BMC race filter, and a rider with a penchant for throttle...

I have an 05 and I get to the last bar at about 120 miles. Then I fill it up and it only take about 3.5 gallons, so I'm guessing my guage is a bit off. I've only had the bike a few weeks and haven't had a chance to push it (the mileage) yet.

I have an 07, and i get 150-190 easy every time, depending on how i ride and where. I seem to get better gas mileage on the highway even though rpms are higher they are consistant. In town driving all day i get the 150ish per tank. I have figured out my miles per gallon very time i fill up this yr and its always between 42-46miles per gallon.
Now i have a Question for you guys im about to order a YOSHIMURA RS5 RS-5 SS/CF SlipOn pipe.... what is this going to do to my gas milelage? i have heard it will lower it a lot? is this True? If i have it Power Commander'ed will that still lower my gas milage? make it better or worse having it PCed?

I average around 120-150 depending on how I ride. Using 91 octane or better is a good thing...

its only a good thing if your motor needs it

03, 04, 05, and 06 do not need it, 07 - 09 does

it doesnt give you any more power, infact, due to the way the fuel system is on out bikes, its ACTUALLY less power

I recently went for a ride from Gainesville, FL to Naples, FL (about 300 miles) and I averaged about 75 mph and I got 55MPG. I think it was just shy of 170 miles on 3.1 gallons. 07 with slip on and BT016's

why would it be less power? i am not arguing with you, but i am just looking for an explanation.
thanks!

i have an 06 and i get about 150 before i start looking for gas and have taken it to 170 but never ran it empty. that was with a couple of 140 spurts and what not.
