Post 2012 cbr600rr - How many miles on full tank?

Hey guys,

On my new cbr600rr with a full tank of fuel, I'm at 112 miles with 1 bar of gas left (Bar is blinking).

Does this sound about right? I've been mostly riding around town, no highways.

Thanks ya'll...

seems a little low but yea sounds normal depending upon how hard you are on the throttle. i believe the bar starts blinking with 1 gallon left which puts you at about ~30 MPG.

I get about the same. I think the most I've "braved" it was 150mi. Last few tanks I've gotten about 40mpg+ however, I usually fill it before the light starts blinking which I believe means you have a little over a gallon left.

Most I've filled is about 3.5-3.75 gallons and it's supposed to be a 4.76 gallon tank.

I normally get 160 or so before mine starts blinking but I've been averaging 44-47mpg lately and a normal fill-up for me when the light just starts flashing or sometimes right before is around 3.3-3.5 gallons.

My driving is a mix of slight city, some country roads, and some 55 mph highways.

Seems on the low side to me but it could be attributed to stop-and-go traffic and riding it hard from the green lights.

I'm averaging 49 mpg on my 2013 CBR600RR. My daily commute is probably 1/3 stop-and-go and the rest is 55 to 85+ mph on the long stretches.

Life Pro Tip: Because I average over 600 miles a week, I keep four 5 gallon gas cans loaded up with premium fuel in my garage. I just fill up every evening instead of wasting my time at the gas pumps.

damn i thought i was going crazy when at the pump and i'm close to empty. if i recall, the specs for an '07 is a 4.8 gallons but i swear the most i've ever put in there was a few days ago at 4.01 gallons and i was sitting at 135 miles on the tank so i was pretty much close to running out.

these bikes must have one hell of a gas line if it has 4.8 gallon capacity.

MPG, is based on each person on how they ride & for each bike is different.

I can easily get 240 miles out of a tank riding normally...

Dehingst...I doubt you can find anyone with a cbr600rr who would agree with you. The math doesn't even add up. 4.8 gal tank @ 40MPG, and you got 240 miles out of it easily...LOL GTFO

Do you have the OEM exhaust? Full Exhaust? Slip on? PCV? AutoTuner?

On my 2012 i have a yoshi slip on. I get about 160 to a tank. On my 2006 I had a two bros with a PCV and got about 120 to a tank....

These bikes should get roughly 40 MPG but if you have modifed the exhaust and have other add ons that manage your fuel/air ratio then that will change your MPG.

If he was to average 50+ MPG and run her dry he could do it. But it would take more work than normal riding.

My last few tanks have averaged 46-47mpg and getting that the fuel gauge just ticks down to the last bar between 150 and 155 miles and when I get fuel the low light isn't flashing yet. Then it has been 3.3 gallons to fill up. Also I rarely get the RPM's over 7000 when I am trying to get decent fuel economy and try to keep it under 6000. But it's always nice to open her up and have a little fun from time to time. I still average over 42 when having fun though. I was in the mid to high 30's back when I did a lot of around town and in traffic though.

According to Fuelly, there are people that log over 50MPG on the CBR's so it could be possible if your brave enough to run that low lol. But I know I'm not, once that light starts flashing I'm looking for where I'm going to stop.

bahahaha I get a whopping 36mpg on my bike!!! I didn't buy it for fuel economy, I bought it for fun!!

How far you can go on a tank depends on your individual bike, and how heavy you are on the throttle. FWIW I get about 120-130 miles until I'm on the last bar (not flashing)... I've only ridden to where that bar was flashing once, and don't remember what the tank mileage was at.

Is this the 1st 112 miles? If so you are probably getting the "new" MPG. If I recall mine didn't do to well for the first tank or two. Then it's been about 135 to 140 when it gets to the last bar. Around here we have the "summer" gas which also includes ethanol which gets worse mileage also. Took a 1,200 mile trip last month and once or twice got close to 200 miles on a tank. Seems like it started getting to the last bar after about a year (8,000 miles) but that may have been my riding style. Best mileage for me is on highways at 55 to 65 MPH. Every time I fill up try and do a quick calc in my head to see what MPG is. Good way to spot something out of sorts.

I hear you I get 35.

80% of my tank goes to 6500-7000 rpm doing 75-80 mph.

I actually range in the high 40s to low 50s for mpg for everyday use, but I tend to get into the highest gear I can as often as I can. Higher gears + lower rpm = better mpg. That being said, a day of riding in the country and on the twisties has a noticeable impact on my mpg...as was mentioned before, there are a lot of variables that affect it.

IMO, your mileage seems a bit low. If you are blinking you should have approx one gallon (+ or -) left meaning you've used a little less than four. Rounding to four for quick math suggests you are getting about 28 mpg...seems a little low...just my $0.02
