First tank of fuel. Right at 70 mpg, and that wasn't with trying to do anything but get comfortable with the bike. Plus I think I put in a slight bit more fuel than the first time I filled it up. So far I'm very happy with the fuel economy!!

According to the manual, the minimum octane you should use is 86.

101.0

240.0 miles/ 2.377 gallons US = 101.0 mpgUS
My first tank over 100 mpg for my commute. Two legs weren't perfect. I can still do better.

Garage
I'm averaging 70mpg, based on several tanks, and I'm pretty thrilled. I don't consciously try to "conserve" gas, btw. It just happens!

I just logged my worst mpg tank so far at 71.4 MPG, the only fill-up at a BP gas station. I will never use BP gas again. I always use Shell but it was an emergency so I had to take BP gas at the time.

Now my average went from 80 to 78.8 dagnabbit. No wander I never see any motorcycles at BP gas stations.

My best tank so far is 84.8 mpg.

I have been averaging 77 - 85 MPG so far. Usually dont exceed 70MPH on daily commute to work. Have the + 1 front & -2 rear sprockets on order, should have them in next week. Hoping to crack at least 90 MPG for daily driving.

I just logged my best tank to date at 88 MPG.

Today I filled up at Shell with 2.308 gals of gas for $7.68 at 1796 miles on the odometer. The last fuel bar just started to blink at 203 miles and I stopped for gas. If I wanted to run the tank dry I could have easily managed another 50-70 miles making it a grand total of 250 to 270 miles on one tank of gas.

My last tank was my worst so far at 71.4 MPG and it was the only time I filled up at BP Gas. BP Gas can kiss my keister b/c I will never do business with them again. The only other time that I didn't use Shell besides the one time at BP was Stop and Go gas b/c it was an emergency. However, Stop and Go gas was just a couple mpg off of Shell gas.

The morale to the story: Stick with Shell gas, top tier gas or ethanol-free gas if you are lucky enough to have one near you. You will get the best mpg with the best gas. I didn't used to believe in the gas brand hype but now I know better.
