I thought id get more out of a tank full than ive been getting so far. i have just under 200 miles on the bike and am on my 3rd tank. Most of it has been hwy riding too. Im hoping it gets better as the bike breaks in. Good to know i can go about 20 miles once the f trip kicks in.
I just went for a ride today where I pushed the fuel meter to about 19mi. for a total of 136 on the tank. Was out in the middle of nowhere on a date and got lucky and found a gas station. I was getting worried.
One tank I did an average pace(75-80mph) highway ride and I got up to 118miles before F-trip came on. Most of the time though I get about 110 before I hit f-trip and I fill up within 10miles just so I don't have to worry about it. On board display shows me a 44.3mpg average, but I'm not sure how accurate that thing is.
I'm curious to see how much that changes with my new exhaust and stoltec flash, I'm pretty sure I'll lose a few mpg but I'm not particularly worried. If I was chasing fuel economy I would've gotten a different bike...or a diesel golf.
Half a tank is a little early for me. I do fill up on the last bar though. I think the built in mpg calculator is a bit optimistic. I use Fuelly.com to track milage. You can txt your miles and gallons used to a certain number to update. Makes it easy.
