900 Gas mileage
« on: April 19, 2021, 03:51:55 PM »
I'm thinking about changing over from my 1200 to the 900 GT Pro and want a general idea of the gas mileage the it is getting(in MPG). Your thoughts?

Im getting upper forties..... but i don't hang about much. Also I'm more bothered about the smile than the consumption  :007:

Better on the 900 than the 800 though....

45 to 50 mpg country roads.
No matter how bad your day is your BIKE will always make you feel better.

 I would say around 50mpg (imperial) for normal running about.  I think at a steady 70mph it would be good touring mileage.

The OP is in the USA. MPG in the USA is roughly 0.8x the UK rate.

50 mpg in the UK equals about 40 mpg in the USA.

I had an Explorer before the 900 and the 900 has a slightly better consumption but as someone has already pointed out the smile factor is bigger on the 9 than the 12.
You are only jealous as the voices are seeking to me!

I am US based.  Filled up today after 192 miles, 4.16 gallons for 46.1 mpg.    The best I have seen so far is 50 mpg, that was all moderate highway (45-55).

That was 75% in town between stop lights, etc.

The range indicator was telling me I had 24 miles left.  But clearly there is still a reserve.  Must be bigger than I thought though.  So I could probably have gone another 50 miles easy, 75 pushing it.

The pick up for the fuel pump is usually not at the bottom of the tank so on most modern bikes it is actually impossible to use all the fuel in the tank. It's not like the old days where you could tip the bike to one side to get the last drops of fuel to the side where the fuel tap was.
Some manufacturers (from memory BMW is one) are actually honest on their product specs and show the total fuel tank capacity and the "usable" fuel capacity.
