After having the "Reserve" Low Fuel indication yesterday which was telling me I had 75 kms left I only managed to get 15 litre in the 20 litre tank, one day I shall run it out just to find out.
You are only jealous as the voices are seeking to me!

Its best not to run the tank to dry as the fuel is used to cool the pump down, I can get 200- 220 miles between fill ups.

I screwed myself once a couple years ago on my 800 and the gauge and indicator showed I was completely empty for about 30km.  When I finally got to a station and filled up I still had around 2L of fuel in the tank.  So as they say YMMV

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....

I don't think so, on my 2018 Tiger 800 I get a genuine 55 mpg on my 6 mile commute, noticeably better mpg on long journey's.

I tend to be a switf rider, I don't do much stop and go or brake a lot then hard accel, I trail brake
a lot so my fuel consumption is always better than many riders I ride with on my T800.

On my daily comutes with cruise control, I do a solid 4.5L/100 so 62MPG UK and overall I never really
go above 5.0L/100 so around 56MPG UK.

So much that within a few weeks, for my 20K service I'm switching to -1 front sprocket, for better 2up
and especially that the RPM at many cruising speeds here in Switzerland, is around 4200 when there's
the slight hesitation, so I want to keep it above with new sprocket, will see impact on the mileage.

Here in eastern TN when I am by myself and take a 2-3 hour ride with very little interstate and the rest country lanes I do about 44 mpg U.S. gallon. That's per the TFT read out over several tanks.  When I ride with a local group which includes several trikes  and adherence to the speed limit (read slow) I do about 55 mpg. That's with similar roads and distance. On the 55 limit stretches that's also using the cruise as well.

So that's 53 to 66 UK gallons per mile from one extreme to the other. I use 87 octane fuel which has ethanol in it during the season then at the end switch to 91 octane non-ethanol to finish the season so winter does not have any ethanol in the fuel system. I don't notice any difference between the two grades in performance or mpg but not really taken the data to prove it.

I could easily get 60mpg on my S10 commuting. I would have expected better than that.

The BMW F650GS I previously rode did 73 UK mpg which was remarkable but my 800 XCA does 63 mpg on the open A-road type of riding I do which is still impressive giving me a theoretical range of at least 250 miles on each tank. I managed 230 miles once and still had a few litres left when I filled up!

Sounds like a NC750  :001:

Must must confess MPG isnt a governing factor for me  :038:
