    A quick look on Fuelly gives an average of about 51 mpg for a 2014 model and therefore 36 mpg for the bike in question is very low although all these figures depend on what sort of roads the bike is used on and how it is ridden. At face value, it sounds as though it is running rich. The normal way of checking this would be to look at the colour of the spark plugs but this is easier said than done on a Tiger 800. If it is running rich, this could be due to a faulty sensor; for example, the O2 sensor or MAP sensor.

    If youíre using E10 then it might worth trying a tankful of E5 or even Ethanol free if itís available where you are.

    How are you judging when it's empty and how many litres does it actually take to fill up again?

    With the same bike, I usually get to around 150 miles before the fuel light comes on and can comfortably do another 30 miles on reserve knowing where the petrol stations are on my regular journeys. Then it only takes about 15 litres to fill up. I once ran it empty to the point of misfiring and even then only got 17 litres in.

    I do think that fuel consumption has gradually increased while I've owned the bike though, it used to be 170-180 miles to the fuel light.

    It is certainly better to think in terms of mpg in assessing whether the bike is behaving properly or not. That said, at the average of 51 mpg for this bike, it should still do closer to 170 miles on average before the low fuel light comes on. If the mileage on 15 L is around 150 miles then that would equate to about 45 mpg which would be within normal bounds if the bike is ridden hard or used regularly on fast roads such as a motorway.

    I used to get 50ish mpg on 2013 tiger and 65-73mph on 2018👍.

    Always best to work out properly, when filled up

    I've never known any bike vary so much, I can get 65mpg bimbling about sightseeing but given welly that can drop to low 40's, as it did on a trip to the Brittania rallies in Sweden & Denmark, over 2,200 miles I averaged 44mpg re onboard 'puter. I was loaded up with camping kit in 3 boxes so given the aerodynamics of a pig on stilts.

    Calculated on actual usage overall I'm getting 55mpg same as StevieP's Fuelly avg figure for his Gen2, so I'm happy with that. It's very similar to my '14 TS1050.

    2014 Tiger 800 XC here, and I'm averaging just over 56mpg working it out between each fills. Weirdly, the onboard computer thinks its less than that.
