    Sounds about normal to me. I'm getting 120 miles from a 25.00 tank of fuel
    Averaging 21p a mile.

    Sounds about right, Milles don't like being ridden sensibly, ride her like a loon and get better MPG!

    I don't understand how I get such good economy from mine? If I take it fairly steady on a long run (e.g. ~80mph on DCWs and motorways, 60 on A roads) I can get 55mpg from it without really trying. I went up to Pembrey a couple of weeks ago with a friend on his 996 (both loaded down with camping stuff) and gave it a proper thrashing and still managed 42mpg. I imagine shorter trips or a lot of riding in traffic would really drop it though.

    Some causes for high fuel consumption > Dirty fuel filter, Dirty Air Filter ( most high performance filters are washable ), High Gearing, Using unnecessarily high rpm when riding, Old spark plugs ( recommend Iridium ).

    I managed Edinburgh to Burghead on a tank of fuel which is 172 miles. The fuel light still hadn't even come on when I arrived so reckon I could get 200+ out of a tank easy.

    lol, worse than my old V2 02 Mille unless really thrashing it in 3rd/ 4th eevrywhere.
    Mind you ( even before the recent petrol price hikes)..my rsv4 used to cost 10 quid for 50 mile thrash, which is about 31 mpg. ( I turned off the average mpg on the display, it was too depressing haha)
    Im doing 1500 miles across europe on the v4..so thats 350-400 GBP at current prices!!!
    Sure you dont have a fuel leak?? lol
    ck

    Coming back to bikes after a 6 year stint with a Toyota supra, anything above 20mpg is a plus! I manage about 120 miles to a tank, consumption goes through the ceiling with plodding around town though
