my milage is getting lower and lower. I started out getting 55mpg on 87 octane but now its down to 48. No idea why. I am thinking it might be the winter fuel mix. I know with my TU250 I could only get to 65mph during the winter as the fuel sucked and over 70mph in the summer. At least on the Vstrom you can still keep up with the traffic no matter what.

Mileage linked to temperature?

Default mileage

I live in Canada...the part of the world north of the USA, In my manual there is a statement that specifies 87 octane for Canada , which is regular gas for us. Midgrade must be used in the USA. I have tryed premium.... no difference except that I may have had better mileage because my wallet was lighter! Having travelled into NY I always filled up with midgrade. No issues. Some cars require premium for premium performance....

Fuel requirements are the same for USA and Canada, 87 (R+M)/2 or higher. 87 does fine. Over 5000ft, 85 does fine.
