Thumbs up Good gas mileage

Have an '07 Wee with 19k on the clock and consistently get mid to hi 50's mpg. Usually cruz in the 65 - 75 mph bracket and commute 90 miles to work one way. Am usually hauling a stuffed tankbag, rollbag and CCTT (CheapChineseTravelTrunk). Only performance mod is a BMC airfilter.

Default Recent 3 tanks

I just rolled over 3,000 on my '09 Wee and the last 3 tanks averaged 54 MPG. I've got my screen removed and nothing else that should impace MPG. Most driving is slab at 60-80 indicated on my 50 mile r/t commute. Need to get more twistie rides in.

R.I.P. (Retire In Peace, thanks for the great ride.)

My mileage has gone to shit due to ethanol gas. That said, I'm still doing OK. Just dialed in 49mpg - but this after a valve adjustment, new filter and plugs.

Just put a Shinko 705 on the front, and I hear that drops mileage a bit. We'll see.

Wink Observations

I have an 07 wee with approximately 18,000 miles and am an older rider. For most of the time I have lived in Texas and recently relocated to the Seattle area. In Texas I always got over 50 to 54 mpg, however, if I went to Big Bend and ran 80+mph, then mileage could/would dip below 50mpg. Note, back roads of Texas are generally 70 mph and people drive at least the speed limit and then some. Now for Seattle, I live in Everett and most back roads have a speed limit of 25-45 mph. Even the Washington freeways are only 60mph. Consequently, I have recorded 61mpg tanks here and have concluded that speeds play the major part in mpg; not a new discovery.

Of course, there is also the thought that maybe the cold wet weather of the northwet is responsible for the better mileage but I doubt it.

Default still tight, new bike

Nearly at the 6,000 klms service mark on this L2 DL 650
Average from all fuel-ups is equiv. to US_58.42 mpg (4.021 litres/100klm)-- using non ethanol fuel of 91 or 95 octane (base standard and one step above). Stats from last tank was the best one yet -- due to the high percent of slow gravel road travel in amongst higher speed country tar road running -- US_63.127 MPG (3.726 L/100klms).
Nice mileage, very pleasing
