On a particularily slow tank of gas (hours of the hardest rain ever) in Vermont, I actually obtained 73mpg. This using Cdn volumes.

Generally, long trips average me around 58ish, again Cdn.

Cheers!

I used AccuFuel for a while, but I've found something better: Road Trip. It's more expensive ($5) but it's both easier to use and more capable. There's also a Lite version of Road Trip if you want to try it out before paying.

jokermtb I've got an '06 that I regularly get between 51-54 mpg, and still manage to pass many a car on my two-lane road daily commute.....great gas mileage, and spunky performance!

gas mileage

I have an 09 wee and it has averaged 65mpg on every tank except the last one when I had my wife along, that dropped it to 62. I live in Tn and ride the twisties with some other bikes and can keep up with any of them, so I'm not out running slow down a straight flat road. And yes, I do know how to figure fuel mileage.

bananaman Is it the newer (dual plug) V-Strom's that get the better mpg? My 2004 wee gets around 45 just puttin' along. Guess I need to check the valves.

Just put in new plugs and did my valves (all my exhaust were on the tight side). We'll see if anything has changed (probably not...).
Are you using a iPhone app for this? Which one?
