I got 45.0 mpg on my last tank. I've averaged 40.8 over the life of the bike and the most I ever got before on a tank was 41.8. Hope this trend continues. It's not like I rode it any different. Same ol commute to work.

I did. Stopped at an ol timey station out in the middle of no where on the way to work because his prices are 10 cents cheaper than everyone else. He still has the old pumps with number dials instead of the digital displays. I avoided getting gas here before because I thought to myself, "How long does the gas sit in his tanks before the tanker comes to refill. That gas has gotta be old."

Pretty cool place. He has a 10x10 room sectioned off in the station with a window unit to keep it cool. The only products are big grab chips and soda. The rest of the store is his mechanic shop.

The more twisties I drive the lower my mpg goes. I went on 2 separate 200 mile day runs that were equal hwy & twisties/mountain & got 47mpg. My last tank with no hwy was 40mpg. I've had my bike 3 1/2 weeks, driven 1,400 miles and averaged 41mpg overall. My worst tank was 35mpg but what a ride that was ;D

or weather... if you fill your tank up when it is really hot... then you will actually get less fuel than if you filled up when it has cooled down in the evening or early morning

I've been filling up in the morning when it's only 80 degrees. Speaking of weather it hit 107 today. One hot mofo on the way home. Especially on the highway.

I had a day like that. Figured the wind in your face would help but when its that temp there is no relief. Its like holding a hair dryer in fron tof your face.

Here in Portland Oregon we have not seen a 90 or higher temp yet this year but we may get one tomorrow. My ride to work is low 50s, ride home is normally in the 60s. At least it hasn't been raining much the last month.
