I to am very impressed with the GTs fuel economy,recently on our trip the Phillip Island GP
I recorded just about everything,here are the stats,travelled 7070KM,Fueled up 28 times,used 328.20lts,cost $557.10,and averaged 4.83lts per 100km,all three panniers
chocka block full,two up with the wife on the back,most times we travelled about with in speed limit,were flashed by the Rozzers three times and pulled up once for a breath test and licence check,wont say what we did the 90 mile straight in time but it was quick
,one group we were chating to blasted it out in 43 min.
The Triumph Sprint GT is certainly a mile muncher that does it in comfort,one very bloody happy owner here
Cheers spud

I am encouraged by the fuel mileage GT owners are seeing as I hope to join you soon by picking one up this winter.

If my conversion is correct 100km=62.13 miles,,4.83lts=1.27gallons close to 62 miles per gallon for our trip,that is very impressive,one big

I've done 2,600km on mine now. The computer tells me it is averaging 5.3 l/100km 53.29 imp m/g. I thought it might do better than that, but it isn't bad. Do you reckon it might improve as the motor frees up?

I've been averaging about 48mpg (US) with 6K on the clock in mixed riding. I haven't noticed any significant improvement with age, but what I have noticed is that if riding gets spirited, the mpg's drop off pretty quickly. I can get right on Triumph's estimated MPG for both city and highway as long as I'm not too heavy on the throttle.

I must say, I'm impressed that such a big heavy bird as the GT can average 50-59MPG......

If I don't rag the RS, she'll do 53/55................but, still mighty impressive MPG considering the weight of the GT....the gearing/fairing must be spot on,mechanically and aerodynamically................

It depends much on how you drive. But I suspect it uses a leanburn for low loads. I have seen averages on mine below 4l/100km cruisin in 90-100kph. This was when I broke it in already.

I usually average 5.4 L / 100kms on my GT, solo or two up in the hills.

Cheers
