It's running in traffic is the mpg killer! Lots of acel/decel up and down through the gears city riding makes about a 10mpg difference to riding for a trip for me!

I get somewhere between 40-50 on my 2012 t100. If I go total freeway then I get a little bit more. I think I did somewhere around 160 miles once with mainly freeway riding (70-75 mph).

Based on my riding conditions I think 33 mpg is OK unless you all feel there is something wrong with the bike?
Lot of up hill & curvy roads where I live, LA traffic sucks - stop & go, traffic lights every 1/4 mile, stop signs every corner, freeways turns into parking lots. Thought I get ok milage for LA?

On Thanksgiving I tooled down the 14 from Lancaster, left the Hollywood Fwy at Lankersheim, rode Mulholland to Coldwater Cny to dinner. Reversed the same and gassed up in Sylmar. Got 42mpg and I DON'T spare any of the horses.

I routinely get 45 mpg regardless of the style of riding. In theory, I could go 180 miles. It seems like the get fuel light comes on at about 115 to 120 miles almost every ride. So I am always filling the tank at around 135 miles and I put in 3 gallons.

So last week while we were still having nice weather here in the Mile Hi City I decided to run through a tank of fuel riding solely in the city to see what fuel mileage I got. I rode on streets that were traffic light controlled in downtown traffic during different times of the day as well side streets with lots of stops signs. I deliberately never got above 3rd gear, 1st gear roll outs were 5k+ rpm's before upshifting, and maintained rpm's in the 3,500-6000 rpm range in 2nd and 3rd gear. I was always running hot so to speak...my low fuel indicator started flickering around 115-120 miles and it came on hard at 130 miles. I topped off at 133.5 miles on the clock and I pumped 3.378 gallons. According to my math I acheived 39.52 miles to the gallon. I guess I wasn't surprised with my fuel consumption based on how I chose to ride given my conditions. My Bonnie has mod's which I am assuming attributes to getting better fuel consumption over a stock Bonnie...dunno. I typically get 43-45mpg with a mix of city and canyon running. I just thought I would post my results in the event anyone gives a hoot...hahaha

My 2012 has been getting just under 40, though I only have a few hundred miles on her so far, and this is almost all canyon road riding. Not really concerned one way or the other, since it's just a pleasure-rider.

Im sure a seasoned engine also helps with improved fuel mileage as well as mod's that free up the engine allowing it to breathe. I'm just about at 20,000 miles and to be honest I can't remember what I was getting on my Bonnie when it was new...I'm sure I didn't care all that much...still don't unless I was to run out...grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr Thankfully that has yet to happen.

I was consistently getting 43 MPG and have since dropped to around 35MPG. Driving is exactly the same, other than I may be getting a little more wrist into it. I have been frustrated, but not too much since I have so much fun.

mostly do back road twisty riding these days, very little in town & maybe 20-30% highway riding, currently 1700 miles on the bike & use 93 octane w/10% ethanol in this state, always ride 1 up & I weigh 165#, mods are suspension front & rear & Epco exhausts, very consistently averages 47mpg never got over 50mpg & never less than 45mpg, but if I did more highway riding I could easily get probably 60mpg at least, that averages to 197 miles per tank, fuel icon consistently comes on @ 120-130 miles & takes about 2.7-3.0 gal to fill up
