When I picked mine up the dealer said it had 10 in the tank and the fuel light came on at around 100 miles. Ive filled it and I'm now at 150 miles in total. None of this is very scientific but I'll make a note of the exact milage next fill and let you know how I get on.
I'm using it for commuting as well as pleasure so I should give you an idea of what to expect in town....
I've ridden it carefully so far (new tyres and brakes etc) and not really been over 4k revs yet (its a lot of gear changes but surprisingly quick at low revs so still miles of fun)
I expect to do another 150 miles this week and will probably keep the revs to a limit of 5k.
The whole fuel economy thing is immaterial to me as it'll go down plenty when it's run in and being pushed a bit

I have had what I believe is really poor mileage from my tank. However, I'm basing it on doing 700+ and it feels like I've filled up the tank 10 times.
Though I don't actually know how many times it is, so filled her up the other day and did a reset to see. I'm assuming I'll be down the mpg list as I live quite central in London and get a fair amount of stop start and slow riding during peak hours. However, if over 45 mpg I'll be happy.

Maybe people may want to use Fuelly to keep track

Yesterday I filled her up with 10.4 liters with 209 kilometers on the dash.
The light hadn't come on yet, but I assume it was about to (my Monster had about the same tank and kept 3 liters in reserve).

About 20,1 kilometers per liter of fuel. That is allright, seeing as I did mostly short trips but of course during break-in I am taking it easy.

I predict that I will normally do 180-220 kilometers before the light comes on depending on how hard I push the bike. I would still have ~3 liters in the tank. With a silky wrist and going to all empty you should be looking at hitting the 300 kilometer mark (and then pushing ).

Maybe not so in real life.

280 range = 20,7 km per liter


175 range = 49 MPG us
280? that's near 65 miles per gallon. I don't know....

45 sounds accurate for an 800cc engine

280 kilometers on a tank is 48,5 miles per gallon

I did post my own thread on mpg - however I don't know how I am riding but got 60.9 mpg at last calculation! I am also running it in, and have done about 350 miles. I don't tend to ride everywhere at warp speed but didn't think I was that slow ..

If I can keep it around that figure I'll be happy

Let's all start using kilometers per liter
It is so confusing with the US gallon and the UK gallon for us from the mainland.

In the UK we use miles but the petrol is sold in litres. When I fill up I usually note the miles and how much fuel I've put in and get an instant result in my head of miles/litre. So if I get 10 miles to the litre that's just over 45 miles per Imp gallon. I think that's around 16 km/litre which at least is sensible. I could never get my head round European consumption figures quoted in litres per 100 km.
Once I get my Classic I'll let you know what it does.
