First 1.000km until oil change: 5,7 L/100km (constant gear change and light accelerations)
Following 600km: 4,8 L/100km. Average speed of 68 km/h in national roads, with no aggressive riding. Just me riding, 68kg.

Just as a curiosity; the computer presented 5,0 L/100km, my calculation was 4,8 L/100km, and for sure the oil company is not filling more than is charging. The odometer have a difference of less tan 1% compared with the GPS.

Funnily enough I was noticing the same thing on my NC750X last night. Computer said 74.7 mpg (imperial) and the actual calculated was 75.6 mpg You usually expect the error to be the other way

I always found it a bit of a pain to enter the data at every stop.
Input using the Fuelly app on my iPhone. Pretty straight forward.

When I do my best, and this means : I drive fluently within legal speed limts and pay a littje bit of attention to acceleration (it means : not always accelerate lag a dragracer, but following the traffic) I come to a 4,6 l / 100 km !!! After 4000 km, in the beginning it was much higher. I must say a do normal traffic, about 200 km a trip, with some 12 traffic lights and traffic jams in it.

I have achieved 58mpg imperial on my last two tanks. I got less than that from the first tank as I was running in and revved the motor freely. I now have 2500kms on it and am using the torque of the motor and short shifting on my favoured backroads, hence the improved consumption. I rarely use main roads or motorways. I am not known to be a slow rider among my friends but I never thrash the motor either.

I'm seeing about 45mpg with spirited driving, and just near 60mpg when on longer trips in groups where we are mainly just cruising for a full tank. This is with a DCT in D mode for the trips, and usually S2 when having fun.

When I'm in a car I can't wait to get there. When I'm on a bike I can't wait to not get there. -RR

I have 1,000 miles on mine now and have never calculated better than 45 MPG

The on board MPG reading does not correspond to me doing the math with miles and how many gallons it takes to fill back up

I am using 87 octane fuel

Has anyone tried higher octane fuel to improve MPG?

Some data. Note that the onboard 'computer' is way off in it's consumption calculations - probably due to the exaggerated speedo hence odometer........
