Is it the old UK and USA gallon thing?

One imperial gallon is equivalent to approximately 1.2 U.S. liquid gallons.

So "your" 40 mp(us)g is "our" (40*1.2=) 48mp(uk)g.

Well I usually track almost all consumption activities on a excell sheet. It amuse me.

So for a complete tank.

Urban mode: 4.9 liters/100 km = 48.0 miles/gallon(US)
Touring mode: 4.2 liters/100 km = 56.0 miles/gallon(US)

I've made the test twice and these are the best results I've got. Myabe I get these numbers because of my driving style. I may be very gentle compare to your way. Who know's? Nobody is seeing eachothers way to drive to be able to compare. However I doubt it would have a huge effec on the consumption since this bike hasa ton of torque but my weight is around 172 pound (78 kilogram).

I run out a couple gears almost every chance I get. Faster traffic on the highway where I live runs 80-90 mph. I think the 40-50 miles I do at these speeds is biggest drain as the wind resistance is stiff up there; always have bags on, too.

I seem to get about 250km to reserve on a run (open road) which would give ~320km to empty. Typically 100 - 120km/hr on the open road, with a fair bit of stick in the windy bits.

In the city it is less, maybe 210 to reserve.

My gap between displayed and actual is not as big as that, more like a 5-7 mpg difference, but reality is always lower than what the computer displays.

My highest measured MPG was I think 55 or 56. Lowest was 29 MPG, from a full tank's worth of city street stop and go commuting.

200km to reserve light

I consistently get 200+/-10km before the reserve light comes on. I ran it to 310km once and think i put in about 15L so in theory could've made it to 320. Pretty sure I was in ST mode and was all 2 lane highway riding with lots of twisties involved. i have been very impressed with the fuel efficiency of the 821 motor.

When I first had the bike, I expected the light around 120 miles after a full tank. Recently, It tends towards 100 miles. I usually live down in Urban, with short hops into sport when I need the throttle response.

I find it odd that urban mode is the weakest, and that's when I need the ability to scoot away from deranged cage drivers at a moment's notice.
