First topic message reminder :

Hi all
After a couple of months of hassle free and enjoyable commuting on my swing I am getting pretty consistent mileage out of a tank of fuel. I’m getting 140 miles before the fuel bar starts to flash. Just wandering what everyone else is getting, and also how many miles is left in it before it stops when it starts flashing? Looking forward to reading your comments. My riding is in mixed traffic and I do like to open it up a bit on clear roads.

I get 120/130 when bar flashes. One gallon left is what I seem to be finding. Last full up bar was flashing and it held 3.2 gallons this tank I'm riding more efficient as to check mileage.

A steady throttle hand and smooth traffic is the key to good fuel economy.

Also my rule of thumb has always been to first fill the tank to the brim. Zero the trip meter, and keep an eye on the fuel gauge beginning ~45 miles on that trip meter. Then the full bar drops down to the next increment take note of the trip meter. That will be the effective miles per gallon.

That rule of thumb certainly works on a trip. But ‘round town and stop & go traffic kinda changes that calculation.

On two occasions I’ve gotten over 208 miles on a full tank. On both occasions that was using non-ethanol gas. And one time traveling at interstate speeds.

Anytime you exceed 5000 rpm fuel economy drops off proportional to increase in rpm.

YMMV

I also use non ethanol gas. I didn't buy my swing for economy but reliability. I have 4 v8 trucks and 40 mpg is nice. But the freedom you get when you ride is priceless!
