How far on a tank of fuel?
« on: March 25, 2015, 09:22:51 PM »
Just fuelled up my CBR500 for the second time and was thrilled to go past the 200 miles mark (204 to be precise) and all for the princely sum of £12.95  :152: I wasn't sure the CBR would pass the 200 mile mark as I know the tank is smaller than the X I had although from memory I used to regularly see around 240 miles before fill up. Either way I am one happy chap  :030: :169: You have to love these little 500's  :062:

I'm halfway through my second tank at 300 miles and change. Did 190 odd on the first one before the low fuel thingy came on. That was gentle mostly town commuting and a few junctions worth of m-way. Not worked it out but the average fuel widget is sitting at 60.My ER6 only did low 40s to the gallon so I'm quite chuffed.

I eeked 236 out of my last tank. That was with some pretty hard riding throughout and only trying to conserve at the end! I was bricking it though as my fuel indicator was flashing like crazy along with my Gallon indicator showing 0!

I'm at 450 mileish at mid 60s UK which is more than acceptable for where/how I'm riding. That gives me 180 to the F/R tank without pushing into reserve.

One of the reservations I had changing from the X to the CBR was losing a 200 mile tank range. Well I am delighted that over the 1,300 miles I have done so far every tank has managed over 200  :047: The latest tank was the furthest yet with me clocking 239 miles before filling up. The low level was flashing and 0.2 gallons displayed. Fuelled up with the princely sum of £15.40 which at £1.159 L gives 2.92 Gal = 81.85 mpg. The more I ride and enjoy the 500 twin the more I am in awe of it. Whatever guise it is a genuinely great motorcycle  :001:
