Not sure what the calculation is but, over here in aust.

I get average 5.1-5.6 litres per 100km during commuting (Depending on if I'm late ill give it a bit more)
Freeway at constant 100km/h it drops to 3.5 to 4litres.

This is a F650gs with no bag or anything, just me.. how many miles do you get from full to the reserve light coming on? I get about 220km's - 136miles.

I'm getting around 300km until fuel light comes on. According to OBC, mileage is around 55-60mpg.
In 5th gear, at 90kmph, the OBC reports 70 - 80 mpg. If ridden hard, mpg drops to ~35mpg

Average over the last 2200 miles of mostly two-lane, rural roads is 49 mpg. Vario side cases always on and usually loaded.

I usually get in the mid 40's running my caribou cases at about 85mph

If I slow down, I can get it over 50

Going through Yellowstone last fall, From Cooke City to Jackson Hole, I got about 64MPG!!! Wife got in the low 70s with her 658. Thats what 45mph all day will do... I kept wanting to stop for gas, but gauge wasnt going down, I thought it was broken. Then when I filled up, wasn't even near empty!!

42.5 MPG to start with...2013 F800GS

Units: Miles per US gallons
Trip Meter: 85 miles
Rider: 6' 180 lbs
Luggage: None
Windscreen: Stock
Exhaust: Stock
Riding Conditions: 80% Forest Service Dirt Roads, 10% Asphalt, 10% Single Track & Jeep Roads, 100% beautiful New Mexico sky. Not shy on the throttle.

Results of short 85 mile ride: 42.5 mpg according to the 2 gallons it took me to refuel. If I took it easy on the throttle...less fun but probably better MPG. I'll have to try it sometime...

Firstly: How did you get a 2103 model already?
Secondly: How the hell are you getting such high mileage? How are you doing your calculations?

Filling the fuel tank up all the way, on the sidestand..
Dividing the Trip Odometer mileage by the number of gallons pumped..
So far, the trip odometer is pretty accurate compare to the posted miles between cities.
My overall average on a weekend trip to Dawson City, YT was just a hair over 58 miles per gallon... and I ride FAST.

Haven't posted on this thread before. 2010 800GS, white, Jesse panniers, TT fairing, running in the 4k RPM range. Doing back roads dirt and pave, mountain twisties and some highway. HighTechCoonass booster ECM plug. Fill up with bike on sides stand and fill very full each time. Occasional use of either SeaFoam or Techron.

Until last year lived in the Denver area and mileage was about 58 or so. Not heavy on the throttle so that helped some.

Moved to Durango area and have been running 91 octane non-ethanol gas and with same type riding am getting a consistent 72 - 78 miles per gallon. Sometimes ride home from station and then put on a short ride of about 65 miles or so and then hit the station again and barely even able to get a gallon in the tank.

The '13 models are available in stores NOW.
Mine was built in December of 2012
. Fuel mileage calculation is the same as for the Buell, KLR, and several other motorized gasoline burning vehicles

Riding through Wyndoming and Uwindtah twice the low fuel light came on at 107 miles. Loaded from the COBDR doing 75-80 mph. Rough trip for sure.
If anyone ever says the F8 has more power than a sane person can ever use? I just knew someone stole a cyclinder.

59 mpg

2013 F800GS / 59.3 MPG
Units: Miles per US gallons
Trip Meter: 162 miles
Rider: 6' 170 lbs + 20 lbs gear
Luggage: 15 lbs.
Windscreen: Stock
Exhaust: Scorpion
Altitude: 6,000 to 7,000 feet
Riding Conditions: 85% Dirt Roads, 15% Asphalt, 100% beautiful New Mexico sky. Not shy on the throttle on the way home.

I am surprised!! A ride I took months ago was 42 MPG - albeit much rougher, enduro-ish terrain. Maybe the 2013 is breaking in?? I just hit about 1600 miles. Maybe just easier roads...maybe I'm smoother on the throttle...don't know. I'm just happy knowing that if I had to, I could probably count on 50 MPH taking it easy on dirt roads.

Mileage

I am always amazed at how g0od the mileage is on this bike. In my usual mixed riding of ATV trails and gravel roads I always get between 4.3 and 5 l/100km. That is 54 to 47 mpg for US gallons. ANd that always includes some first gear slogging and lots of 3rd gear trails.

50 mpg after 52,000 miles

I've had the bike for almost 5 years now, with just a hair over 52,000 miles on the clock, riding in just about any kind of conditions you can imagine. I've kept track of every fill up with a little app on my iPhone, and after 50,000 miles I dumped the numbers into a spreadsheet to create this chart.



The best mileage I ever got was 63.27 mpg (while riding along the Continental Divide, at low speed and high altitude), which would have given me a theoretical range of about 265 miles, or 426 km.

The worst I ever got was 36.30 mpg. I can't remember where that was, but I'm guessing it was somewhere out in the desert, riding into a fierce headwind with Caribou panniers mounted, and wringing the poor thing's neck. That tank would have only given me 152 mi./244 km.
