An iPhone app eh.......I was startin to think you have waay too much time on your hands.


I didn't buy the F800 for it's fuel economy. Which is probably just as well.

Fully loaded with wife and camping gear I could get better mileage from my Japanese AWD SUV.....well....it's pretty damn close.


But it aint half as much fun.

Alone at constant 70mph and only the topbox I've see as good as 75mpg (UK) with a tailwind... Fully loaded, 2 up with panniers filled with camping gear + waterproof bags strapped on top, I've had as low as 38mpg uphill into the wind during a rainstorm. According to the onboard computer I average 49mpg when only commuting in London and around 60mpg on long journeys. Can't complain, for its size and how it performs - it's not a world away from what people get slogging/bagging on a 125cc scooter, and far better than I ever got on a 4-cylinder Honda Hornet.

Umm... I have a 2013. Or did you not notice my sig line?
I was referring to the fact he stated a 2103 model in his subject line. I guess you missed that too.

Every time I fill up I figure my MPG. Trip mileage from last fill up divided by gallons held. I've been averaging 49-53 depending on how much 2up with the wife or my son. I'm very pleased with the mileage.

According to the onboard computer 5.2L per 100km.

For the most part it tends to be fairly spirited riding.

Didn't your dealer tell you? The onboard computer is for entertainment purposes only.

But the lights are so pretty


All honesty, so far I would guess I could manage 300km's on a tank.

At least. I get 300kms when riding highway all the way at 130kmh with some 150kmh to overpass.

If you're riding mixted style you're getting 350 kms.
and riding at 90 kms you almost get 400kms

I as well get almost 400km on highway at 110-120 km/h. But riding with knobies and a 15T front sprocket.
On commuting, about 300 km. So in my case it's an average of 4 to 5 L/100km.

As for trail riding it can go up to 8L/100km.

Just about finished a 2,500 mile run to the Alps and back, 2-up fully loaded with panniers and Heidenau K60 Scouts I've averaged 60mpg on the nose to date—impressive considering the steep mountain passes we've crossed and a few 100mph blasts down the German autobahn.

Guys, just got my bike, 80 miles so far and I'm averaging 38mpg, not easy on the throttle but not hard either and staying within the break in limits. Mostly city miles. Is that to be expected?

Yes, it seems to improve after a few thousand miles.

[QUOTE=Lobby;8454290]How accurate are the speedometers / odometers? Traditionally, BMW meters have been waaay off.

If you base your MPG off a faulty odo, you're gonna get a bad number.

Anybody doing this calc with a GPS?[/QU

My OD IS 3% SLOW. My speed is about 2% fast. Checked with zumo 550

average fuel economy

with 12k kms on the odo and a 200 lb rider and gear, 80/20 usage (with the 80 being 1/2 highway and 1/2 city and the 20 being light off road) sometimes with pelicans, sometimes no pelicans I'm averaging:

21.5 kmpl x 16l = 344 km
50.6 mpg (usa) x 4.2 = 213 miles
60.8 mpg (uk or old style canada) x 3.5 = 213 miles

as a rule I'm looking for fuel before i get to 300km.

as a comparison, my street legal drz 400e averages 55 mp canadian gallon.

I consistently see 54-55 MPG (US), mostly highway, 220lbs with hard cases. I've seen as good as 65 mpg depending on how easy I am with the throttle on the hwy.
Mileages are hand calculated based of reset of trip computer at each fill up.
