Whats your MPG?

I'm curious to find out what everyones average MPG is. I get around 25-30 MPG highway, and it just seems low. I dont press to hard so I wanted to do some comparing.

Thanks,
Sepias

Also include if your bike is jetted of not please.

Depends on riding style and which bike.

F2: 42-65mpg
RR: 33mpg

Mines not too bad. Keeping it under 10K cruising around - 35mpg.

10K plus I don't even bother to check it.

I average every tank. Too hard to keep up with whether I'm cruzin' or hammering on a per tank basis. Overall, I get around 30 on my F3.

What kinda gas do you use? I run 93 in mine, that might make a difference of a couple MPG. Checked your air filter lately? Restriced air flow is a killer on mileage..

I only run 93 or 100. The air filter was just changed all of 100 miles ago, it was put in when I had the bike in the shop for alot of work. The MPG has gone up a bit from before it went into the shop. I was getting around 90 to my 4g tank and I'm getting around 100 now. I have had one ocasion were I got over 36 mpg but that was on a cross state ride. Ehh o well, if I was realy looking to save on gas, I would be riding a scooter...

Thanks again,
Sepias

It bugs me cuz my car gets better milage but owell. I'm guessing its something about the way the bike is made or a previous owner did something to it. Ehh o well its still real fun to ride.
