MPG of Townmate

Post  JohnW on Tue 25 Sep - 21:54

Just done a check on my T80's mpg. I filled the tank to the bottom of filler neck, rode 24 miles & put in 750 mls to bring it back up to mark, I make that 144 mpg. The roads covered were a mix of local roads, a 5 mile stretch of A road and included a hill (about 1 in 8 for 1/2 mile in 3rd gear). I did not go more that 40 mph on derestricted roads & 30 mph in speed limits. I weigh 14 stone & the bike has a windscreen. If you thrash it flat out 45-50 mpg I am sure the mpg will drop drasticly. I find 40 mph a comfortable criusing speed which a T80 can maintain easily.

144mpg, that's great! That's what the new Honda Visions are claimed to do with FI. Smile

MPG

Post  JohnW on Sat 6 Oct - 2:30

Have done another fuel consumption check on my T80. Slightly lower at 131 mpg (107 miles on 3.7 litres) still good though.
I would add that I have a windscreen fitted which believe it or not gives better aerodynamics & performance. Without the screen the bike used to do only 120 mpg.

Interesting to read the MPG that different riders get with a T80. I've been riding mine for around a month now, I often ride it flat out (45-55) due to having to keep up with traffic on my way to work. I use a £1 worth of fuel to do 20 miles. I think that's about 90 mpg.

better than 30 mpg I get from my car Very Happy
