pffft... do the math, it's not going to be significant on a motorcycle... even if you commute on it considering how much it costs to maintain a desmo twin.its more like saving close to 40 center per gallon. that adds up.
Now that would be a funny sight if you have someone pumping gas into your bike while you are seated on it.thisnjducquacks said:in nj its like 35 cents more...so yea lol thats where and we have the cheapest gas! and they pump for us! go figure
Last time I checked w/ 87 I was getting 57mpg. At first I thought I was crazy, other listers totally ignored my posts and everyone was reporting 45mpg or so. Glad to know my math skills are still semi-functional.ST4R said:and each tank the mpg got better, going up to 50, then 52, and finally 55mpg tank after tank for a week.
The US uses a completely different method for determining octane ratings than you Aussie's...mals900ss said:can I get in??? Not a super bike but maybe you guys can shed something on this.. In Australia our choices are 91.. std ; 95 Premium basic ; 98 Premium premium.. ; Optimax. ( a shell 98 more dense) but that you only gain if you have an 02 sensor which my SS doesn't have.
NOW... When I use 95 I get about 226km before low fuel light.
use 98 I get about 205 km B L F L..
on 91 I get about 240 - 250 B L F L..
There is no variation between hills, twisty or normal.
oh year.. PER LITRE.. 91 + 6 cents = Premium... 91 = 10 cents = 98...
