What kind of milage are you getting on your 1098 or 1198?

I have an 07 1098 with a PCIII and a Kyle map. I had told Dan that I ride a lot of distance on the bike so he leaned it out a bit in the cruise rpm range. I typically get about 43 mpg in mixed riding and I've seen 48 mpg cruising long distance at 70-75 mph. On one ride with some friends on their Harleys I got 53 mpg but they were only running a leisurely 65 mph. I have seen a low of 36 mpg when riding harder.

My 2011 1198 only has about 2000 miles on it right now so the motors still real tight. I'm seeing around 35mpg but that's a mix of highway and spirited twisties.

How large is the tank in the 10/1198?

The original tank on the 1098 was 4.1 gallons. My tank was replaced under warranty a few weeks ago due to swelling. Ducati admits that the tank was reshaped to reduce the impact of swelling but I also have a suspicion that the new tank might be smaller. I thought I saw somewhere that the 1198 tank was 3.7 gallons. The Ducati NA rep I spoke to did not know if the tank was still 4.1 gallons. He admitted he had an aluminum tank mounted on his 848.
