Today filled the gas tank on my CT for the second time. I am not perfect at filling to the exact level each time so this will be an ongoing averaging for me. One gallon 140 miles

I did my first fill the other day and it came out to 126mpg. But not sure if the tank was totally full from the dealer, so I will have a better idea after a few fill ups.

I agree a few fill ups will be a better determination

has anyone confirmed the 1.4 gallons till empty yet?
My last fill up was 1.3 gal. My fuel light had been blinking for about 30 miles before I finally made it to a gas station. I was sweating it and was sure I was gonna run out before I got there. I meant to fill up before I started the trip (all back roads) but forgot and didn't even think about it until the fuel light started blinking. Didn't even know it would do such a thing. :)

Good to know! Thanks for testing that out for us!

Barely run in & getting 250km to 5 litres -> 156 miles/1.4 USG -> 110 mpg. Plenty of spirited riding through the gears but very little wide open for more than a mile or two. I thought fitting knobbies (Vee Rubber 2.75/17) might eat into the mileage but I guess using more gravel routes, I’m actually travelling a bit more slowly.

Last 2 fillups I got 114 and 115 mpg. That includes a bit of offroad riding so I'm very pleased with the results.

It’s the fuel light stock or did you add a gauge??

I’m at one block left on the gauge and 140 or so miles. Was looking at total range and I fill cans at the ethanol free station so I don’t really know how much it will take accurately out of a can…

I'm guessing he means the stock gauge. Mine did the same blinking thing too. I wasn't near my ethanol free station, so I just put a dollar in it to keep me on the road and tanked up the next day. I've given up on keeping track of fuel mileage after 1100 miles. When people ask me how good it is I just say "Awesome!"

Yes, stock. It will start the last bar blinking.......I'm guessing when it's on the "reserve fuel".

About 140 miles and she was cutting out today, last square in the gauge has been flashing. Will fill her to the top with ethanol free tomorrow, from a can, not sure how full it was last time, wasn’t topped off
