So last weekend I emptied the tank.. And filled it up with 8.2 Litres £9.90 (Texaco I was stuck for choice) Set the clock and went on reserve this evening at 85 Miles.. seemed a little low MPG. 

I've go those Jardine slash cuts which might make a difference and my riding style can be a bit on the aggressive side, that and I did see how fast it went down the M25 (I was surprised it wasn't as quick top end as I thought it would be. In fact just a bit quicker than my thumper although not as strained and I could have pushed it a bit more)

Is that about average MPG or do I just ride like a complete idiot?

thanks Skid

Oh how much reserve do I get..? judging by what I've seen about 5 minutes

Hi Skidoo, 8.2 Litre's is 1.82 Gallons so you've returned 46.70 Miles per Gallon, Not bad considering you ragged it down the M25 and your riding style is Aggressive  VS800 MPG 3498837457  What's the capacity of the VS tank?

Ah ok.. 

No idea Simbo.. I've read 2.7 Gallons on average.. so that'll be 12 Litres give or take..

12-8.2=3.8 litres left in the tank.. (0.8 gallons)

erm.. 

So that gives me a 37 Mile reserve... I think...

I was crap a Maths.. It didn't feel like I had a 37 Mile reserve range.

My daily riding routes are mostly A roads and the odd by-pass so plenty of opportunity to use that torque I have and wizz through the traffic..

Thanks Simbo.. I guess I need to be a little more easy on the throttle..
