Been leaving the truck at home 95% of the time and riding the two bikes......
mostly the KLR650. I'm finding that with the way I'm flogging the single, I'm getting 50mpg every tank, easy. I'm gonna get me a tankful and ride it conservatively and see what the top mileage I can get is. I've never done that, cause quite often I'm on the hiway running about 75mph(actual).
Now the 10R. I've run it somewhat lighter than normal as of late. I don't know, it's nice to keep her under a hundred. I've broken 40mpg on a number of tankfulls as of recent. My previous mileage always stayed at 33mpg. I'm wonde3ring if I can hit 45 on this thing.
Anyway, my truck gets 11mpg no matter what I do. I think that GM designed in a gas dumper. It activates when your mileage goes up for reasons of conservation, the system detects this and pours raw gas into the muffler and exits it out the tailpipe. Just a thought.

Funny you mentioned this - The fam and I went to the Outer banks this past weekend and I got the best milage my truck has ever gottne. Coming and going I got 16mpg ! Using BP 87 octane fuel and oil that was clsoe to time for chaning, and using the cruise control ( set at between 65 and 75 mph ).I cant figure out why its getting better milage ? Maybe the closer to sea level air ?
Considering I was doing 1:25s to 1:23.8s and about 155/160 on the straights, Im not complaining !
where is that done at?? VIR if so them's some pretty good times arent they!!
I almost said sheesh he floggs the wee out of that bike just to be driving to work...
My BMW got 64ish when first got it and has been declining to 59ish and I am hoping the weigh of oil has something to do with it, cause by the butt dyno on highway since after changing oil the first time it seems a little down in power. Most guys either put 10-40 or 20-50 weight i think might be 5-20 but i grabbed 10-40 got to do some research before the next oil change. Course the real problem is i've been trying to loft the front like the 9'er miss that bike every now and then
