2005 Suzuki C50 Boulevard. 5 speed shaft. All stock.
46-54 mpg based on two fill ups. The lower fill up after puttering around in town. The higher on the highway doing 55-70 mph. I average 60-65 mph going to and from work.
The dealer said mid to high 40s mpg. I was there today, told him what I was getting and he said some people report the same.
Quick question, what's the best way to measure your gas mileage? When I fill up, I pull the hose guard back so I can see how much gas is in the tank, and I never top it off, so how do you measure the number of gallons you've used over a certain distance?
In my car I try to go to the same pump and set it to auto, when it clicks off that's when it's done filling and I take the reading of gallons put in.
Fill your tank full. (Up to the top of the nozzle restrictor)
Reset your trip odometer, or write down your miles.
Ride ride ride. Ride some more. (Until nearly empty)
Fill your tank again to the same spot.
Note the number of gallons it took to fill.
Divide the miles ridden by the number of gallons it took to fill the tank. The answer is your MPG.
