Just filled up
distance covered 175 km or 109 miles
cost to top up £9.20 @ cost per litre £1.36 = so 6.7 litres or 1.4 gallons
ergo
109 miles uses 1.4 gallons which equates to 77 mpg

My KTM 390 adventure give me about 25 km/ liter when driven leisurely . Crank it up and I get around 16 to 18 kmpl.

Did you zero that out for that tank or is that the average for the total miles? At first I didn't realize my Indian was accumulating total average for total miles. I started zeroing it out so I'd know per tank what the mpg was. Made a huge difference.

42 mpg, day in, day out.
I think that is darned good for a bike that weighs over 900 pounds and has a 1500 cc engine.
....and I'm not very easy on the throttle either.

;-) On this side of the "pond" ;-) we are metricated. '83 Suz 850G, 500,000 kms old, and average between 5.6 to 6.5 Litres per 100 kms. Depending on the seasonal winds and road speed. On the LONG road = 100 kms, it will drop to 5.1 Litres per 100 kms. I have forgotten how to do the conversion for y'all on that side of the water.

Part of me does not care less about mpg since I ride for fun, not for economy. My 2021 CanAm Spyder RT gets in the low 30's, which is even lower than my former ride, a Honda Goldwing was doing which routinely was at about 37 mpg. If I want economy I can ride my Honda PCX 150 which gets between 90 and 110 mpg even with the throttle pegged fully open for about 90% of the time I am riding.

Well, even though it’s 1900cc I typically get about 42mpg highway. It does however like running at about 45 in 4th or 5th on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Was getting 57mpg running like that. My best friend riding an 06 Ultra Classic gassed up same time as me. He had to pull off the parkway for gas and I still had over half a tank left. 🤣🤣
He was kinda upset.
