fuel consumption

I have a tiger avon with a 1000 rr fireblade engine.i am getting about 18 mpg which seems a bit low.But am not sure if is or not.Just wondering what other people are getting with similar cars.

locost, 1700 xflow is about 27-35 depending on how i drive it
but i do get 59mpg with my mondeo!





Thats was probably spelt wrong, or had some grammer, that the "grammer police have to have a moan at

When I had my 'busa and got stuck on a very long section of roadworks on the M4 (constant 40mph), I got 72mpg

My 3.9 V8 locost did about 28 - but that was due to 3.92 diff, would've got nearer 50mpg with the 2.28 I was planning on using

I'd say 18 mpg is not too bad. Maybe low 20's might be a little more respectable. If you consider the stock bike does 35-38 mpg, the fact it's in a car which is likely to be >double weight of bike and the fact you'll probably drive like like you have just stolen it........I think 18 mpg is okay.

I race in RGB, and although I had never taken the time to work out the fuel consumption of my CBR1000RR, I was told last weekend at Snetterton that I should be expecting to use circa 600ml every minute when driving at full tilt. This will help me massively I have to say to keep a handle on keeping the car weight down. So when you work out the mpg here it's roughly 11.5 mpg. But this is with a race set up I.e. tuned exhaust, mods to air box and dyno'd to an inch of its life....

I get around 25mpg from my R1 Fury in normal use. I can push it to 30 with steady driving or as low as 15 on track.

You don't buy these cars for the fuel consumption......
