What mpg are you getting?

Wondering what others are getting on their 10s and what might be expected.

With my setup, recent trip up the foothills (flats & twisties) I averaged 23.4 mpg. Not racing or tapping into the power range, but on the throttle quite a bit in the torque ranges.

I average 30-35mpg on relatively conservative riding.

just commuting 30mi one way to work. all highway I was getting 32ish. With full Leo system and pc3 I am getting 40. I am running the akra map. the leo map that came with the software was a little lean and was making me nervious. It was getting 45mpg but didn't pull hard on the top end and I was afraid of being too lean up top. You can't hear the detonation at full song.

Im getting about 25 mpg most of the time. Gen 2, Power Comm, Yoshi slip ons, K&N air filter and a few other add on.. Im not to concerned about the mileage but that blinking "Fuel" "Fuel" "Fuel" on my speedo does seem to come on often.

Around 35 mpg typical street riding and commuting. Much less with more exuberant riding.
