Default Re: Gas consumption

There are many variables to gas consumption. Do you run throttle wide open all the time, are the roads you ride flat or hilly, are your tires properly inflated, are your tires wide or thin, gear ratio, fuel mixture, cheap gas, old gas, carb needle setting, exhaust bore narrowing with deposits, type of exhaust, dirty air filter, altitude, wind direction, worn rings, chain too tight, wheel bearings too tight. Probably more if I think hard enough.
