Default Gas mileage

I was wondering can anyone give me a real accurate estimation on their gas consumption. 100 to 150 seems kinda right, but everyone says "about this or about that" without anything backing them up.

I guess the best estimation would be if someone has gone 50-70 miles on a 2L tank and ran it completely empty.

I've found that the 2-stroke engines get about 80 MPG on average.
Mine are usually ported & riden at WOT... so my findings are going to be a little different from 'bone stock' engines.

Default Re: Gas mileage

my gas mileage varies wildly.

if i fill up the big stock tank and go for a ride all day, i get about 50-60 miles.

if i ride it back and forth to work, 3.5 miles each way, usually when it's cold and i don't let it warm up, i can get as low as 25-30 miles to the tank.
