i got 55 mpg on my first tank on my '05. this is assuming that the tank was completely full (it seemed like it was) and that the speedo/odo is accurate (which i have read it isnt).

I got 48 mpg on the 1st tank and 52 when I checked it a few tanks later('05 model), but the 52 was a lot of highway miles. I expect it will be less now that I am revving past the 10k mark. :devil

175 miles to 3.5-8 gallons, highway.To lazy to do the math. Average speed 90 mph. Usually keep the rpm around or above 8000. Love those Cali highways. :beer

I average low 40's in city/highway conditions.The one long highway ride I went on I was getting like 55mpg maybe more.The added mileage wasn't worth the straight ride.The next day I found a couple nice curvy roads to ride.I'm happy with getting high 30's/ low 40's in some nice curvy roads.

50 mpg average city/highway in my 2005 but consider, 1 imperial gallon = 1.201 US gallon.
An IMPERIAL gallon? What the hell is THAT haha. This reminds me of the south part song.... BLAME CANADA :D I'm just busting your chops.

I guess I'm getting between 40 and 50. One thing I noticed. I put 110 miles on a full tank yesterday and the gauge went down by 2 bars. That was a mix of highway and back road. I rode in to work today...10 miles and the it went down another bar and I have about 120 miles on the tank. It doesn't seem that there is consistency to the gauge. I should still get close to 200 before he starts flashing.

I read in the mpg thread linked at the top about people getting better gas mileage during the break-in. I was the exact opposite. Mine seems to be getting better the more miles I put on it. I only got around 120 miles out of my first tank.

Just my $0.02.

I'm getting 43-44 for everyday riding. Once I'm out on the highway at a constant speed I get 51-52. Last winter when it was cold, I never got over 39....I think she likes the warm weather better!

Oh yeah, my odometer is reading correctly also....speedohealer.

Just finished up my first full tank last night... 52 mpg. But that was pretty tame riding with only a few short bursts up in the higher rpm's.

I just filled up my 05 for the first time. Filled up with trip mileage at 211.6 miles w/ 4.1 gallons, that put it at 51.61 mpg. The twisty to highway percentages were probably around 40% to 60% respectively. Still breaking in the engine but I'm not a huge high rev-er in general so I expect to get around 50 mpg on average. Thank goodness because gas is too expensive and I was reading a lot of people saying they were getting in the low 40's!

To compare, on my old 99 R6 (carb'ed) I used to get about the same gas mileage: 50 to 55. Almost never below 50; in fact, I can't remember it ever being below 50...

I seemed to get better gas mileage after braking it in too. I get about 45+- now though. About 80% of my riding is in twisties though.
