At the end of the day your KP get pretty damn good gas Mileage. Your worst mileage is what I get on a tank of gas booting around the city.

Sorry to hear that Chris.


I'll up date these figures in a few months to see how they are going.

I did a ride from Caboolture to Tin Can Bay yesterday. 192 kms. A mixture of Highway, Fast Curves and Sealed Farm areas. We had a few good runs up to 135klm/h. I averaged 5.0 L/100kms  20kms/l 340kms/tank.


New Up Dates for petrol usage.

Premium is all i use in my scoot, and sleds nothin sucks more than being 60 or 70 miles from nowhere and having a fuel problem, also only purchase from good quality supliers. Here in the U.S. i will only get fuel from stations like newer Maverik's and Chevrons. Unless i screw up and miscalculate the distance on a long ride like say going from Utah to Colorada for instance then any premium is good premium. But locally i stick to them 2 . Ride safe .

Big D.
