How many miles should I get from a tank on an '02 ? I used to get about 150 before the break-in service, but now I get only about 130-135.

Is it just the fact that I didn't really rev it up high before the breakin ?

That's not bad. Better than I was getting with my '98 with a jet kit and pipe.

I get around 100-120 with Town driving, and about 140-160 on a good, fast rideout. Sad as I am, I worked that out to about 40mpg and 50mpg.

Both figures are before I switch to Reserve.

Well maybe it's just the Aussie fuel, but I've had 288km and 292km (approx 180 miles) from my last two tanks, before switching to reserve.

I run 96 - 98 octane on a 2000 J1.

It's partly due to a fair bit of freeway riding, but even when I ride it harder in town or round the twisties I'm still getting 150 - 160 miles a tank.

Fuel here is more expensive than in the US I believe so it is still better for the pocket for you yanks. ;)

I usually get around 130 miles before I hit reserve. I have only seen 150 miles one time and that was after being on reserve and stretching it.

Maybe I'm just a wuss compared to some of the guys on here :D

I'll let you know how I go with a full tank of town riding.

I fill my tank right to the brim pretty much. (only maybe an inch from overflowing the tank) How full do you all fill your tanks?

In heavy around town riding I get 170 - 180km.

Highway I tend to get 280 - 290km. Twisties, around 250km.

It's not the speed that kills, it's the sudden stop...
