    You'll get more when or if you tour on it, I was regularly filling up at 90-100 miles, but going away on it 130 miles is fine to fill up.
    To be fair I was worried about it when I went round France in june, It wasn't a issue at all, I went with mates with s1000r and smt990 and we all said the same.yes mine used the most fuel , but not by a lot
    Man maths with a dose of alcohol is always a winner!!

    Does anyone notice a difference in millage between different fuel grades?
    I do mainly fast (180kmh - 250kmh) autobahn riding. I get about 20km more before the tank light starts to flash on Super Plus (98 octane) the on Super (95 octane).
    Thats 140km instead of 120km before tank light flashes. I notice no difference in engine performance or smoothness between the fuel grades, just it goes a little further.
    Anyone else notice the same?

    Travellng at that speed I would say the connection consumption is good!

    Have found 98 RON fuel seems to get a few more k's out of a tank, gets more dollars out of my wallet too.

    I have no complaints about the fuel consumption. It's about the same as my previous R1 and ZX10R.
    I agree though, the more Euros for 98 octain is too much for the few extra k's.

    If I can get my flash tune active tune working again I had planned to compare some different fuels and record what trims the active tune was doing with each fuel on the same ride and roughly same air pressure, that way I could get a feel for what fuel the MT likes to consume.
