I ride a 300 mile round trip every Friday on my 2008 Rebel. About 4 miles of it is city riding, the rest is two lane highway riding. I ride at 55 to 60 mph. My MPG range is from 57 MPG at worst to 78 MPG at best.

I find that the weather has a great affect on milage. If it is cold in the 20 to 40 deg. F range my milage is poor. On a hot day I get great milage. Wind direction is everything to the Rebel. The day I got 57 MPG I had a head wind gusting to 33 MPH. That day it took full throttle to maintain 60 MPH. On the way home I had a tail wind pushing me and my milage was outstanding. My milage is poor in the rain.

I find that my milage is better if I have a car or truck in front of me plowing through the wind. I can stay about 75 to 100 feet behind a car and see about a 10% improvement in milage.
If I am plowing through the wind with my cruise control on and a car passes me, I pick up about 3 to 4 MPH of speed when the car turns back into my lane.

For the most part, on a warm day with light wind and cruiseing at 60 MPH, I will get about 70 to 75 MPG

Just drove 100km after filling the tank full. Went into the gas station to fill it up again and it was 3 liters to the cork. So, convert 3 l/100km to MPG and you get 78.41 MPG. Not bad, not bad. Especially in comparison to my Audi 2.3 Turbo that makes 16-23 MPG :)

So, the 95 petrol (I don't know how octane numbers correlate in European and USA specifications) costs 0.720 Ls or 1.03 Eur or $1.44 per liter (~$5.03 per gallon).

That means that 1km costs me ~0.0225 Ls (that number is for me), and 1 mile costs $0.023 (that's for you :) ).

Hi All,

My wife's 2002 allroad has 42500 mi and still looks like new inside and out (including a 3000 mile cross country relocation and a couple of 1500 mi trips). For the last 5 years, this car now gets driven about 3000 mi per year. (She works at home so no commutes). That works out to an average of 4700 mi per year since new, give or take.

I know there have been some high mileage comparison posts in the past. Conversely, can anyone with a 5-9 year old allroad claim a lower mileage based on a per year number? Just curious to see if we hold any kind of low mileage record here. :-)

Cheers.

When I rode down to the Ohio Rebel Rally (all highway) I averaged 59mpg. But my normal everyday commute I get 86mpg, average. Obviously riding open throttle got me the worse mileage. I'm happy

I had mine out yesterday and at 240km I had to switch to reserve and I filled it up at 248ish and it took $9.86 of supreme which if I figured it out right is 83mpg. I am a field training paramedic for work and get paid mileage when I teach. One area I frequently go to is 45min away and another is 2 hrs round trip, all back roads, so if I take the Rebel at .39 a km I'm laughing. :D

I love Imperial gallons! They make the bike seem more frugal (or my riding less throttle twisty).

Unless I'm playing with steep hills like the ones on RT 81South, I generally tend to get 72mpgish.

I average 60-65 on my 400 on average. I prolly can crank about 68mpg on a low speed limit(like 50 or 55) but at 70 mph I prolly get less. My city is about on par cause I drive very gas efficient out of habit.

I have a 1982 CM250C Rebel and I changed the rear sprocket from the OEM 32 tooth to a 28. The first tank I averaged 83 mpg and second 88 mpg. Since I live in L.A. I spend a large %age of time sitting at red lights or stuck in traffic. I'm certain on straight cruising it would approach 100 mpg!

They should have put US mpg or IMP. Mileage varies by 20%

With a 15/25t my 2013 model can get upto 118mpg at a constant 30mph.
Combined start stop traffic with a stop every other 10 blocks, that is around 105mph.
At WOT in 5th, it gets 66mpg at 80mph.
At WOT in 4th, it gets 72mpg at 85mph.
At 75-80mph in 5th, with about 20 degrees of throttle left, it gets around 75mpg.
Average general for me, of 50%highway, 50%city, is between 80 to 85mpg per ride, or 82mpg all average.

With a 15/28t, I got 85mpg average, because I rode WOT at about 600rpm higher, no lugging, right in the powerband.

Hot Florida weather here.

Greetings MeeLee,

With the 15/25t sprocket set, at 30 mph, what gear is selected at this speed?

With the 15/25t sprocket set, speed of 80 and 85 mph is not achieveable on a Rebel CMX250C.

With the 15/28t sprocket set. What was the speed of your 2013 Rebel?

1- 5th gear.

2- It is on mine! I regularly hit 80+MPH on my 15/25t, but for top speed it's a little too heavy. 87MPH if I'm having a 10+MPH wind in the back.

3- top speed on a 15/28t was 87MPH, reaching 90MPH on a long stretch. Other than using a shot of dexos oil (5W30) in my 10W40 oil, and an oz or two of 2 stroke oil, I changed nothing about my stock rebel (performance wise).
I did add trunks and windshield, that actually did nothing to top speed (not faster, nor slower).

My top speeds are measured with feet on the passenger pegs, and leaning forward over the tank. Sitting upright, it's about 5 to 10MPH slower.
