Mine seems to jump from 60-70, but rarely in between. I usually ride with a heavy wrist, because, even at sixty, thats 3 times better than my car.

The 450 with the narrow pipes get 60 with the windshield on and the 450 with the Shorter Harley pipes gets 53 I got much better before the windshield. I drive alot on the big roads and throttle down, plus i play with it just to hear it roar. My friend drives a 450 with the narrow pipes and i like to tease her by throttling the pipes but im the first to have to stop to fill up so who laughs last there? But Still better than my truck that gets 14mpg

first check of mileage shows 60 mpg-
all short around town trips...
and prob about 30% or so two up- i am sure that makes the mileage worse; and as has been pointed out, 60 mpg being worse than it could be is still more than twice what any of my cars gets!!!

I get about 50 mpg as well. It's almost all city driving, though. I'm hoping i get better on longer hauls.

After 77 miles on my Reb 450, I put 2.046 gallons in it, so with mixed driving I am getting about 38-40 MPG. Mind you, I am about 280 pounds!!

I just refilled the tank for the first time this past week. On my first trip out, I filled it up all the way --needed 1.9 gallons. After putting 102 miles on the trip odometer; added 1.1 gallons to fill it back up.

100 MPG beats the heck out of the 23 MPG that my Mark VIII gets (on a good day, keeping your foot out of the engine, no stop lights...etc...)

When anyone asks me how I'm liking my bike, my response is simply:

"100 MPG. What's not to like?? Oh, and it's fun too!"

:D

2003 Rebel 250 with spitfire windshield.

I ride 60 miles round trip each day to work. On the back roads with a mix of 55, 50, 45mph and a few stoplights I average about 74mpg. I get about the same mileage at 70mph on the interstate; all stright and flat and of course no stops.

Ok.. Great poll!

Here's my story.

When looking to purchase a Rebel the salesperson told me people were getting 80 to 90 mpg. I thought this was a just BS sales pitch.

I'm 5' 10" and 200 lbs. I drive 10 miles one way to work at 35 to 40 MPH 85% of the way and 55 to 60 MPH the rest. Quite a few stoplights along the way.

I purchased 2007 Rebel and I have about 800 miles on the bike now.
I'm happy to say I have not had less than 80 mpg on a fillup yet. The last tank gave me 90.

Very happy for its mileage but still wonder when I can buy a Honda Unicorn. :?

I have almost 600 miles on my rebel 250 at this point. Commuting is primarily at 55-70 mph and anywhere from 65 to 80 miles per day. I am running right around 75mpg.

I have a Corolla that gets around 37mpg, but the rebel 250 is a lot more fun and uses half the gas.

I ran out of gas with 93 miles on a few days ago. I don't think I messed up the trip meter. What would likely cause such low MPG? Could it be related to the fact that I *never* have to use the choke, even on cold days?

Glad my numbers are in line with the majority.
Zoohgirl, def. sounds like a rich condition. I'd have that checked out before gas goes back thru the roof.

By "rich condition" do you mean the gas/air mix? Is this why no choke needed?

Thanks! :)

Yikes. Is this a big problem? Becket runs so nicely...never a problem. Isn't it just a matter of adjusting a valve of some sort? IS HE GOING TO DIE?? :fishangry: :fishsad:
:cry:

Better to rich than too lean.
Check the air filter, sudden loss of MPG may be something simple. Riding habits are one of the largest factors determining MPG.

You are in southern Cali? If you only ride on nice days Becket may never need to be choked.

Also, somebody could have reset your trip meter while "looking" at your bike.

Do you record the mileage and gas purchased? If yes, that will let you test my hypothesis.
