fuel consumption

just wondered what kind of MPG I should get from my VF1000F
its on the road now and Just wondered how bad it is


Hi there,
I’ve tested my VF1000F for the first time yesterday after a standstill of 3 years. I did 305kms before hitting reserve. That’s 190 miles. I don’t know how much litres the tank holds whitout its reserve…

That sound pretty good in my book

The tank holds 5 Imperial Gallons ( UK )
reserve is 0.8

190/5 = 38 to the gallon

What sort of speed was that please


I did not measure it accurately, I did 480 miles on two tanks of fuel, varying speeds, around 300 miles @ 100-120 mph, on a private test track of course…
