I have read that the RE will get around 80 - 85 miles per gallon. Is that a US gallon or a real one? The reason I ask is that I am getting about 65mpg (in the USA) which is around 80 miles per Imperial gallon. I have around 1,400 miles on my G5.
Currently £6.23 ($9.86) per Gallon !!
I'm a new rider with a 2010 C5, just breaking it in. I've ridden about 800 miles, mostly in city traffic below 40mph with a lot of stop-and-go, some intermittent short stretches of highway. Almost all my riding has been in New York City. The best I've achieved is about 42 MPG (US). Is this normal? Should I be expecting better?For what it's worth, I'm a heavy person (250 lbs). My shifting technique is probably fine - I have 30 years experience driving a manual transmission car.
In the last 11,000 miles that I rode for a total of 16,000 miles, Bare
working on 4.5 litres to the imperial gallon i get 98 mpg on highway running at 55 to 60 miles per hour.as for around town running - never done that - too dangerous riding around town so it's the highway or nothing
I've got a 2012 B5 with 3,333.3 and I usually get 60 or just below. My average freeway commute is 10 miles there and back again with a top speed of 70, but usually 65. Sadly, I weigh in at 195 and can't seem to lose more.

Perhaps that's why my city MPG is so disappointing in stop-and-go NYC traffic -- because of the traffic pattern I'm either over-revving in 1st gear or on the verge of lugging in 2nd gear practically all the time.
