PostSubject: Fuel consumption   Fri Apr 27, 2018 7:46 am

Thought I'd do an experiment yesterday, riding from Seattle east over Snoqualamie to Ellensburg, then down the Canyon Road to Yakima and back, a series of fast but blind curves along cliff faces bleeding rocks and whatever, but super pavement, most curves marked 35-40 so really at least 60. I was checking my stamina for touring in hotter weather wearing mesh gear over my body armor which is quite hot, total of almost 300 miles in 5 hours. Next time I'll stop more!!

   Long story short, running plus/minus 70 mph up and over the pass and expecting to get maybe 30 mpg, I got @45. 113.2 miles, 2.5 gallons, stock set-up, 6th, 4,000 rpm.

   Does that sound right, or am I running too lean?

Thanks, Joe

I used to drive from Richland to Tacoma a good bit so I know that one! That's a good bit of elevation, temperature and atmosphere changes in that ride so it might be an outlier.

I checked the dash fuel mpg which showed 40 mpg running 80 on the way back. Personally, I liked it slower.
