It's good to see Suzuki putting up a few models with MPG data. Suzuki must have been inspired by us. :D

Please keep the MPG data coming gang, it really helps make our guide great!

Standardizing with the Government.

The US Gov't is using our Motorcycle Fuel Economy Guide as a go-to standard for motorcycle MPG as they feel Total Motorcycle is the best resource out there, but it is time to update the Motorcycle Fuel Economy Guide once again and I noticed that fueleconomy.gov changed to a new standard of reporting MPG... so, I wanted your opinion on standardizing our guide to their guide. http://www.fueleconomy.gov/mpg/MPG.do?a ... details=on

As you see, the US Gov't is using more simplistic set of data, while we on the other hand, are using more complex set of data.

The US Gov't data:

Year: 2009
Make: Chevrolet
Model: Aveo 5
Average MPG: 30.4
City Driving: 30%
Highway Driving: 70%

We are using:

YEAR: 2006
MAKE: Harley-Davidson
MODEL: XL883 SPORTSTER 883
Average US MPG (City/Highway if known[/i]): 48/57
Average L/100km (City/Highway if known): 4.9/4.1
Fuel Capacity (US Gal/Litres if known): 3.3 gal. (12.5 L)
Engine Size/Cylinders: 888cc / 2
Source: (Manufacturer/Magazine/Personal)

----------------
So our data would be stripped down like this to match the US Gov't:

Year: 2006
Make: Harley-Davidson
Model: XL883 SPORTSTER 883
Average MPG: 52.5
City Driving: 50%
Highway Driving: 50%


Is this too basic or just enough data? Would you find it easier to read and submit your motorcycle MPG data if TMW used this as well?

Hmm, I like the little graphic contrasting the user to EPA. It might be difficult to provide highway/city estimates for percent of ride...

I agree as well. I think this highway/city data may be less important to motorcyclists than to car drivers really. TMW has been collecting that data over the years but I'm questioning if it's really important enough to keep collecting. Since this is user data I can't imagine riders are keeping seperate log books for city and highway. Sure the Gov't can find it out (via manufacturer test fleets) but the individual...?

I am in the process of doing Version 3.0 now.

PLEASE GO THROUGH YOUR MOTORCYCLE MAGAZINES and ADD YOUR PERSONAL DATA.

If I could get more MPG / L/100km motorcycle data that would be EXTREMELY helpful.

PLEASE add your motorcycle data below or MPG data you have found in the following EASY format:

YEAR:
MAKE:
MODEL:

Average Fuel Economy: (US MPG and/or L/100km)
Source: (Personal, Manufacturer, Magazine)

You can use our new: Online Fuel Economy converter guide to convert MPG to L/100km or L/100km to MPG here: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/converte ... verter.htm

Thank you!

As I am working on getting the new sections up, here is a preview of the new cover for version 3!

Incase you are wondering, that photo was taken by me in Alberta, Canada and that's my V-Strom infront of the oil pump-jack. (2008 photo). The gas prices are from a Shell gas station sign in the USA at the height of the oil price ($147/bbl) crisis.

I added the Best and Worst tanks that were tracked...don't know it that info is really useful, but there it is...
