Mileage

Last fall dad & I did a little 330 mile trip. Him on his 03 650 Burgman me on my 2002LT Speed limits plus 5 or 10 over Mostly rural country cruising in Northern Illinois. both of us got 49mpg. Filled up twice same fuel intake. We were surprised at how close the mileage was I was 48.9 and him 49.1

I usually get a minimum of 42mpg and I not shy on the throttle. 39,000 mile on odometer.

Mileage did get better as mileage went up on bike. I did not go wimpy on the break in and do visit the red line at lest once or twice after the bike is warmed up. I did go easy for the first 600 miles and then what ever is said to do but after that. I let it rip. It is a BMW not a HD or GW both glorified tractor engines with low RPM power curves hence the over all lower mileage you get from them. The 1800 wing is a real pig from what most owners tell me. Most seem happy with 35mpg. Heck I get 29mpg with my MINI (non S) and there again I am not shy with the gas pedal.

I personally think you need to rev any modern BMW engine as part of the break in. just my $.02

Oh I do run premium only 92-93 octane. My dad gets away with the 87 octane stuff.

Great Mileage

I just did a 1500 mile trip. The BC was reset at the start. By the end of the trip I recorded 4.7 l/100km. That is about 60 mpg UK, or 50 mpg US. Over the trip the fuel economy improved as the distance accumulated. I traveled at 120 kph - 75 mph, except in the twisties when the gears dropped and the rpm went to 5-7,000. At home when I am commuting the mileage drops off by about 10-15%. I am OK with that, as I expect stop and go driving to use more fuel. The thing is that my commute is 70 miles and the slow driving is the 2 miles of 20 mph on the work site. It should not have a lot of impact. My question is this: does the engine management system "learn" your driving style and make adjustments accordingly? Does it sense the little bit of slow driving and allow for it in the calculations?

DakotaDude Another contributor to the LT's gas mileage is the slippery bodywork. A "fully-faired" bike will generally post better mileage figures than a naked bike due to lower wind resistance. There of lots of swirling eddies and air currents that pass through the framework of a naked bike that simply slide by a faired bike in a laminar fashion. Another post mentioned altitude as a benefit to better mpg....I have also seen this hold true.

I actually wish the gearing was taller in high gear. My Voyager turned only 2700 at 60 MPH. I keep trying to shift into 6th gear on my LT as it just feels like it is spinning too fast at 60.

harrowbmw Greetings all.

Today with a slight tail wind, screen down and cruising at 90kph, my BC was showing 3.9 litres per 100km. Pretty damn good I think. I should have taken a photograph.

Kindest regards to all.

I am a cruiser type in my riding style, speed limit plus 5 is normal. How in the world can this 800 lb 1200 cc bike match a 500 lb. 750.

Just asking, not questioning any ones statement.


It has to be the fuel injection/computer on the bike that helps it get such great fuel milage! I just finished a 10 day/4000 mile trip out west and it sounds like I ride very much like you, speed limit plus 5, and I never got less than 54 mpg! Actually got 65mpg + on a couple of tanks in the mountains of WY!!! I've been very impressed with the milage! My buddy that was with me had an FJR and he was putting at least 1/2 gal more in his fuel tank at each fuel stop on this trip!!

omurphy i forgot to mention that with my lt i've gotten anywhere from 41 to 52 depending mainly on the way i use the throttle to how hot the whether is. the warmer it is the better the mileage to a far lesser degree.

I must be a granny

I bought my 03' LT in March and get a consistent 50-54 mpg in my daily commute through the central Pennsylvania farm lands. Two weeks ago I did a 2K trip on interstates at 75-80 mph and averaged 49 mpg. I think the wind resistance at higher speeds lowers my mpg average a bit.

Jul 15th, 2007 1:16 pm
david_yancey I agree about riding style, although engine displacement impacts so much as well... a new wing with 600cc more displacement will be much more thirsty although the 1500cc engine doesn't do much, if any, better especially on a Valkryie. I had a 1986 Yamaha Venture Royale 1300cc that consistantly got 45-50mpg, but I never rode that bike hard either keeping at speed limit all the time. My LT see's only occasional higher speeds and I have never seen below 45 mpg, 2 -up in a strong headwind. In fact, 53 mpg highways (60-65mph) are regular (I have a no freeway rule -see more interesting country that way). I also know I baby my bike... no hard throttles, not often over 4500 rpm and I find my need for mechanical adjustments are less necessary. The way I ride suites my wife better anyway!

Although I am not at see level (Denver) I consistently see 300+ miles per tank. That is without taking it easy on the throttle and a combination of highway, twisties and city driving. My average highway speed is about 70 (corrected - speedo: 75) and don't usually push too far above 4K rpms. But octane here is 91.
Jul 15th, 2007 9:00 am
skipperc On my 2005 if I take it easy on the throttle {mostly while two up with the SO} 60-65 cruise controled highway and nice and easy 4 to 4.5k shifts in town I can get around 53 mpg combined. IF on the other hand I am riding solo at a very rapid rate on the highway and more spirited in town my mileage drops to about 42 mpg.

Unless there is some other problem working, speed is the factor for me. I don't get any better than 39-40MPG on my commutes and I'm riding close to 80MPH most of the time. I hit some stop and go at the halfway point on the way home in the evening. I've been able to increase a little if I lane split to avoid stopping during those periods. Not an option for most. I'm sure I could get the mid 40 to 50MPG numbers if I slowed down and ran closer to 65MPH.
Jul 14th, 2007 11:54 am
Voyager Well, the 1800 does have 50% more engine than the LT and a fair bit more weight and frontal area for drag. I'm not too surprised that it gets less, but low 30s does sound pretty horrendous. I'd like to get at least 45 commuting with my LT and I'm hoping for 50 on the road. If it matches my Voyager, I'll be a happy camper.

Wing

Friends on Wings which are technologically advanced bikes like the LT are getting in the low to mid 30s. I run a consistant 48-53 mpg. Makes little sense but I like not thinking about gassing up till around the 300 mile mark on my 99.
Jul 14th, 2007 8:12 am
Voyager Slower usually results in better mileage as long as the slower doesn't result in a lot of stop and go riding. My Voyager would get 46-48 on the interstate at 65-70, but when riding on the back roads at 50-55 on our fall "leaf ride" my wife and I would often get 52+ MPG. Also, I got better mileage with the Voyager riding two-up than I did solo. I was never 100% sure why, but I think the passenger smooths the airflow around the trunk so it doesn't act like an air brake.

I'm only on my 4th tank with my LT so I don't have a good feel for mileage yet. The computer seems to read way high. It said 45 and 46 MPG for my first two tanks and they both computed to 39, which was disappointing, but I realize it is still breaking in. The third tank also reported 46 MPG on the computer and calculated to 46.7 which is much better. My wife and I took a back road jaunt with a group recently and the computer was reporting 50-51 for the 165 miles we traveled (1/2 tank). I then rode to work solo at 55 MPH and the computer has dropped to 49. I'm curious to see what it really is when I fill the tank again.

The Kawasaki was one of the best carbureted machines I've ever owned and consistently returned near 50 MPG for a long-term average. I certainly hope the Beemer with its fancy fuel injection, etc., will do at least as well given the almost identical engine sizes and machine weights.

Tim,
Something's not right: how do you get low 50MPG (that's somewhere between 50-55MPG, right?) on a daily commute, if you only got 47.2MPG on a relatively steady 1000 mi ride?

I use my 2005 LT for daily commute in stop-and-go traffic (side streets, with a 4-5 blocks between traffic lights, that are not synchronized). My speed is somewhere between 40-50 mph (according to the inaccurate speedo), and I usually average 35 MPG over the week. I score higher (42-45MPG) on weekends on long, 300-400 mi rides at steady speeds.

Jul 13th, 2007 7:50 pm
ljjohns Both my old K11 and my K12 seem to have a high error on the speedo; that is evident when I use the Garmin speedo to validate speed (a measurement that has a .2 mph error rate as far as I can tell from the various webboards).

I did a 2400 mile trip from Seattle to El Paso, and while I lost some data, the actual mpg was significantly lower than that indicated on the screen. Nonetheless, it was above 40 mpg.

Where do I find information on correcting the speedometer? I think mine reads close to 10% high.

Also, I came across this message while searching for how the trip computer MPG is reset correctly. When I reset mine by holding the button, it goes to 36 MPG rather than 0. Sometimes it will flash a lower number, 16 I think, but as soon as I release the button it goes back to 36. What gives?

Not sure, Steve. I believe the '99-'01 bikes had separate sensors for speed and ABS. So one break shouldn't affect the other function. I also believe those wires were routed differently, so that the rubbing problem isn't nearly as likely on the earlier bikes.

BillyOmaha The LT average is a bit better than the K-R even with the 350# weight savings. Style and wind resistance the most likely culprits.

Without deliberately trying to get better mileage....i.e. low on fuel and need to stretch for a fuel stop, or at higher altitudes.....both of them almost always get between 31 and 38 mpg.

For me, the most important thing about these bikes is that when I fill them up I smile ear-to-ear every time. The whole time I'm watching the pump, I can't help but have the thought
that riding is the most fun at the lowest cost I can think of ... well, except for a weekend with my Daisy and without the kids .

The primary and initial sensor for Motronic management functions, is the water temp sensor located on the back of the engine in / on the water jacket at the head side. You can see it with a flashlight w/o removing anything. Checking it and replacing it are another matter and requires a GT1 hook up and laser heat gun for detection of actual heat compared to what the sensor reads. If this sensor is off or bad, it will cause the engine to run rich. O2 sensor, air box remp sensor all play a roll, but come into play with the h2o sensor after it has made it's calculation IIRC.

The speedo and odo use the same input (rear wheel ABS sensor ring) but calculate their values differently. I did a 100 mile test up an interstate checking mileage marker posts, and the odo read 103.3 miles. Much better than the speedo error, but after calibrating the speedo mine's always within 1 mph of true speed (based on GPS and various radar "Your Speed Is . . ." signs).

mileage

I have a 2000 LT, and I am averaging right around 48 mpg since purchasing it last November, and putting approximately 10000 miles on it. My speedometer is almost right on the money at 60 mph, so I think I am one of the lucky ones. My computer is about 2 mpg lower than my actual mpg. I am in Indiana (so no altitude), and I generally don't drive over 65 for any long distances--although I do ride the Interstate occasionally. I have a 1997 Ultra Classic, and it gets 43-46 mpg with the same type of riding. I have been on trips with a buddy who has a 2004 Road King, and over the same distance, his bike is within 2 mpg of my LT. Just thought I would weigh in. jrlakin
Sep 12th, 2006 2:12 pm
docpc Just to add a data point... I recorded fuel/miles for over 3,500 miles of combined commuting, errands, day rides, and two 1K mile tours. Average is 48.7 on my 2001 KLT.

My 1984 Harley FXR(T) gets just about the same mileage despite several mods including a Mikuni HSR42 carb and 2" drag pipes with ThunderMonster baffles.

So I'd say that just about any properly tuned bike in the 1100cc/1340cc range should be able to do as well...

Sep 12th, 2006 1:43 pm
2000klticon I consistently get 48-52 mpg driving to and from work and around town at speeds under 70. At highway speeds (80-85) I get about 42-44. I don't know what kind of Harley you were riding with, but all the people on Harley's I've ridden with stop every 100 miles. Even Gold Wings don't usually get over 35 on the open road. By the way anyone who would call the beautifully streamlined K1200LT a "PIG" must be a knucklehead! pun intended.

andyhardt Averaging 49.4 mpg since topping off 2/23. Yes, riding style, load, and speeds all very much factor into each individual's "range". Looking back, '97 Road King (carbureted Evo, stock) 40.63 mpg over 15k miles, '91 CB750 45.88 mpg over 6k miles, '01 Road Glide (FI w/Stage 1 breather kit & pipes) 43.13 mpg over 18.5k miles, '93 GSX1100G 37.95 mpg over 4k miles. And the winner is...'04 Titan Silver LT. FYI...check out this FAQ to dial in your BC's estimated MPG:

Just a wunder'in

Have put 800 miles in the last few weeks on a 2000 LTC with 18K when I bought it a couple of weeks ago. I took my first 350+ mile trip last week and clocked 49 mpg on the trip computer and 50.5 by the odometer and gals. at the pump.

I've read some of the posts about the inaccurate speedometer and have seen about a 6-7 mph (10% minus) error at 65 mph according to the portable radar signs.

Isn't the speedometer/odometer synch'd and if there is a speed error there will also be a mileage error?

Most of the better milagesx you see are coming from one of two types of people. Either they live at very high altitudes, or they ride their LTs EXTREMELY slowly. You would be amazed at what mileage you would get if you rode your LT at 5K' above sea level, or higher.

Drag!

Being in a country that calculates distance travelled for fuel used as litres/100Km, I had to work out what my gas "mileage" is as you guys do. At and average of 5,6 litres per 100Km work out at a paltry 42mpg. How can this be? I ride basically conservatively to get what I thought was good gas mileage only to see that there are others who get way more! I've put it down to drag caused mainly by the screen. Mostly in the up position, one must expect to pay for "comfort". I'm going to try the next tank of fuel with my Vstream at lowest position and see what kind of difference it makes.
Sep 11th, 2006 9:07 pm
Lonewuff Thanks Scott,

I will give it a try, actually I have it scheduled for 6K (me and tools like water & oil and everything you said was Greek to me ) and adding several lights to the front end next week, so will ask the tech to try it.

Had similar issues mid summer. Was only getting 35/38 mpg no matter how i rode the bike & mileage loss was after doing my 24K service during the winter.
** had disconnected the battery & when done doing the service, hooked it back up & went riding ....

WRONG thing to do !!! .... Bike ran fine, but was a tad rich by looking at the pipe outlet.

.... Went back a few months ago, pulled the fuse for the motronic unit and left it alone for @ 2 hours. Then plug fuse back in (Same as disconnecting battery) and switched on ignition, but DID NOT start ... rolled throttle from idle to full @ 3 times to give the motronic unit throttle end points & reset the calibration

Sense doing that my mileage has been NO LOWER than 43 and has averaged @ 48 !!

that just maybe your trouble too ?

hagar I was wondering the same. The 3 times I filled it up, I averaged 48, 52, and 45 miles per gallon, and I'm just over 210 miles for today's ride and have about 1/4 tank left. Not complaining of course, just amazed!

My ZX11 got as high as 336 miles on a tank once before going on reserve, and I got about 52 mpg that day, but it was riding with a bunch of slower riders riding from Phoenix to Kit Peak and back, averaging about 70 mph. It did get about 45 mpg average for me, better than any other bike I owned except the 50cc.

ronk1200lt Also watch where you get your information an imperial gallon (the measurement used in Canada and Britain) is about 20% larger than that used in the U.S., so the variances in milage will often depend on whether you are reading an American, British or Canadian test. Ron
