I have been relying on the computer to get my MPG. Being disappointed with 35 MPG, 2 up pulling a trailer. I decided to manually check my MPG after every fill up and was actually getting 40 +- MPG.

The moral to this story, don’t rely on the computer for MPG. Do a manual check and maybe you will be surprised at what you are actually getting.

The BC on my bike is usually within 1 mpg, but not always. The biggest difference, other than riding style, being the ethanol content, which drops my mileage about 10%.

Two up, windshield full up, ~40 mpg.
Solo, windshield down, ~46 mpg (w/ethanol).

My BC is typically 2 to 3 mpg shy of actual.

IIRC, that BC can be recalibrated to display the correct MPG. Somebody?
I think this is what you're looking for.
