Litres per 100 Kmls/mpg

Just a silly question after running out of fuel , TWICE, after motor top end rebuild I try to calculate the litres per 100 Kms After doing 86 kms I used 6 litres of fuel. Top up to top up.
What mileage are others getting(85 gsxr750f) how far an you safely go ona tank 19 litres plus 4 litres reserve.?


Also is the reserve part of the tank seperate from the main tank? Accidentally left tap turned to reserve and ran out completely.
I thought that the reserve tap pickup wasjust shorter than the main tank pickup thus when the fuel level goes below the main pickup, switching to reserve uses the fuel in the bottom of the tank.
Any ideas.

That's 41 miles per UK gallon, seems pretty good to me depending on type of riding.

The reserve inlet is lower at the bottom of the tank, with the normal inlet being a couple of inchdes higher. Yes same tank.

The behaviour you describe is as expected.

When the bike is on normal it will run out and splutter/die, leaving a little in the bottom of the tank, which you access by switching to reserve.

Well, that's about 7l per 100kms, which is pretty dismal. were you running if flat out in 1st gear??

You should be getting around 5-6l / 100kms, unless this is a track bike, then.........
