Hi All

Just picked up my Scrambler Icon today. Having a ton of fun running it in.

Any idea on what to expect for average fuel consumption?

I'm doing 210 till 220 kms till empty tank. First service not done yet.

I'm getting the same. Fuel light on at 118 - 123 miles, approx 55mpg imperial.
I was surprised to see that once the light comes on the display starts to count miles from the fuel light on. I can't really see the point of this. Unless you run it until the fuel runs out then you'll know not to go that far again :confused5:

I noticed that my mpg improved with each fill-up from new to 1st service.

It is now about 50 mpg (US gallons).

Been getting about the same as everyone else possibly just a tad lower due to the CARB emissions regulations in our state. But definitely at least 45mpg

I think the zero trip thing when the fuel lit comes on is a great idea! If you don't notice the light, easy in bright sunlight, you'll have no idea how long it's been on for :) When you refil you get the trip reading back anyway ;-)

I'm getting about 58-60 mpg - I don't ride it like a granny honest, I got up to 110mph today - accidentally!! :angel4: and did about 180 miles in the twisty hilly Welsh mountains. I have got 165 out of it before refuelling, and had 1 litre left. So I reckon pushing it I could get about 175 miles on one tank ... :toothy4:

I managed 165miles and it spluttered to a halt (fortunately within a stones throw of my local garage) and put exactly 3 gallon back in to fill it to the brim = 55mpg - mixed town and countryside riding (no motorways) and not paying any attention to trying to ride it economically but at the same time not wringing the neck out of it - Happy with that - Generally I always look to refuel around 125mile mark which is about the time the light comes on

On our planned Morocco trip next year I'll have the smallest tank. I'll be carrying some spare fuel I think! I'll post up if consumption improves with the new gearing ;-)

Just completed 2nd tank. Had filled it up to top and got 124 miles before fuel light came on. Considering I run it hard I am happy with that while it runs in

Mine must be shockingly low... Fuel light comes on at 100/102 miles! Filled up twice now and both times the light has come on around the 100 mile mark.

Is there a display on the dash for average MPG?

Mines the same tony, I generally fill up around the 100 mile mark anyway,

I've not found an average MPG Calculation on the dash, :rolleyes:

So my guess is when the fuel light comes on you've done around 10Litres of fuel?

I've decided that when on longer runs if I start looking for petrol stations around the 90 mile mark I should be fine :)
