View Full Version : fuel milage survey....

Maybe some forum guru could set this up properly....

My theory regarding excessive fuel mileage is this:-

If you change to Map 2 you really do need a free flowing exhaust. ie cored standards or Akro's (WITH BAFFLES OUT). If the restriction to exhaust gas flow exists - mileage is crap.

I get ~44mpg (I live in a litres per 100km world so conversion may be a little dodgy) Akro's on, Map 2 and baffles out and a 15 tooth front sproket. I had a shy, stealthy moment and put the baffles in for a week (that’s about as long as I could stand it, quiet bikes suck!) and found empty came way quicker...

So feel free to reply..
Q1. Map 1 V's Map 2?
Q2. Standard or baffles IN pipes V's cored or free flow no baffles
Q3. Have you mucked with the sprockets? (ie 15 tooth front / 43 rear)
Q3. What mileage do you get?

My best was 42mpg all highway, riding like a Granny.
My worst is in the low 20's riding like a Hooligan.
Akra's no baffles, Map2.

Right around 33 mpg in mixed 50/50, mostly above 80 freeway, and probably 25 mph around town average.

Before I changed to the Akra exhaust and map 2 I was doing better and nearly 40 mpg at just over the speed limit on freeways and very little around town riding.

I have a decent trip coming up in a couple of weeks and will try, really try, to get the absolute best fuel economy for a couple of tanks. Frankly, I would rather stick hot needles in my eyes. So long as gas stations are plentiful, I just flat don't worry about it. If I want good economy, I can ride my '08 Sprint.

We have a pair of Tuonos in the garage.
Mine is on Map 2 with Aprilia Ti race cans & a rene airbox (15/42)
Liz's is on Map 1 with stock cans etc. (15/40)

I get 120 miles for 15 litres = 36 mpg riding fairly quickly
I get 140 miles for 15 litres = 42 mpg riding with my wife
Liz gets 150+ miles for 15 litres = 45 mpg riding with me.

Trackday - 10 litres does 60 miles = 27mpg (actually that's the Tuoldo but it's close enough)

These of course are proper gallons :), none of your colonial US stuff :happy:

Of course it could be the case that Liz is just a much smoother rider:lame:

A2. Leo free flow no baffles
A3. 15 tooth front
A3. What mileage do you get? Light comes on around 90 miles. Never really added it up but I figure around 35

Map 2
open akras (no baffle)
15t, 42t
commuting via slow roads (30 & 40) in london traffic - 32mpg
razzing round the m25 at a steadyish national speed limit - 42mpg
enjoying a nice sunny day on Surreys finest roads - 36mpg

map2, cored stockers; cats knocked out, left in baffles but cut them down a bit: 34 to 37 mpg depending of how I'm riding it.

my MPG is awful. I'm on my 4th tankfull with a 2007 model that i just picked up with 7k miles on it and each tankfull has returned 24-27 mpg. i use the bike most for commuting to work which is about 75% highway. i do have FUN riding the bike, but nothing that would constitute such pathetic numbers.

i'm running short gearing, Map 1 (recently reflashed), and stock pipes.

when my plugs and filter come in, i'm gonna give her a tune-up along with valve lash and compression check. kinda crazy considering how well it runs. having said that, i'm eager to fix this, since it can only translate into even better performance.

Yep, identical to my setup and milage.

Leo Fact Ti slips-no baffles
PCIII/Dyno by Micah
Map 2
15/43

28-32mpg twisting the snot out of it
33-36mpg commuting at around 35-45 mph
Highest I've ever reached is 39 during long freeway stretches which are rare

I am sure my 07 factory gets poor mileage as I seem to constantly fill er' up but I don't make the arithmatic to verify.I've got akras and map 2 but what I realize more than anything is how tiny the tank is. 12lt till the light comes on is not alot of KM's. But what I find funny is the Aprilia forum obsession with finding out why or how much everyone else gets. Let's face a fact, we ride a bike with the comparable performance of ferrari, lambourghini, porsche, maserati etc., these are not fuel efficient vehicles and neither is the mighty T. I immagine on any ferrari or lambo forum the guys don't fret about who's gettin how many K's per liter as that isn't why you buy a high performance vehicle.Let's face facts, the T gets shit mileage because it's made to go fast.The T gets shit mileage because it has a tiny tank to reduce weight.The T was never intended for touring, commuting or mileage crunching
although that's what we all do including me. This is a legalized road missle that burns through petrol like a crackhead goes through lottery winnings and as stated by higher officials of this an other forums " If you want reliable, efficient, comfortable, boring then get a Honda!"

a loss in fuel efficiency can be indicative of an issue with engine/electronics that's keeping the bike from running at its peak performance. 35 mpg is reasonable, but anything under 30 is not unless track ridden.

I just filled up today. This is what I got.

210km, put in 14 litres, so:
15km / litre
6.6 litres / 100km (I hate this spec but it's commonly used in Canada...)
42.5 miles / imperial gallon

I'm pretty happy with these numbers. I was riding mostly highway, riding fairly easy but of course honking on it from time to time. ;)

My bike is set up with 15/40 sprockets, Arrow Ti cans with the silencers in, that airbox mod that uses the tank to enlarge the airbox, Rapid Bike 3 fuel controller (no idea what mapping is in there but it runs great with perfect throttle control). I also have the Puig tall windscreen that takes away a bit of wind, but I ran 100km in the rain and very strong wind with my flapping rain suit so maybe I'll get even better numbers.

I just did a 2000km trip and unless I lost a few receipts the bike consumed 90.57 litres. So,

4.5l / 100km
22km / litre
62.5mi / imperial gallon

Those are very impressive numbers! Quite happy with that considering my bike setup plus the fact that I had the large Ventura Euro pack on the back and a tent, etc.

Q1. Map 1 V's Map 2?
Dont know how to check this :(
Q2. Standard or baffles IN pipes V's cored or free flow no baffles
Leo Vinice pipes, no baffles
Q3. Have you mucked with the sprockets? (ie 15 tooth front / 43 rear)
15 tooth front
Q3. What mileage do you get?
25 mpg, mostly city, only really step on it every once in a while.

I switched to Map2 two tanks ago and went from 35-40mpg to 25mpg. Fuel light goes on around 70 miles versus 90. Running cored pipes (spiral louver core with 1.5" outlet).

Map2 definitely has a better low end snap, but havent dynoed to verify difference. Obviously way richer than it needs to be. I will be picking up a Wiseco EFI controller to see if i can dial it back, and even pick up a few hp along the way...

I get about 30-35 with EVO6 and EVO6 map. Around 90 miles till light but mine is pessimistic. It sometimes takes less than 3 gallons to top off. Its nice to know I can go another 30 miles with the light on and still have about a half gallon. I would like to run it out someday for an exact number but dont want to deal with it.
