I have read that the RE will get around 80 - 85 miles per gallon. Is that a US gallon or a real one? The reason I ask is that I am getting about 65mpg (in the USA) which is around 80 miles per Imperial gallon. I have around 1,400 miles on my G5.
Currently £6.23 ($9.86) per Gallon !!
I'm a new rider with a 2010 C5, just breaking it in. I've ridden about 800 miles, mostly in city traffic below 40mph with a lot of stop-and-go, some intermittent short stretches of highway. Almost all my riding has been in New York City. The best I've achieved is about 42 MPG (US). Is this normal? Should I be expecting better?For what it's worth, I'm a heavy person (250 lbs). My shifting technique is probably fine - I have 30 years experience driving a manual transmission car.
