I get around 38 to 40 mpg pushing it down the highway maintaining around 70 mph. But as mentioned before, I'm on the large side. On a recent ride in the mountains, I got 48, but it was a lot of riding 50 to 60, and 8 to 10,000 feet asl. Depending on where I'm riding, I start looking for fuel around 150. 2 hours of riding and I'm ready to stand up and walk around a bit and take a pull off the water bottle. I believe the F has a 5.1 gallon tank with 1.1 of it being the reserve. I may be overcautious, but I don't like to get to the bottom of the tank and risk pulling any crap that has formed or taken up residence there.

I like vintage bikes because they take me away from the clutter of technology that I work with everyday and back to a simpler time of mechanical elegance and simplicity.. "ninadm"

I fill up, reset my tripometer and i get about 120 miles before it starts to sputter, I have run out and had to switch to reserve a couple of times and one i remember distinctly, the tripometer said 137 miles. I do warm up my bike everytime i start it though so that eats gas. Never really sat down to figure out MPG just keep an eye on my tripometer.
Thanks guys. I've only filled up twice on this bike. First time at 100 ,second at 125 miles. First was 2.7 gallons and the second was 3.4 gallons. So if 4 gallons gets you to reserve looks like I can go 125+ easily. Thanks again for the help!
