Fuel Saving Tips

Fully Synthetic Oil

Using a modern high-performance fully synthetic (sometimes called double ester) engine oil will not only look after your engine better than mineral oil or semi-synthetic oil, but will improve your fuel economy and power output by decreasing friction. This may also improve your cold-start performance, it did for me over the winter and if you have a wet clutch (as many motorcycles do), improve clutch feel, reducing drag but leaving a positive bite. Use the same grade oil (as in 10W40 or similar) as marked on your filler cap or in the owners handbook. The increase in oil costs will be more than offset by the improvements in efficiency over the lifetime of the oil.
