Fuel Saving Tips

If you really want high mileage...

... dig that trail bike out of the garage and use it as much as you can! My Honda CRF230L is getting great mileage and it's still apparently breaking-in. (1300 miles) When I bought it the dealer had a yellow sticker on it that said "85+ mpg". I thought it was optimistic at first. My first two tanks gave me 73 mpg but it's been rising all spring and summer. My last 3 fill-ups averaged 80.5 mpg and I weigh 200 lbs. I haven't seen my mileage max out yet and if you weigh 140 or 150 I can now see 85 mpg is not out of the realm of possibility at all. Keep an eye on my fuel chart and you will see where it maxes out as I will chart every tank here. It's also fun to ride and happily goes where the roads end. It climbs steep hills with ease. I get compliments at work from the machinists who admire how well made it is. They pointed-out the quality of the fit, finish, hardware, and materials used. Best $3500 I ever spent. Awesome!
