I second that.... I have seen YouTube reviews with anywhere from 50-70 mpg/ tank fill up depending on how hard the bike is pushed.

Awesome gas mileage, 300 is a sipper. I wonder how much higher the MPG rating can get. W

If 50 mpg is the worst it'll get, while flogging the bike, that's sweet.

My first tank of the bike I forgot to track fuel. But my second tank I ran 65 mpg and I didnt run her easy haha I was twisting that throttle pretty good ( I believe in varying rpm's for break in)
I'm on my third tank now, havwnt depleted that yet, almost 500 or so miles on it. still at 3/4 full tank or better so we will see.

My driving is mixed city and highway, but most roads are 50mph or so for th ebulk of my driving

I fix things till they cant be fixed anymore =D Haste makes waste, take the time and things will last.

To get 45mpg you must be revving the heck out of that thing. Shift up, dude!
