  1. 1. Which type of s4 has the best fuel consumption?



Recommended Posts

Can advise how u know when bike hit reserve? I pump once the gauge starts dancing, can I tahan any longer than that? :confused:

 

 

i had met a few dancing guage b4 and draw the conculsions myself.

 

scenerio 1: mileage 300km. bike park at carpark, depend on riding style, insert key start ignition, guage started to dance.

 

have not touch reserve cos bike park, side stand on, bike tilt to left side. once start engine and bike start rolling, dancing guage stop.

 

scenerio 2: mileage 340km to 365km, depend on riding style. travelling along the road. guage dance on and off.

 

my opinion. have not touch reserve cos guage start to dance when i corner or rav hard on the trottle.

 

scenerio 3: mileage 365km to 380km onwards, depend on riding style. continuous dancing of the guage.

 

hit reserve liao. total fuel 18litre. hit reserve at 15litre. total fuel left 3 litre. by calculation, if 25litre per km. still can go for 75 km when continuous dancing off guage is observe.

Thanks for the detailed description. My gauge dances way before it hits 300 km. It's amazing how some bros here can hit way over 300 km before they need to top up. I will never try to go for 380 km, cause might end up walking to the petrol station... heh heh.

 

I ride mostly 110-120 kmh on highways most of the time, and also like to pull away quickly from the lights. But still cannot imagine why my consumption is so high. :pity:

judging from your riding style, if i'm not wrong, your gauge will start dancing at about 270km.

discipline yourself to ride around less than 5k rpm , that will be 80kmph at hi ways and anyways or less on the next top up. dun drag at all, 3 to 4k rpm change gear. i bet you'll be smiling at the milage u have. i tried once and it goes to about 360km before dancing. btw i weigh 120kgs :lol:

not really, still can change gear smoothly. no doubt that 4 to 5 k is nice. my habit is 5 from 3rd gear onwards.

ok, will try and save some petrol lah, but really ride to enjoy also, so riding too slow also I think I will find boring after a while. Anyway, I am only half your weight, so maybe can save some petrol there... heh heh.. tks for the tip. :D :D

Many factors contribute to mileage done.

 

1) tire pressure

2) sprockets and chain drive condition. The chain drive is a very essential part of the bike. Take good care of it.

3) Behaviour of ride. If you average ride above 7rpm, naturally the mileage reduces.

4) If you pillion alot, it might contribute to the factor. The total weight of the bike have to carry is also one factor.

5) Carb setting of bike, too rich? Overly rich?

6) Overall condition of bike. Who knows maybe petrol could be leaking. Check all conditions of fuel hoses periodically.

 

More weight = more drag = power loss = turn more throttle to reach your desired range = more gas = bad mileage.

to add to that,

 

7) the type of petrol used

8) fuel additives.

9) type of air filter

10) brake pads rubbing against brake disk at all times (gotta jack up ur bike and spin the wheel to see how much resistance)
