I promised some stats. for those of you with either an enquiring mind, or nothing better to do!
OK, so as I said in an earlier post, we went quite a long way in only a few days, 2160 miles to be precise.
We used 212.27 litres of petrol/gasoline, mainly 98RON.
This gives an average consumption of 10.18miles/litre or if you like, 45.79 miles/imp.gallon.
Harley has a 1450cc engine and a five speed gearbox.
Now for the WOW statistic!
In the mountains we climbed a staggering 10,466metres, or 34,337feet, vertical height. Mount Everest is 8,848metres, 29,029feet.
Not bad points to ponder.
The Heart of the Matter!
Hey old chap, that’s a pretty impressive mpg. Maybe carbs and enormous pistons ain’t so bad after all! I take it 98 RON is what we call ‘super unleaded’? Do you notice much performance benefit if so?
Correct,”super unleaded”, I use it because mostly I get fuel from supermarkets and it seems got suit the old girl better! At home I just use normal 95RON.
