Nope
I just know how far I can go on a tank.
It changes dramatically on how I ride.
If Im just cruising around, then its about 150 to a tank.

I'm anal for record keeping, so I can confidently say I consistently get 50mpg. As with others, it's slightly less (47-8) if I'm revving my 500cc for lots of passing.

I check mine all the time on everything I drive/ride. It is a good way to see any problems going on with your machine...

Get about 30-40 on the bike... depending on how much easy h/w riding I do...

Yep... every time. I usually consistantly get 40 mpg +/- 1. But like was said, if I'm heavy on the throttle for most of the tank it goes down a bit. My lowest was 35 something and my highest was 47.63

Oh yea and the Accord, with the a/c blasting... 28 in town and 33 on the highway. Still not bad for the old 364k mile beast!

Not on the bike, but I check it on the car sometimes.

short of filling up and running it empty what are the ways to find your mpg? Now i get low to mid fortys depending on my mood.
Set your trip meter to zero when you fill up. Then the next time you fill up, whether you ran almost empty or not, divide the miles from your trip meter by the # of gallans you put in the tank. Reset your trip meter to check again the next time.

If you don't have a trip meter, then you have to write down the number of miles on the bike at fillup and then do the math at the next fillup to see how many miles you rode/drove. Again, divide that mileage by gallons to find gas mileage.

And also fill up to the same spot everytime to keep it consistent. I always fill up until it reaches the bottom left corner of the filler hole
