1980 GL1100 Interstate - Fuel Economy ?

Postby Wingsconsin » Tue Aug 07, 2012 9:28 am



Presuming the bike is in average to better condition of tune....

What is the anticipated Fuel Economy (MPG)....
1)... at 55 MPH [county highways]?
2)... at 65 MPH [interstate]?

My thoughts are that my Son rides the 1100 and I ride my 1500 when we go on trips...
I am trying to figure his 'range' versus mine...

It seems the 1100 has been only delivering about 33-35 MPG but that is mostly local city type riding and perhaps not an accurate gauge of performance. But if the 35 is correct then range is about 175 miles...? Correct..? :geek:

My 1980 GL1100 get mid to upper 30's in town, and between 43 and 47 mpg on the highway at 70-75 mph
