I am getting about 120 miles per 3.5 gallons, the other 0.5 gal I guess is reserve so I have not have to fuel a full tank yet as soon I the light comes on I fill it up. Just wondering if you guys are getting more or less mileage. Again this is a brand new 2010 Z1000.

Might be the way youre riding it, Franklin...

Im getting around 120-130 miles to 3 gallons, depending upon how much stupid fun I have in my commute. Ive noted that the fuel signal starts blinking, and I get to the gas station to fill it and it only takes three gallons. I think the reserve is one gallon. Thats what Ive noticed, anyway. Receipt always says 3.0125 (or somewhere close to *just* over 3Gal) gallons that I purchased...

just got an 07 Thursday.....friggin love it ...but the gearing doesn't allow for high gas mileage....my light came on at 150 miles....but being used to my other bikes that get 45-50 miles per gallon...and considering the z holds 4.9 gallons of fuel .....i proceeded to the next town....well when the odo hit 175 miles it was lights out......being at the top of a hill i coasted for 1/4 mile and into a gas station in the middle of nowhere (I'd rather be lucky than good) put in 4.75 gals and off we go.....so ......34. something per gal.....gearing would help and the motor can pull it ....just good to know the limits

my '07 gets 32 to 38 mpg depending how I flog it. It had (until yesterday) a +3 in the rear. I just changed to a +1 (they didn't have a +3) and expect a little better mileage out of it.
I'm going out today and see what happens.

I have seen anywhere from 32mpg-42mpg, but get an avg of 37mpg just like the reviews for this bike said it would.

getting 42mpg out of it, was NO FUN. 32 mpg is MUCH MORE FUN, but just doesn't last long!

It was raining yesterday... thats why the 42 mpg.
No downshifting, below 4k rpm upshifting, and 55 mph for me to pull off 42mpg.
