GL1800 Mileage

I just bought a 2007 GL1800 used and rode it 900miles back home. At freeway speeds (75+) I got around 40mpg. If I went under that I got around 44mpg. Is this sound about right because the guy I bought it from said 50+. I didn't believe him but I don't really know what to expect. Any input would be appreciated

I have checked my mileage many times and I have gotten as little as 40 and as much as 50, don't ask me why.

If your getting 40 MPG at 75+ thats very good. Most wings will get about 40 MPG under 3000 PRM's once you go over that it will drop a lot. The way you ride and the speed you ride will cause the mileage to vary a lot,If your getting 50 MPG you must be going on a strainght doing 50 miles per hour.

Also your odometer is off by about 4 miles per hundred, check it with a GPS, you speedo is also off, it reads about 3 to 4 MPH fast at above 50 MPH. So if your odometer says you went 208 miles you actually only went 200 miles. If you take 5 gallons of gas to go 208 miles that comes out to 41.6 MPG but actually you only went 200 miles so really you are getting 40 MPG.
