Re: Gas mileage
I rarely pay attention to gas mileage, but one time I went 305 kms and used 24.5 liters of fuel.
This was really pushing it and into some strong headwinds.
For all of our American friends, that's about 35-36 mpg, although in ours MPG (Imperial), so even lower yet for US mileage (approx. 32)?
There are so many variables that affect MPG, weight of the rider(s), winds, road surface, tire pressure, quality of fuel, driving habits, etc. etc.
They say that you lose 10% mileage and 10% power when you trike.
I would say 10% power is about right, or maybe lower (maybe 5%), but MPG is higher, maybe like 15% loss.
I don't really know about the mileage versus a 2 wheeler as I'm not sure what they get , although I've heard 45 MPG.
It seems many BS about their mileage, but really who cares, so long as you are enjoying yourself.
