Hey, new guy over here!

Hi all.

I just joined the forums and am really interested in getting the 100+ mpg figures.

I drive a 125cc 4 stroke motorbike (Yamaha YBR125)

Really great bike and good fuel economy too (fuel injected)

looking into the viability of getting an mpguino for it.

how realistic do you think 100+mpg is?

Welcome to EM! It sounds like a cool project to extend the MPGuino to your motorbike. I think user dcb is the expert, so I think he will chime in soon.

I think 100 is within reach, but will depend on driving technique and speed.

Welcome to the forum. I'd love to see someone put fuel economy instrumentation on a bike. Please keep us posted on the idea.
