The reason I haven't been updating my fuel logs:
 
Not specifically this one, but I've been hauling crap around for the last few tanks, ranging from lawn mowers to motorcycles, stone to bricks and logs.

Yep, it's a Minivan. :thumbup:

I R teh Winrar!

Anyone wanna guess what breed/year/model/size of motorcycle it is?

My take on fuel logs is they should be all or none. It ain't a contest where we win by picking out the "bad" entries.

Honda GL1000?

I don't pick out the "Bad" entries, but the ones where I'm loaded to capacity for any large portion of the tank aren't exactly representative of the norm. Except lately, I guess.

I could have started another fuel log to show what I"m getting while hauling crap around in my 4 cylinder 3 speed auto van... :thumbup: I didn't though, because the numbers hauling are still above EPA... LOL.

I will post this next fill up, though. Even though I just hauled this thing at 70MPH home for like 140 miles, after a 140 mile trip up to get it, again, at like 70 MPH. I believe I may have still gotten close to or right at 30 MPG for this tank, based on the fuel gauge. I'd at least guess it's close to my normal average, but I've been EOC as much as possible this tank.

And tell us again how hauling a few hundred lbs (about 2 passengers worth) in an enclosed vehicle would have any effect on your mileage over 140 mi @ 70 MPH ????

Maybe if now you go "Well I forgot to mention it was all stop and go back roads" :rolleyes:
Like frank lee said, you cant take the good and dump the bad. Heck I'd love to dump all my hauling tanks so would some others that use open trucks / trailers for work but we don't.
It's kind of like the thread about deflating your EPA #s to make your percentages seem bigger .........

Carlos -

Of course, your Google skills are WIN!

Everything on it is stock, but it sat in a field for a year, and was repainted at least once, so the tank decals are gone, etc.

I wish it came w/ the bags and trunk, front fairing, etc. They'd have been nice pieces.

I actually am using the whole frame, 1000cc engine, transmission, and driveline for a reverse trike project I'll probably never finish. (Or even start, the way things are seemingly going lately.) Better to have the parts and never start, than to start and not be able to get the parts.

Yeah, I do that, even though it hurts sometimes. But thanks to you, I now add my Saturn's "oil burning" to my fuel log (:mad:). If I have a bad tank, I document the reason in the details section of the fuel log. Almost unlimited room for bellyaching there.

To be honest, I can do what I want with it. It's for my benefit, not yours.

Frankly, I remove the tanks that have a large amount of hauling things, because as I said before, they don't represent the average, or even the norm.

That bike weighs nearly 800 lbs in full trim. It probably weighs at least 600 the way it sits right now. You must have some fat friends.

Also, I wouldn't "go" anything with quotes. :rolleyes:



Carlos - that's not the fuel tank, either. The tank is under the seat:

...Fuel pump, a motorcycle first. What appeared to be a fuel tank was actually the electronics bay and radiator overflow. The real fuel tank was placed under the seat.
