    Default Help USA members checking gas mileage in Canada

    Hi, I would like to bring to your attention that in Canada the gas is sold by the liter and the RSV takes 22 liters.To give an example I took a ride with a full tank of gas,and when we pulled in for gas I had put on 284km, the bike took 17 liters which means I had 5 liters left with no reserve light showing yet. I figure that I got 50 miles per Canadian gallon or 6 liters per 100 km.To make it a bit easier I divided 284 km by 17 lts =16.70 is the kilometer liter that I averaged.I grew up with miles & gallons but the government changed things and now we have metric measurements. I am going to give this site to anyone who is going to travel to Canada and you will see how to convert the US gallon to the Canadian or UK " imperial gallon etc.or liters I hope this will help my USA friends.

    ps: with the above calculation the RSV should get 350 km on a full tank !

    NOTE: It was brought to my attention that the link provided here by Mobile was no longer valid. Here is another that should give you the needed information.
