June 12, 2019 / 516 KM @ 60 miles per gallon

Yesterday put on 516 KM , and was using Lucas engine treatment , 1.5 oz per tank, I got 60 miles to the gallon yesterday. This too needs to be monitored, I fueled up when the low fuel started to flash, plus about 60 KM, so it appears that I had 3 liters in the tank, with 430 KM traveled according to my GPS. It was a windy day, and I have never had that good a mileage before, bought the Lucas stuff years ago and used it whenever I thought of it. This time it was a full tank, plus I have a small bottle with 1.5 oz in it for fueling up.Yes this should be another post, did some viewing about ethanol and the fact it has 30% less energy and that several stations in Canada sell ethanol free fuel at 91 octane, the price difference for a 7% gain isn't worth the $$$$.
So I am getting use to the new flash, about 2000 KM on it now, there has been mention of converting back, the best way I can relate to that is like selling my 2015 and buying back my 2007 Versys, ain't happening.So next ride I may look at longer distance and monitor using fuel treatment. The big guess is the amount, 1 oz, 1.5 oz or 2 oz. per tank. Could take all summer whenever it gets here

10% ethanol fuel, which is common here in the US does have less energy in it, about 3%. An interesting fact is that the stoic ratio for gasoline is 14.7:1 I don't tune to 14.7 to 1, I tune to 14.2:1 . why? Because that's stoic for 10% ethanol fuel, which is what we will most likely be running in our bikes.
