GSA LC - Fuel Consumption
« on: February 06, 2017, 06:39:07 pm »
I would like to know what is the GSA riders experience regarding average fuel consumption on the GSA LC, at decent touring speeds.

Have not done any long distance/touring with mine yet, the rides I have was locally and my throttle hand probably a bit on the heavy side…. ::)

Want to plan a lekker long distance tour and get more or less an idea of what to budget regarding fuel costs. Will be travelling light, solo, with top box and saddle bag.

I "tour"to work everyday :p

Here is my logs since new - take note the beginning (of 19/l-22l) was testing phases and riding it in. My best 22 was at slow riding, changing at 3k RPM and keeping it below or at 100km.

My current (about 17km/l) is riding it between 5-7k RPM and no speed limit  :peepwall: . The dip where it dropped below 17 was at about 1.5bar tyre pressures.

Watse App gebruik jy?
Solo travellers should not be considered unsociable, they are expressing their independence until they choose to do otherwise.

Average 17.5 km/l (5.7 l/100km) mixed.

16 km dirt, 20 km highway, 4 km city each day.
I don't always drop my bike, but when I do, I prefer to drop her in front of a crowd

Another one (2 images show Km/L or L/100km). A bit heavy, but I commute every day without taking the highway.

I have no figures really, but normally I get about 500 km on a tank. When touring Transkei recently, fully loaded with pillion and some nasty winds, this came down to about 380-420 maximum on a tank. And in some places I couldn't even ride faster than 100 in strong wind.

Weight makes a huge difference on the bike

Al wat ek bedoel is maar dat gewig noodwendig 'n rol speel- ek was net baie verbaas oor hoe groot rol dit speel.

Sonder om hier in 'n fisika lesing betrokke te raak dink ek daardie wind waarvan jy praat was die grootste invloed.  As die massa eers beweeg het dit geen invloed nie (Newton se eerste wet - jammer, ek kon myself nie keer nie  ;D). Die windweerstand neem toe met die kwadraat van die spoed.  Hoe die goed gepak is maak ook 'n groot verskil, baie meer as die gewig.  Meer oppervlak vir windweerstand, meer petrol (en natuurlik BAIE meer as jy vining ry).
I started biking as an under achiever and it went downhill from there...

Ah Newton. Jy neem aan ons ry gelyk pad heeltyd. Nie waar nie.
Vandag in amper geen wind die onmiddellike gebruik gemeet en volgens komper wissel dit teen konstante snelheid van 132 (GPS) km/h tussen 5 l/100 km en 6 l/100km. Die verskil was die energie wat die fiets moes uitoefen om my teen 'n bultjie op te tel, vs. as my massa help, om afdraend te ry.

Maar: ek glo die wind maak oor die algemeen meer saak, as 'n rowwe veralgemening. We can shit the science science the shit out of this, maar die gemiddeld hang rondom 17 km / l as jy beskaafd ry.
