According to WolframAlpha, that's 51.33 kilometers per litre - which is very good. Closest I've managed so far in my 2013 PCX is a shade under 45.

You must be getting good gas milage. I'm happy if the last bar start to blink at 100 miles on the oddo. I have the 1.6 gal tank and have filled up too 1.42 on occasions. I also fill my tank to the brim.

It would depend on how fast you're riding on average. Those figures equate to 27.77 km/L which is very close to what I get at wide open throttle (On Tuesday I was WOT for most of 60km and recorded 26.09 km/L) - if you're doing city speeds you should be well over 40 km/L though (I sit around 43-45 km/L in at city speeds of 50-60km/hr).


You are right TheMaverick, when I bought the scoot i was expecting 100 mpg, but i'm riding at close to WOT when commuting to school. I'm traying to change my driving habits by accelerating slower and taking the longer way home.

Gil, your fully says average of 79.2 mpg?? Gees... if anything I would expect it closer to the advertised 100 mpg. I have gotten as high as 114 mpg and as low as 96 mpg, but 79 mpg means to me that you jump off of the line wot, then you stay that way until you reach the next light. The PCX runs nice as it is. It doesn't need to be cranked to its max to get ahead of traffic. Many of the cars these days have modified transmissions that allow for slower transition to top end, which improves gas mileage. Try riding in the middle of the traffic for a week without trying to jump ahead and you should see a good change to your average.

I'll be trying that out. Thanks for the tip. My best ever has been 104 mpg, only once though.

Pardon the slight topic deviation, but has anyone found out how many miles (or kilometers) the PCX will go after the last fuel gauge bar starts blinking, if using in the city (not highway)?


Based on what's left when i fill up after it's blinking and my mpg, i estimate 15-25 miles.

I wouldn't. As you can see here: http://www.fuelly.com/motorcycle/honda/pcx150/2013 the average is 91mpg. It seems Gil and I are both suffering from below average results. Ever since i had the dealer do the 600 mile service, mileage and top speed have been suffering. The dealer hasn't touched my bike since, but i still haven't found the problem.

Equivalent of $10 in which currency?

It costs me around about $10 in New Zealand dollars.

I think' that it might be normal, I do ride in windy conditions and do mostly highway speeds, although I try to take side roads that are ~50 mph. I have ridden in different conditions and have gotten much better results. I did notice on Fuelly.com that the LED PCX's have better MPG, although it could be due to their lower number of scoots.
