If i may add to this Grabcon,
A US Gallon is   3.79 litres,
Imperial Gallon 4.55 litres

Makes your average in Imperial Gallons around 57. 6 MPG. which is pretty close to my best ever.

Hartley. All I can say is the numbers are what they are. I track every fill and let the app do the calculations. But it looks like the app doesn't do a great job of averaging. App shows 47.99 but 15911 / 316.726 = 50.24. hmmm better yet. LOL. I do not know if the app throws out highest and lowest numbers.

Grabcon, I wasnt doubting your numbers mate, just noting the difference between US gallon and Imperial gallon.

I understand. I would question it too. I am going to take a SWAG and say the elevation that I ride at has a significant influence on MPG. When I ride near sea level I get 40 to 42 MPG. But oh my god does that thing have power.

Is anyone seeing any mileage difference between ethanol blended (10%) gas and pure gas?

I typically don't see leaded gas where I ride so nothing to compare. I would also think that you would need to run a few tank fulls to get some numbers to compare.
