Took the RG out to Mount Rushmore and Sturgis a few weeks back. Trailered it behind my Ram2500 and Lance Camper up to Fort Collins, CO then rode to Spearfish for the campsite. Gassed up in Cheyenne at mile 7 and made it all the way to Deadwood, SD on one tank. Googlemaps puts it at 295 miles. Took 5.15 gallons in Deadwood and I was showing 8 miles of range left. For an MPG of 57.28. I would not have believed it had I not done it.
Because the wife was driving the TC, I kept it to 65-67 MPH on I25, then about the same on the backroads.
Of course the next few days the MPG's were not quite so generous heading down to Rushmore and Custer. Still did fairly well at about 48. Usually here in SoCal I'm getting around 38.
So, good fuel mileage is possible. :-D
