Right i would work this out but im sure people are more bored than i am

So im picking up my piaggio fly 100cc scooter tommorow and it has a 7.5 litre tank - ive been told that it can get 125 miles to a gallon so how many miles would a full tank last and at modern day prices what would be the cost (unleaded) ?

1 gallon = 4.54 litres

tank holds 1.65 gallons

125 per gallon = 206 miles

7.5 litres @ 95p = £7.12

do they really do 125mpg?

Approx

125 * 7.50/4.54 = 206 Miles per tank maximum

at say 95.9p per litle about 3.5pence per mile, bargain!

7.5 litres = 1.6483 gallons

125 miles x 1.6483 = 206 miles on a full tank

current unleaded price is 94p per litre = £7.05 to fill tank

Approx 3.5p per mile

They do from 90miles to 125 miles a gallon but it depends on the quality of the fuel - might put in that bp petrol that has increased fuel efficiency

So about £7 for a full tank and that will et me about 200miles :p sweet
My car atm is doing 25mpg and costs me £39 for a full tank

Repped all 3 of you thanks

It depends how you drive it aswell, if you fly along at full throttle you'll use more fuel and hence you'll get less than 200 miles a tank.

I find that the Shell VPower gives me the best MPG in my Cougar (about 23 MPG around town compared to about 20.5MPG with Tesco premium).
