Could anybody please tell me how to measure the mileage of my Pulsar 180 bike accurately? I have tried by emptying my tank. I failed miserably, and I had to take my bike walking long distance.

As I said over here, mileage calculations are pretty easy:

  1. Fill your tank.
  2. Drive a well-known standard route. For example, my commute is almost always the same from day to day.
  3. Drive to gas station and re-fill the tank. Note amount filled and cost.
  4. Take the total miles driven from steps 1 - 3 and divide by the number of gallons filled in step 3. That's your miles per gallon (bigger is better).
  5. Take the total miles driven from steps 1 - 3 and divide by the cash paid in step 3. That's your miles per dollar (bigger is better).
  6. Repeat steps 1-5 until you feel like you have a good data set.

there is a simple idea.

1.while reserve please reset your trip and you need not fill petrol immediately while reserve . 2.fill petrol and note the price and quantity.and turn the knob from reserve to main position 3.while next reserve.check the kilometer in the trip meter and divide the kilometer with the quantity of petrol you filled.

first time this logic may not satisfy you.please think well.you will satisfy.
