how to get good mileage in two wheelers

By Vaishak on Sep 29, 2008


  • 1) by not changing the gear frequently and not pressing the clutch frequently
    2) try to maintain consistent speed
    3) get the vehicle tied and towed - no need to start the engine :)
    4) finally keep it locked in the house..

  • 1.Keep speed within 50 kms
    2.Speed only as much as required, no use speeding and then applying brakes, this reduces mileage.
    3.Change gears smoothly, very smoothly.
    4.Listen to your bike, if it is making good sound it will sound like 'bood-bood-bood' and if it is bad it will sound like 'ghoo-ghoo-ghoo'. This is not a joke. Love your engine, it will talk to you.
    5.Keep changing your oil on time and service every 60 days atleast.
    6.Keep your bike clean.
    7.Do not ride in slanting position, ride straight. can email me on for further details.

  • I think Susheel has given the best answer. Let me add something. Chk tyre pressure regularly. Refill petrol from reputed pump. Always refill petrol in morning time. As in morning temp. is less. Petrol/diesel is measured by volume. When temp. is less volume decrease. U will get more petrol. If u fill it at noon when temp is more 1 liter petrol expans 2 1.1 liter so u will pay for 1.1 lit. & get only 1 lit. The variation in volume is maximum to 10% when difference in temp is more. Ideally u will get most benifit when u get it filled at 4 AM, when temp. is least.
    Dont fill the tank upto brim. Filled it at half tank. I think it is enough. U can mail me on

  • Expert TO improve mileage .
    1.Get service done as per schedule given in owners manual.
    Generaly new bikes gives good mileage as we will be getting service done regularly but as days progress its not maintained with the same enthusiasm.
    2.Run at constant speed.
    3.Check and maintain tyre pressure .
    4.Switch off engine at traffic .Electric start helps a lot for this .
    5.Do not accelerate in idling .Some people do it at signals.
