I got 1000kms out of my Ford C Max 1.6 Tdi when driving up from southern France a few years back. Does that count? If it doesn't, can't beat 230 miles on two wheels I'm afraid.

Anyone with a KTM640 adventure will easily do that one, seem to remember they can get over 500 on a tank.

And no. BMW have never released the findings of their technical report into his death and the 1200 'header shaker'.......

I've got a potential range of 280 miles and have seen 240+ out of 12 litres on my XR125l, though it would take a lot longer to get there :)

Got 213 miles out of my old 1200 Multistrada which I thought was good going from a 150bhp bike. Plus it was saying 13 miles left in the tank. Might have managed 250 if I took it really easy.

Never fill my xt660z until its done 300 plus miles on a tank to work and back. Used the fuel app in the past but not bothered now.
