How to Improve Your Motorcycle's Fuel Economy

Make Use of High Quality Fuel and Additives

Fuel and fuel additives technology have advanced tremendously during the last years. This means that there are options out there that can help you save fuel and money in the long run, as well as lower your bike's contribution to air pollution. For instance, high quality fuel can even care for your motorcycle's fuel system, ensuring it stays in mint condition for longer. As far as fuel additives go, AMSOIL's Motorcycle Octane Boost is the best in the business, as it can help you get the most mileage out of your fuel.

Take Good Care of the Engine

Since the engine is the main component that uses fuel in order to get your motorcycle moving, then it's imperative that you take good care of it, so it can perform to its fullest, and avoid using up fuel unnecessarily. The healthier it is, the better it uses up fuel. The more stressed out and overworked it is, the more energy it will need to keep going. One of the best things you can do to help it out is to keep up with its synthetic oil changes. Doing one every now and again will ensure the engine will stay lubricated and protected, which will positively affect its performance, its fuel efficiency, and its life expectancy.  

Help your engine perform more smoothly and waste less fuel with AMSOIL 20W-50 Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil, the top performing synthetic oil in Show Low.

Maintain Your Motorcycle Properly

The worst off your motorcycle is, the more fuel it will waste in order to keep you going. That's why, if your goal is to have a greener vehicle, then you absolutely need to maintain your motorcycle in top shape. For example, aside from the engine, you should have the braking system, the tires, the fuel system, and other key components inspected by a professional mechanic on a regular basis to ensure maximum fuel efficiency. Not only is it necessary that you take it to a mechanic, but that you notice its performance each time you ride it. This, to spot any issues early on and get them fixed promptly.

Ride Around Lightly

As stated above, the more stressed the engine is, the more fuel it will waste. For that reason, you need to ride around lightly, since a heavier motorcycle will be more difficult for the engine to move around. A few things you can do to that end:
  • ride with only the necessities (avoid riding with too many motorcycle accessories)
  • try to keep wind resistance at a minimum (don aerodynamic gear and try not to ride against the wind)
Thought these tips are simple, they can actually help you ride a lot more smoothly and in a more fuel-efficient manner.

Don't Get Too Crazy

Something that can definitely impact your wallet, your fuel efficiency, your CO2 emissions, and your safety, is riding your motorcycle like a total madman. When you speed recklessly, stop suddenly, take sharp turns, do stunts, and more, you're making the engine work harder to keep up with your demands. Go at a gentler pace to keep your safety, fuel consumption, and your personal economy intact.  

Plan Your Routes

Finally, one of the more obvious ways to take care of your fuel is to be more mindful of where you're going. Plan your outings well, so that you don't ride around unnecessarily, wasting fuel and contributing to air pollution.
