Just filled up the 2018 Yamaha Star Venture Transcontinental today after putting 218.2 miles on the tank of fuel two up riding with the wife.

It took 4.736 gallons of fuel, so 218.2 miles divided by 4.736 = 46.07 MPG

The fuel tanks holds a total of 6.6 gallons of fuel so deduct 4.736 gallons and there was still 1.864 gallons of fuel in the tank.

Great fuel mileage with a fuel tank that will give you some great range to go with it.

There are currently 23,888 miles on the odometer and I have had the Yamaha for 1 year 6 months this month.

Nice to see your post RV!! I moved to Southern Utah 3 months ago. Not sure what's going on but we rode double to Cedar Breaks National Monument up to 10,300 feet. I've been averaging 52 MPG's. This included driving up and down from Cedar City at 80 MPH. Beautiful riding day. This also happened in Wyoming and Colorado 2 years ago. I rode from the west entrance of Yellowstone to Red Lodge Montana on 1/2 tank 170 miles on 3 gallons. About 57 MPG's I'm still looking at this bike for a potential replacement for my 13 XCT. Fortunately my XCT runs great at 60K miles and runs like a top.
