Gasoline is not the same in all places so MPG will also be effected. There are 45 about blends of Gasoline when all the Octane ratings are figured in.
Summer and winter gas will also change MPG. and don't forget altitude.
I have 2004 K1200RS, a Remus with a power chip and ride it like I stole it. My last trip on the way to and from Death Valley, I cruised at 130+ recorded 440 miles I got 37 MPG.
The Power at below sea level altitude is GREAT!!
When in Las Vegas 2,100 ft altitude, with our bad gas I get 35 MPG. The chip does not help the low end engine power, so I must use higher RPM, using more of the Golden Juice.
Before the Chip I would get about 2 MPG better.
