    Depends on how you ride and what, if any, engine modifications you have made. My '86FLHTC with an S&S Super E carb, Andrews cam, and Screamin' Eagle slip on mufflers used to average about 36mpg. My '07FLHTCU with a Screamin' Eagle breather and Rhinehart True Duals, averages right at 40mpg. My sons' '05 Super Glide regularly got 48-50mpg.

    My 09 Ultra (96ci) with Slip-Ons gets 40/US Gal. A lot of it is HWY speed and some of that is at +70 MPH.

    07 Ultra get about 35mph. This is with Rineharts true duals and stage 1 with the Dobeck Gen 3. Not the best and less than expected.

    This is exactly what I have and I get similar mileage. Another way that I look at it is I can fill my bike up with gas and ride about 180 miles before the fuel light comes on. So, a 5 gal. gas tank going roughly 180 miles is 37 mpg.. 180 divided by 5 = 37. One day I'd like to see how far I can ride before I actually run out of gas but like others have said, it depends on how you ride, wind conditions, fuel. etc. and I really don't want the hassle of running out of gas. :)

    Since I switched from the TFI to the Gen4 I can dial my touring mileage in so that I am running 200-230 miles per tank depending on conditions.
    If I ride solo I don't check mileage,twist the right hand too much for that.

    Same with my 01 Ultra set up the same. Just checked it this past weekend. Two up, no real highway but 45mph roads.
