A note on fuel consumption.

When I originally fitted the Dynojet kit to my Honda, I made a mistake with the needle, which meant that fuel consumption was horrendously high.

In general, I had thought that the increased performance from the stage 1 upgrade (carburetter and exhaust pipes) would come at a cost in terms of fuel consumption; after all, as Witold says "horses like to drink!".

That said, I am pleased to report that the Honda is returning excellent mpg readings (perhaps because of more efficient carburation and the larger gearbox sprocket): measured in terms of range, I can go about 120 miles before hitting reserve, with a further 25 miles before refuelling. Not bad...
