Friends

I just brought my hornet 3 weeks ago . what is the average fuel consumption of 250 CC 115 Chassis (98) hornet

my one does 15-18 km per liter. seems the spark plugs are very old and air cleaner also looks old and dusty. I cleaned with the petrol . if I change them will it make any difference

please advice

sira

if you really want a good millage i'd suggest
go for a good carburetor clean , sparkplug and airfilter change, perhaps try iridium plugs :hat

Use local air filter or something cheap because washing air filter with petrol only is not enough, i think you need to lube it too 8o
Mine is a 2003 Version, Sensor Carb Mod. which gives 25+ kmpl no doubt!

I can usually get approximately 220 km before I have to switch to reserve, then from there I take it up to 300 Km's and re-fuel. That's me commuting to and from work every day, it's obviously less if I'm out on a country ride ;)

yes, sounds about right,

normally the fuel tank is 16L and you have 2 liters for reserve or more. so 220/14 = 15.7

so I think this is normal fuel consumption and not to mess with carb

thank you
