Honda Unicorn - Mileage

Hi,

I bought my Honda Unicorn in September 2008. It's just had 2 free services. The bike's performance has been excellent. But since the past few weeks I have been having problems with confused mileage. Why I say "confused mileage" is this. For a litre of petrol I would get b/w 52-56 km/ltr. But lately it has dropped to 40 km/ltr. I have verified the quantity of fuel to be 1 ltr at the bunk.

When the mileage was checked at the Honda service center it gave me 5.7 Km/100ml. I made sure that the bike wasn't tuned before checkin the mileage so as to give them the exact figures. I was surprised by the outcome. Immediately after that when I checked the mileage by pouring 1 ltr in the tank, I ended up with 40 km/ltr!

The service engineers tell me that the tank has some kind of a raised platform to the right so I have to get the fuel poured to the left side of the tank. Is there any logic in this? If that was the case why would I get 56 consistently?

Have any of the users come accross such a weird problem? I have the same problem even with the Eterno. Please help me. Thank you. God bless.

Thanking you,
Allan.

Hi,

I bought my Honda Unicorn in Nov 2008. It's just had 2 free services. The bike's performance has been excellent. There is compromise in any aspect since my driving quite rash i am getting the mileage of 55 upto the speed of 60 kmph. Be sure to turn off petrol valve in shutdown condition and keep the byke in idling condition in morning times for 30 sec @ 4000 rpm. its gives better results
For any queries send at yashwanth_kmr@yahoo.co.in

HELLO I AM VERY PROUD OF HONDA PRODUCT. I WANT TO PURCHASE A HONDA 150CC BIKES. BUT I AM EXPECTING MORE THAN 65 KM/L MILEAGE. HONDA ALWAYS CONSIDER FUEL EFFICENCY. KINDLY DO NECESSARY MODIFICATION IN MILEAGE AND STYLE FOR THE NEW EDITION UNICORN. I AM MUCH CONFUSED ABOUT THE MILEAGE AND STYLE
 
Can anyone tell me whether anyone has ever got a solution from addressing the problem in this site ??? what can one expect by sharing his / her grienvance here ?? Pl. let me know. Does HONDA India really care to take note of issues discussed here ?
 
I bought Honda Unicorn 8 months back. for the first 2 months it delivered 53-54kms per litre. Since then (after the second Honda Free Service) i started getting a poor mileage between 35-40 per litre. I complained twice but all in vain. first time the honda people tuned my carbourator, cleaned the air filter recheked my break, cluch and wheels; it was of no use. Second time they opened the carbourater altogether and cleaned it again saying now it is 100% done. but to my surprise again my bike never went above 35km per litre. I am totally helpless as what to do now in this case. Can anbody guess what exactly the problem can be. Is with the engine or what??? please advise as how to deal with the honda people and what are other solutions. till date my bike has run over 6600kms approximately.

The problem is not with your bike. Its with the quantity of petrol that you are getting for 1lt in different filling stations. These days all filling stations are tampered. I faced similare issue. Its just because of petrol quantity and quality.

Hi,

Seriously I have the same problem. When we drive the bike with 100 ml test it gave me amazingly 5.2 kmpl. but when full my tank to its capacity (12 ltrs) it gives me some where around 500 kms and comes to resrve (it means when divided by 12 comes to 41 kmpl) really dont understand the logic behind.

Please check the avarage reserve to reserve every time, note down the reading when your bike gets reserved & then after fill the perrol what you want then after when it gets reserved measure how many KM bike ran from reserve to reserve and divide by how many litre pertol you filled. you got the exact milage.
