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.
