My Honda CBF125 on 150mpg :)

Hi there

Im Daniel Maia, and im from Portugal

Bought a Honda CBF125cc on April of this year, and simply: love it

My best mileage was 1.56L by 100km, it means 150mpg

Hope you like it

Hi Daniel,
Congratulations! Well done, and indeed your CBF looks good. I have the CBF600, but mpg is lower as you can see.
What's your overall, average fuel consumption since you own the bike?

Hi Daniel,
Thanks! You low mpg was not one lucky shot. Great.
But looking at the link: does 'maintenance' also include an oil change? Is it normal you changed oil that much in less than one year and so few miles?
My Honda CBF needs an oil change every 12.000 km or every year (what comes firs).
You're spending almost as much money on oil and maintenance as on fuel

Re: My Honda CBF125 on 150mpg :)

Those numbers are impressive...

What speed are you doing those MPG. Are you mostly in city? or you do rural road, because you can't go on highway, well here in north america. What is the top speed (well the speed where you can cruise without being at the limit of the 125cc...).

And how is the ride, have you ever ride a scooter? if so could you compare please.

In portugal, you can run this bike almost all year long for cheap, especially in europe where the gas is more expensive, thats great.

You're probably right. I actually spend more on maintenance/tax/insurance than on fuel (new tires, clutch plates, battery, water pump, valve shims, fuel filter, drive belt/sprocket, front brake disc/pads (was a mistake by the first workshop - irl the front rim got deformed on the bad roads...) over the last 45000km - and mechanics' wage).
Oil change period is 10000km for F650s.

Maintenance costs were lower for Ciliegia, but she did not need new tires so far.

(And I'm behind my mileage logs, time to update...)

Re: My Honda CBF125 on 150mpg :)

Hi there guys, sorry for not keep updated,

I run 90% on city and rural roads, and i can run it on high ways also,

My top speed is around 125km/h, but my best mileage i did with a very calm down driving

This motor only takes 1L of oil, and Honda recommends change it every 3000km. Each maintenance on Honda costs near 27€ (36$).

Past 10 000km, the maintenace will be every 4000km i think

I think the next mileage will be a little better than 150mpg, lets see

Re: My Honda CBF125 on 150mpg :)

Last tank, did 1081.1km with 15.70L of gas, it means 162mpg.

Some tips to improve my mileage?

I shut off engine at every "downhill", 40km/h at flat roads, climbs usually fix a certain speed, like 30, or 35km/h, @ 3300RPM, idling as most as i can..and so on
