The Hummer advertised "up to" 100 mpg. Math says the 165 would get "up to" 75 mpg. 50 mpg is probably a good estimate at real world conditions. The windshield does hurt performance, but the guy in the picture looks like he's pretty much muscle - doesn't have the middle-aged beer belly so many of us now have.

So I'd go with 50. Heck, at .28/gal, it won't affect the total more than a couple bucks either way!

Jim - send us the story for the Members page.


yep, the little peanut tanks only held 1.75 gallons, and that INCLUDED the 1 quart reserve. So, with a little luck, you could probably safely go about 75 miles between fill ups. But, like the badger said, that would be in a perfect world.

When I was 21 (1961)I rode a 165cc Harley 3500 miles from Cincinnati to Las Vegas and then to Seattle. I am writing about that in my memoirs and was trying to figure out how much gas I burned. Gas was 0.28 at the time. What milage does a 165 Harley get on the road? What is the gas tank size? Thanks, I was glad to find this site. Fun stuff.
