It depends on where and how your riding . but that is very poor vs. my 07 wr450 with the super moto setup on it I've got as high as 54 mpg out of it but that is on the road regeared and rejetted on a dyno. in the trails with the knobbies I get 36- 42 mpg .I just think you need to get your bike tuned .

I get about 45mpg trail & dual sport riding.

I can go 100 miles on the stock 2003 gas tank before switching over to reserve. We ride single track, whoops, street, and gravel roads up to 75 mph.

My bike has the James Dean jet kit, Yoshimura RS-3 full exhaust, and 15-50 gearing.
