GL1800 Trike mileage? Depends on type of riding, you'll be dragging rear air brakes (fenders) and spinning up extra flywheels (rear wheels & tires) and you're gonna be accelerating /hauling extra weight every where you go. Higher speeds like 75-80 will greatly add air resistance.

Easy, smooth accelerations, 55-60s highways, you likely will see mid 30s up to near 40 mpg.

Rapid accelerations, higher speeds. etc, then you can expect less mpg.
