Piaggio skipper 125 4t high fuel consumption about 7l/100km
Carburetor cleaned and adjusted as piaggio recommends (new oil and filters , tires are okay )
What can be there for such a high fuel consumption

Thanks

You've checked that over multiple tank fills?

Well, you have the obvious possible fuel leakage somewhere, a mechanical problem in the transmission, lots of start and stop uphill, rider weight...

PS. for rider weight, I don't mean you are fat, but it is related to size engine (125) and the actual rider driving attitude. Perhaps a 300cc in the same environment would/could use less fuel...

In your case, I'm betting some sort of fuel leakage...

Might be the transmission is in poor shape. Slipping/worn belt, clutch etc.
I used to have a 125 skipper many years ago. It was an ok bike, very heavy frame, lots of plastic and a silly name.
