Welcome to the forum and congrats on your new Dyna!

Your milage sounds about right. My '02 Road King gets 46 MPG on the highway but only high 20's when I'm out hotrodding.

As they say...your milage may vary.

Welcome to the site. You may get better response posting in the appropriate technical forum.

Do you mean 150 when you hit reserve? That's about 36 mpg which is about what I get when I blast down the highway at 80mph. If I am putting around, I can easily go to 166-175 before hitting reserve.

Do your plugs look good and does the bike run great? You may be OK.

Sportster aren't pieces of crap nor or they great beginners bikes. I know it sounds cool and knowledgeable to say it but the statement is wrong.
