Anybody try to stretch out the mileage in a tank yet? I was filling up at around 100mi (when the gauge was showing I was low), but I always had about 1.5 Gal. left. I started going to about 110-120mi recently and it still seems like I could get some more out of it - if the rated capacity is right. I'm looking at some long rides and trying to plan fuel stops, what's the most anyones gotten out of a tank without running out of gas?

I agree, would be nice if the gas gauge was more accurate. I am getting the same kind of mileage described above. It is possible that the "r"setting on the odometer is accurate but when it hits quarter tank it is useless, what is all that about? That's when you need to know how many miles you have left. It just reads "lo"

the way i drive i can go about 120 miles and put in about 2.7 to 3 gallons of gas.it may go a little farther but if youve ever pushed a harley you dont take the chance of running out of gas.
