That light comes on at 1 gallon so I wouldn't really go more than a little over 20 miles unless you wanna take a chance chilling on the side of the road.

Was up in the mountains not paying attention not too long ago when it came one. I made it another 40 miles before getting gas. Was definitely getting worried though. I got about 140 miles on that tank, most ever.

when you get down to the last bar it will eventually start blinking as a friendly reminder that you are about to run out of gas..at first it stays lit like every other bar..but use enough gas and it starts to blink..

my average tank is good for 125-140 miles..i've gone 145 on a tank b4 tho

really? i get 150 miles on my tank, easy, and that is when the light just starts blinking. i don't even start looking until 150 miles. i've pushed it to 187.8 mi. i remember the exact distance because i was on the back roads of missouri and about 30 mi from a gas station when i saw the light come on. i thought i was going to be walking. but a lot of my riding is commuting, where i'll get anywhere from 42-46 mpg. i never push it when i'm out on the twisties, because i'm sure i'm not getting that mileage.

I made it 15 miles. But I have only seen the blinking line 2 times. First time it scared the S out of me. I didnt know it would do that. I thought I was hurting on just one bar, then it started blinking. Thats when I got really worried.

I usually get around 115 miles to a tank. But I also have a power commander, I dont think that helps. It sucks cause my commute to work is 55 miles. So I have to fill up on every trip to work.

Wow, I think you're bike is a little out of the norm. That's great miledge. Part of it is that my bike's regeared, but I still think the norm is 120-130 miles to a tank.

Actually, with the correct map for your bike you should probably get a little better miledge.

"Actually, with the correct map for your bike you should probably get a little better miledge."

Wouldnt it depend on how the PC is tuned? I know very little about tunning so I am not saying you are wrong, but I thought that it would be possible to sacrefice gas mileage for some increased performance ?

Keep this in mind guys. Everyones "Reserve" is a little different as the float is not calibrated exactly the same from bike to bike. Mine might come on at 1.2 gals left where someone elses comes on at 0.8 gals. And some people have complained that theirs never comes on. The light that is.

I usually go by the overall mileage when I see the reserve comes on and have about 0.7-1.2 gals left.

So what is the average MPG for these bike? 26ish?

Also how much fuel has been put into your tanks when it is on empty? I heard that some fill to the top while other just stop when the pump turns off with the nozzle all the way in, I would guess you would lose about .2-.5 gallons for that.

Should be more in the low to mid 30's mpg. Fill up to the sunken metal bar in the tank's neck. Most I've ever put in is around 3.8 gallons so you can ride for quite some time on the blinking bar.

I get about 150 before the blink also, most I've gone so far was 174 before filling up. I remember distance because I did it last week..lol. I think we get more because we commute, it also depends on how often I punch it or if I'm tucked, usually i fill up at the 150 mark but I'm going to slowly keep going further so I know for those JUST IN CASE emergencies. Weight should be a factor too, I only weigh 123lbs. If I push the bike I usually only get about 90mi or so and I'm blinking.
Also I'm pretty sure if anyone here has their bike mapped they should be getting better milage since our bikes come a little rich. I could tell my bike runs a little rich whenever I gun it.

I don't think weight is a factor at all. I think it is commuting and the low revs because I am 215 lbs and with all my gear and work stuff in the tank bag I probably double your weight. Just easy commuter riding keeps the mileage up. That and now that premium gas is $3.25/gal here in Hawaii, you bet I'm riding my bike!

ONLY 3.25?
Im getting pwnd by 3.57 in the cheaper Shell/Chevron stations here in the Bay.
Simple way to get an idea of your mileage...divide your miles you put on with
how many gallons you filled up between the last time you filled up.
So Topped off wit 0 miles, last bar no [email protected] 127, filled up 3.4 gallons for $12.
Math = 127/3.4 = 37 mpg
and with around 0.9 gallons left on my reserve means...about 33 miles after the light starts blinking
before I'm walking it, but I don't want to test my theory.
Pretty good for 15/45 520/V-stacks+BMC filter/yosh slip/pc3 custom mapped and a bald rear tire.
