I know car is most fuel efficient at 55mph. It probably wont be too much different with a bike. I usually get 70-90 mi before light turns on with my 3.5 gal tank.

Thanks for the info. I fuel up close to 100 miles because of some strange, nagging, paranoid-like fear of running out. I read too many posts of some other's having fuel gauge problems. Mine seems to work but I don't have more thank 1K miles on it yet. Either way, I probably fuel up more often than I should...

I refuel before 120 miles. Ride mostly around town and do not get great gas mileage. I think my bike has a throttle issue, keeps wanting me to punch it all the time :)

Our bikes would probably conspire against us.... :rofl:

Actually I swing out your way from time to time. My company has a factory near Youngstown. Was out there last Feb and there was this weird white stuff all over the ground :D

usualy top up at about 120 miles. almost 1000 miles now. fuel economy is not good now, supose it will get worse when its run in, with 28 tooth belt, high flow air filter ect ect. my carbon footprint is getting bigger, i'm sure a tree hugger will plant one for me.:angeldev:

Based on my gauges I get about 25 miles on a 3.7 tank:) However if I ride at 55-60 mph on the backroads my tank will manufacture it's own gas and the gauge will start rising until I get at the 100 mi mark then it drops like a rock.
Of course I'm usually in the 75-80 mph range so I guess it's all my fault:)
