I'm not blaming the gage, or the bike - it was all me. I'll wear the "I'm a dumb-ass" hat.
The problem with my commute is I'm never more than a mile or two from a gas station, so I never feel like it's an emergency to re-fuel. The other problem is on a 50 mpg bike, if I start flashing at (what is it, 2 liters?) I still have a round-trip left in it.
Running late in the AM, "aaack, I'll stop on the way home."
After a long day in the PM, "ugh... I just want to get home."
I discovered the bike pushes very easily in neutral. :mrgreen:
