Tested it this morning
Ok, I just arrived at work and I was running on "stupid" this morning. Here's the story...
Normally, my wife and I ride to work together because we work about one mile apart and we get to save a lot of gas that way. So, I pulled out of the garage to ride to work and my wife was driving because I know that I have to work late and she doesn't want to wait for me.
When I started my Wee I immediately noticed the fuel light was flashing and I thought, "I don't remember putting it away like that?" Anyway, I reasoned that here's my chance for a good test. Since I have a "chase vehicle" on hand for support and I know the distance to work, I took the chance. I rode 21 miles to work while the light was flashing and then filled up. I put 4.7 gallons in the tank and that was filling to just below the neck so I didn't splash fuel all over the place. That means, to me, that I still had about 1 gallon of fuel when I left home if I have been getting my normal 50 mpg. That's pretty good, if you ask me, and I was satisfied to know that when the light goes on, I still have about 50 miles or one gallon to find a fuel station.
Of course, this isn't very scientific but it's what I am going to be using as an estimate of fuel remaining when the flashy thing starts. Of course, my wife thought I was nuts to even try, but that's just me cause I'll try anything once.:biggrinjester:
