Mine usually reads around 240+ when filled.The range is calculated in part by the fuel mileage over (roughly) the last 10 miles when you are going through the tank and when you fill the tank it only has the fuel mileage over those (roughly) last 10 miles to base the range on.
How do you see "- 12" miles? Mine goes to a "--" display after "1 mile remaining" blinks off.Same here, about 230 miles if not ridden aggressively.
Mine was out of fuel at -12 miles. So (at least in my case) coming towards the end of the range and steady conditions the remaining range indication was pretty accurate.
Mine also does not show negative but with the gps its easy to see how many miles further until it stops running. Not recommended for normal riding but in remote routes when you try to get to the next gas station you watch every additional mile.How do you see "- 12" miles? Mine goes to a "--" display after "1 mile remaining" blinks off.
Mine went 10 miles and was dry and 12 miles and was not dry but very closed to it. But I did not ride it to maximize mileage. The gas station was at the 12 mile spot, made it one way but not coming back ;-)Mine is 2014 but I'm pretty sure the instruments are the same. Over the years I have run it flat out od gas twice. Both times I knew there was no hope of getting to gas. I went into hyper-miles mode. After I got to the "--" it went 13 more miles the first time and 17 miles the next time.
My '17 DL650 will have a "positive attitude" after a fill-up through the first 60-70 mi/96-112km. Immediately after filling, it will show a range of 260-275 mi/416-442 km. for the first 60-70 mi, the bars show Full and the range drops less than the actual distance travelled, even gaining range, so that at 70 mi/96km it can be displaying 315mi/506km. Adding the actual distance travelled yields 385mi/620km for the full tank. As the fuel gets used and the bars disappear, the range gets more and more accurate again until the last bar is blinking or gone, and the range displayed is quite close to what it originally was at fill-up.I must ride like an old woman. Never less that 440k's on the 650 and I've managed a nominal 600k's a few times. (Nominal because I filled up before I got to that distance).
