Mileage after running out of gas
Ok, I blew it yesterday and ran out of gas. Thought I had enough to get there and did not come close.
I am looking for info on two different issues here regarding mileage:
First, I consistently get at least 200 miles, and up to 225 miles, from a tank of gas. This situation left me dry after about 190 miles. Could be 'cause I was haulin' ass so I can understand a variance in the mileage here. I also have a other than stock rear tire but it has been on for about 6k miles. I know there will be some variance for wear and understand that possibly causing the minor differences seen in mileage. Any other input out there?
Second, since this incident I have fueled up 4 times and only get 100-150 miles from a tank of gas. The first time I filled up after the running out I got 90 miles before the gauge started its blinking. About 120 on each tank after and I took it really easy on the last tank and I am at 140 miles with the light just starting to blink. This is a good bit off the mark as to what I had before.
Anyone had an issue or familiar with what might cause this problem and sudden dron in mileage. I have about 14K miles on the bike and road about 700 miles yesterday so I got a pretty good idea of things in my experience yesterday.
Just a heads up, I rode about 1000 miles the week before and got about 200 miles between fill ups and could have gone a few more miles but I usually don't push it on the highway. Odometer is reasonably accurate, within 3%. Nothing too serious there.
Any ideas or help would be good here. I think I will disconnect the battery for a while to see if that resets anything and makes it better. Thanks for the help.
