Hey,

Have you re fueled the tank yet? I'd be curious to know what fuel you have left. Assuming your reserve is set up for a half gallon (ish) reserve (which mine is) that works out to about 96 mpg . . . not knowing how you drive, or where, that's great milage, if you still have the halfish left.

I ride mostly dirt/rocks and average reserve at 72-76 miles.



Ride On, Bag

120 is great for the stock tank. That's 85 per gallon, the tank is 1.8G with only 0.4 of it being reserve, so 120 divided by 1.4



My best is 106 with the average being around 95 I guess.



Mine is decent, but it sucks compared to my old rebel 250. 1.9G before reserve, hit reserve at 160 worst and 180-190 best..add the numbers up and you'll find that kicks ass!

I have always wanted to run mine out of gas to see max out of a tank, but have never done it.



90-120 before reserve needed. Depends where and what riding conditions are.



Probably averages over 100 though.



I wish we had 0 ethonal here. Even though a lot of corn in the area goes to ethonal.

Correction: I have never run out of gas but twice it has taken just a smidgen over 1.8 gallons to fill it.

Try this website. They list a lot of gas stations in the US and Canada that sell Zero Ethanol.

Click on stations and select your state at the bottom.

I hit the reserve at 95 with 0 ethanol fuel almost every time. If I do a lot of trail riding at low speeds it drops to aroundthe 75-80. My 2010's manual says it has a 1.8 gallon tank with a .5 gallon reserve...
