I was not going to pay that much. The Shell price was .33 cents a gallon.
Sunoco 260 used a lot of that back then.
Yup, those were my 1969 Corvette 4 speed 411 gear ratio days and still have the car.

Fuel Filter? I have looked for one and I have found none except for the petcock? Where might I find one on my '09 R? Also not sure why you guys are getting so low gas mileage I avg 41 per gal and get 150+ miles per tank before hitting the reserve...

That’s a good idea.
I had a battery go dead one time and when it did, the trip-odometers reset. Didn’t remember that my tank was already low before the battery swap so I was cruising down the road when I looked down and saw I had traveled only 10 m8les on my full (I thought) tank. Moments later, the bike stalled, wouldn’t restart and I was thinking I had some serious engine issues. Then the realization set in and I remembered they were zero’d out. It happens!

Thanks everyone for the input. I suspected I was given faulty info, it didn't make sense but just wanted to make sure.
I am really good at resetting the trip meters, anything over 100 miles locally and it's time for a refill. On the open road, one has to be a little more careful. I would hate to walk more than 100 yds or so. lol. Unless I'm on the search for the elusive wapiti, that's a good excuse for a walk.
