124 / 2.8g = 44.28 MPGFarthest I've gone is 124 miles on 2.8 gallons of gas. No way to gauge fuel level is frustrating so I try to fuel up at 100 miles.
44.28 MPG x 3.7 gals = 163 miles
When riding 50 - 60 MPH roads I may go on Reserve at 150 - 170 miles. So the reserve is 1 gallon so you should have another 44 miles to go. Round it down to 40 MPG on MAIN and when on Reserve I remember the mileage I switch and figure 10 miles per quart. Practice switching the Petcock from Main to Reserve. I can catch
mine before it flames out. The exhaust sounds different as it leans out before the pop. I just finished a ride to VA and anything over 3.7 gallons is on reserve. Depending on the lean angle or going uphill or downhill the main may run out one or two tenths earlier. I have not pushed a MC since the 1980's but I did forget to change the fuel selector twice on this ride over the weekend. I thought about in time to avert embaressment.
