I had the unfortunate experience of running out of fuel on the way to work this morning. Luckily it was within 100m of a petrol station and so was only a short push. Now it's kind of my fault as i forgot to switch off reserve last time i filled up and knew i would be getting low...
Last week i stranded on the motorway after driving 2,5 hours in very foggy weather. Of all the scenario's i thought of (but couldn't check without tools) this one was not considered: an empty fuel tank. :doh:
The tank was full when I left and after 150 miles dry. That should have been 300...
I'm off to france in a few days, can anyone tell me the fuel consumption, of GS at 80-90mph & how many miles from the light coming on do i get before i run out, I was going to run her till she stopped but couldn't risk it on the motorway.
Fuel Consumption on my '96 F650 Classic.
My 10,000 mile bike returns 56mpg average, and I am not sure if this is typical. Looked at the 'Chain Gang' site for some help, but the range of users and the mpg they get are confusing.
The bike is used locally on A/B roads. I am a non-agressive...

Hi All. I was lucky enough to by an 05 F650gs on May 2nd. The tank had been filled and trip reset. After seeing other posts on fuel usage, the bike hit 221 miles before reserve. I then filled to the brim at 226 miles, 12.18ltr = 84.35 miles/gal??? Is this normal or am I riding like an old fart?
I am mainly riding my 04 650GS for 'shortish' trips in town.
The fuel warning comes on at about 120miles. I tried to run it empty recently and it finally gave in in the middle of a roundabout with 178 on the counter.
Do you guys think this is consistent with urban-only riding or should I...
I am a bit concerned about the fuel consumption on my 2003 Dakar.
I have only had it for a few weeks and I use it mainly for a traffic filled commute, and hardly any over 30 mph areas. I rode 110 miles from full to warning light. Does this seem a little low, or is it to be expected with...
