  • CA Tillers.....how many miles per tank?

    So I just picked up my bike last week and I dont know much about the tank size on it. All I know is that the fuel light comes on at 90 miles. Is this normal? How far can I ride after the light comes on? How big is the tank and typically how many miles do you get per tank? Is there a reserve tank/switch at all?

    Thanks for your help.

    sounds about right...my light comes on around 85miles...starts flashing around 100...once its flashing, you better be on your way to the gas station...you've got about 10 miles of fuel, then another 10 miles where it'll cut out unexpectedly

    no reserve switch, its all automatic (sorta...just don't worry about it)

    usuable tank size is about 3.5gallons...dunno what actual is.

    if you get 150miles to a tank...its a good day, i've been hitting 95miles to a tank lately :/

      Thanks, crash, I appreciate it. Looks like maybe I should put a bottle of gas in the huge trunk under the seat. I'm used to getting closer to 200 miles a tank and having another gallon in reserve on my old bike. oh well, the tiller is waaaay more fun.

        The tank bone dry will hold 4 gal and you will get around 100 miles out of that. so after 90 miles you should see a blinking light. once it goes solid you have about 10 miles to find gas.

            Did you rewire your low fuel light

            cause mine flashes when it gets low (1 gallon left) and goes solid when it gets to .7 gallon

            I usually get 100 before it is pretty much empty.
            Just the other day I ran out of gas, and it took 3.4682 gallons to fill up.

                  rule of thumb for me is to never go more than 100 miles without being close to a gas station. the farthest i've gone was 132 miles before filling up (light on solid). that was on a boring freeway doing 75-80 mph. my low fuel light starts blnking between 85-95 miles when ridden the way she's supposed to be (hard). funny thing is, i've never put more than 3.2 gallons in the tank. usually its just under 3 gallons.

                    Have you ever see your fuel pump? its huge I assure you the tank is 4 gal in ca and even though you ran out of gas there is still some left in the tank it is just too low to get into the fuel pump. When I was painting my tank I removed it and got rid of all the gas I then took my 5 gal jug and filled my tank I had just under 1 gal left.
