Fuel consumption Survey

Post by deaddog » Sat Nov 17, 2007 11:50 am

CB77 1961

I would like to hear from other riders about how much fuel they use before hitting reserve, and how far they can go on reserve. My spedo/tach is bad, which I will be replacing this weekend, so I do not have a record of miles before it goes to reserve or how many miles you can ride on reserve.

On my bike I usually refuel very soon after switching over to reserve and put about 2.25 gallons in. Not sure how many miles I had gone.

The best I've done with my '66 SuperHawk is 117 miles to reserve, and that's with the 26mm Amal carbs.
