Gas reserve "amber" light; does the intensity increase as you deplete the reserve?

I just got back from filling it up for the first time really looking at the numbers and got 41.5 mpg.  Which from reading what you are saying seems about average.  Good to know.

Nice report, @ScottMc! Thanks for chiming in!

I'd say 41.5 mpgUS is on the high side of average for a V11.  Although, 40-ish is not uncommon with a very steady throttle and no repetitive (rich cycle) restarts or cold temperatures.

Surefire formula for reducing your fuel economy? Ride like docc : go out looking for tight, twisty roads to row the gears, drive hard out of the corners, blip the throttle on the downshifts, storm the straights = 36.5.

At the current cost of premium fuel, that difference in fuel usage costs me $17.65US for 1,000 miles of riding.

:grin:     SOLD! :race:

(Of course, I also have to save up for tires and brakes . . . :blink: )
