Just riding normal, how many miles in mixed riding to you go between fill ups? Also, how many gallons are left when the last bar starts flashing?

I log all my fuel ups with Fuelly since I bought the bike new in November.

I've missed 2 fill ups, but mainly commuting to/from work daily and some (roughly 100km) highway trips.

You can check my logs here: XSR (Yamaha XSR900) | Fuelly

when the last bar starts to flash you have around half a gallon, I wouldn't want to push the reserve much beyond 25 miles otherwise your picking up rubbish from the bottom of the tank. I 'average' around 120 before the reserve tank warning comes on.

I use aCar, so like ozmoto, I can give exact stats. I've never missed a fill-up.

Average MPG: 44.3 (Min: 38, Max 50)
Avg $/Gal: 3.853 (Min 3.39, Max 4.39)
Gal per fuel up: 2.85
Mi per fuel up: 126.9
Average days btwn: 13

That's totally stock. No tune, tires, exhaust, etc, over the course of my almost 1 full year of ownership.

OK, so around 120. Half a tank when the bar flashes. That's good to know. I wish it had another half gallon so I could get 150.

Half a tank when the bar flashes.
Half a GALLON, not half a tank - big difference, unless you've got a teeny little Harley chopper tank!
