Low Fuel Warning.
« on: August 23, 2014, 08:39:39 am »
I've done it again!  Run out of fuel that is.  I was at the top of a hill and a garage was at the bottom so no real drama, but.

In my defence there were two bars on the fuel gauge and 90 miles on the fuel to out read out.

I ran out with two bars and 67 miles on the readout last time.  I had decided to use my trip meter to use for refuelling but as the bike had been in for a service all my trips were reset.

I guess I have something my dealer should look at unless one of you fine chaps can enlighten me?

Later

For that to happen twice to you suggests that possibly the fuel gauging systems might need a bit of a tweak..... its not like you are a complete novice or anything!

I would certainly mention it to your dealership and have it registered just in case there is a warranty issue.

If you disconnect the battery the ECU fuel readings get confused. If that happens fill up with fuel as soon as possible and reset you trip and you wont have this problem.

Definitely sounds like your fuel gauge is not reading correctly,
so get it checked under warranty, but in the meantime,
there is also a "Fuel Gauge" of sorts built in to the Garmin Zumo 660,
that you might be able to use successfully until the proper gauge is sorted out  :028:

I think Malcolm gets the star prize.

In future each time I remove the battery I will fill up ASAP to reset everything! I'll also register it as an issue with my dealer.

I do reset the Garmin each fill up too, not this time though, doh!

Thanks guys appreciate the feedback.

I haven't seen this problem with mine, but I did notice recently that I was able to get it to read 0 miles left in the tank while I still had a single bar left on the left hand gauge. That was kind of interesting to me.

Bugger springs to mind! Have not had that problem and I have run it down to 12 miles mpg left on the read out! Maybe a trip to the dealer and a recalibration me thinks!  :007:

Until the gauge is tweaked, fill up the tank when you hit 250 miles and you won't have a problem.
My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.
