Tank volume...what's the most you've pumped in?
« on: May 11, 2013, 07:15:31 PM »
OK, the manual says that the tank holds 6.3 gallons.  Twice now I have ridden until the "miles remaining"
screen blanks out completely ( in both cases, it did so with "35 miles" remaining ); then, I've filled up,
but in neither instance did it take more than six gallons to do so.

It's fine that we have so many miles still to travel with that low fuel light on, but it does make me wonder --
has anyone actually put more than six gallons in the tank yet?

Sorry...I'm not sure what the total miles ridden on the bike were on the two occasions I cite above; I hadn't
taken the time to set that toggle.

My owners book says 6.6 gallons. 
The miles to empty display said I had about 46 miles to go before empty. At fill up, I put 5.6 gallons in. Which means I had about a gallon left, so, yes about 46 miles to empty. According to the average mpg the display shows, I am averaging about 48 to 50 mpg. All the numbers add up correctly and make sense. I didn't write anything down and get into heavy math, just a quick think through while filling the tank. Also, the book says the Low Fuel light comes on with about 1.9 gallons remaining. Thats a range of about 90 miles on low fuel. Not bad.

Most I ever put in was just a tad over 5.9 gallons

Is that US gallons? Not all gallons are the same. Here the specs all seem to say "6.9 US gallons".

My book under specifications, page 171, says 6.6 US gallons (25.0) liters. Mine is the Trophy SE. I thought i read early on somewhere, test rides or something that the non SE had a 6.9 gallon tank. I just googled Trophy SE specs and returned with 6.9 gallons.  My shiny new binder bound Trophy Service Manual says, 26 liters, all markets except US and Canada. 25 liters US and Canadian markets.

The only two"gallons" I am aware of is the US and the Imperial.  The Imperial equals 1.2 US (roughly)

Yes, my manual says 6.9 US gallons. It also says when the low level warning light comes on there's still 1.9 US gallons remaining. Today I fueled up right when the warning light came on and she took 5.027 US gallons. Seems to add up perfectly in this instance...
