    Ok, Ok, I'll increase my bid!
    LOL!
    Seems like the sending units are problematic.

    I'm going to have to ask more than that! Yesterday I got 34 miles to the gallon but the light and fuel gauge we're still acting up but not as much as the days before. When the fuel light was blinking, the gauge would very slowly go down after many miles. As soon as the light went off the gauge would pop back up to the actual level and then again work its way down if the light came on again.

    To Mike and Duke, I put 4.75 gallons in from Garrett’s gas can and had no performance issues until it started sputtering and ran out of fuel. I don’t see how bad gas can drop you from 42mpg to 16mpg.

    Maybe some bad fuel???? You never know how good the fuel is nowadays.
    Fuel is pumped thru pipelines to distribution tank yards, where trucks load for what ever brand, adding additives for that brand. The fuel is basically the same, except for the additives.
    I've been told that gasolines and diesels are pumped thru the same supply pipeline.
    There's a lot of ways for fuel to get contaminated.
    Steve, did you happen to notice any performance differences?

    that is a weird thing to happen. it had to be stinking like fuel for anyone riding behind you. must have been some sort of intermittent sensor issue.

    Same conditions, even slower in a larger group. I’ve ridden that area many times and usually on one tank of fuel to get there and home. Ran out about the mid point today.
