Re: Oil and Fuel Consumption 11/2010 Blade - (for the record)
Hit reserve for the second time and decided to find out what the 3.5 litre reserve is good for. Stuck $5 of fuel in a can in the rear sack and headed out of town.
Got back to the servo with 3.5 L flashing on the display, 330 ks on the trip meter, and managed to squeeze 17.0 litres into the "18 litre" tank. (I could hear some fuel sloshing about before I filled it.)
So for the MotoGP trip next week, I can bank on 60+ ks from reserve.
The oil hasn't moved in 2,000ks.
I've got the oem seats (and mudguard for the Vic police).
Should be good.
