How many miles on reserve??

Hi everyone,

I have a RR-5, and can get about 135 miles between filling with petrol. I fill when I see the reserve light come on. But, how far could I get once the light comes on? how much fuel is left in the tank at this point?


thanks

Steve

Re: How many miles on reserve??

I wouldn't have a clue how much the reserve would be - best bet would be to find how many litres the tank can take, then you can work out how many litres you have to add to bring it up to full.

Bit of maths later, you can work out how many miles you could get with the left over fuel in the tank.

My 954RR gives me 130miles to the tank (thats when I couldnt find a fuel station) but usually fill up at 110ish (depending on my right hand)

I can get about 145 on my 929 but the reserve is not to clever , around 28 miles give or take. I'd imagine your rr5 to be the same.
