Interesting. Mine has not done this, yet, and I'm on fairly steep inclines regularly. Will keep an eye on it, now, though.
By any chance Did you keep the key on when fueling.?With about 2200 miles on the bike and maybe 20 fill-ups I've only noticed what I indicate below, twice. I think! Not even sure of that.
Generally, fuel level readings are pretty accurate and consistent, if a little conservative...especially the backward counter when on reserve.
Yesterday, thought I topped off the tank before my trip, then about 20 minutes riding mostly 80 mph on the freeway noticed was down two bars from full on the fuel reading. Although I did get on the throttle a few times, it seemed too soon to be down by two bars. The other thing, when I noticed it, I was on a long incline. Last time I noticed this I thought maybe I didn't top it off...maybe this time too(?).
Topped off again after trip, full readings...normal.
Seems very infrequent thing, and maybe it's correct and just me.
Anyone else notice something like this very occasionally happening?
I don't trust the range calculation, either...on any motor vehicle for that matter. That's why I rely on my manual calculations so that I know roughly how many miles I can comfortably get on a tank and roughly when I need to start looking for a station. That's why I use Fuelly. :nerd:I don't seem to have this issue but I have developed a distrust for its range computation. At certain revs the fuel consumption is higher and lower. For example my tuning of the maps gives a consumption of 3.8L/100km at 5250 rpm and at 5500 rpm it is at 5.5L/100km. I know it's because the map is richer at 5500 but that difference in such a small margin changes the fuel range significantly. So when I am cruising I hold the rpm in an optimal position. The speed is hardly different between these rpm's but the consumption and computed range is recognisable.
Done.this is odd issue on hand. @se7en can you run a poll on this gauge malfunction. This might be as big as the base suspension bump stop
