I agree with Ed, I had the same, also it was confused when I put maximum to the edge.
The USA is awash with oil and we still use ethanol, go figure.Unfortunately we have little opportunity to get ethanol free gasoline in the United States. The ethanol causes issues with the fuel sender. I understand there are no fuel sender failures in Italy where gasoline is unadulterated.
I have this issue as well. Right after servicing. Makes you not too comfortable out on the road. I had mine happen after they installed new exhaust.Ok, I have searched through the forum and cant find this issue. I have to believe my brother and I are not the only ones that have this going on.....
Went to dealer to have a few warranty issues handled, specifically the mirrors. I think when we were there they may have flashed or updated the software or something along those lines but maybe not.
Anyway, immediately afterwards we are riding and BOTH supersports read that the tank is completely empty. WHOA. Pulled into a gas station immediately and weird....tanks have gas. So, we both filled up and took off. Problem solved, until about 2 miles down the road and the exact same thing happens again. But both tanks are full.
Called the dealer and they sounded like "oh...yeah, we have seen this before. You need a new something or other that registers the fuel level and reports to the ECU." Huh? I thought that was weird.
Now I dont see anyone else on this forum with the same issue so its really weird. Anybody here know what I am talking about or have similar problems?
This is correct! The USA gas contains alcohol. This makes the seals swell in the sending unit, thus making them inoperable! On my 2017 Monster 1200S, I have had to replace the sender 4 times under warranty! The last time I was out of warranty, but Ducati replaced it free of charge. Now fast forward to my new 2022 Streetfighter V2. It does not have a fuel gauge. I'm wondering if that is the solution that Ducati is making due to the USA poor gas? I suspect so, but wouldn't the real solution be for Ducati to get the part manufacturer to upgrade the seals that are alcohol friendly? BTW... Ducati is not the only bike manufacturer with this issue. BMW's have this problem as well...Unfortunately we have little opportunity to get ethanol free gasoline in the United States.
