Digital Fuel Gauge

So the fuel gauge has 4 bars. Simple enough. Does the last bar vanish? If so, how much of the tank is left at that point?

Good to know! Mine got to the point where at 1 bar I could hear the gas swashing around in the tank and then about 20 miles later I couldn't hear it so I got gas but mine didn't get to the point where it was blinking.

When it starts to blink you've reached your "reserve tank", wich has about 2 liters left of fuel.

I filled the fuel tank on my Rebel CMX500H today.

The fuel gauge had 1 bar showing and 129 miles since picking up the bike from the dealer.

It took 1.754 gallons of 10% ethanol gasoline, 87 octane.

If my calculations are correct I got 73.54 Miles Per Gallon. When I have the engine broke in to my satisfaction, and ride a little more aggressively, I would expect the MPG to drop somewhat. All of my other bikes average in the low 40 MPG with my riding style.

Ive found my first bar disappears rather quickly..maybe 20-30 miles and it's gone..and when the last one is blinking I have had .8-.9 gallons left. I've been resetting the trip to get a better idea of how much I have left as I thought I was almost empty a couple times and found I had almost a 1/3 of the tank left!

I got my bike with two bars on the fuel gauge. I rode it for about 70 miles and it dropped down to the 1 bar and started to blink. In California we have dumb rubber boots on our fuel bump so I had to hold that as I was filling up my bike. I spilled a bit of gas. *facepalm*. In the end though I filled it up with like 2.2 gallons when it got to the top, including the spilled gas. The tank itself is rated at 2.9 gallons. So I probably had like 40 - 50 miles to go before it ran empty. But.... that is a scary thought lol.

Yesterday was the first time my fuel gauge was low enough to start blinking. It started blinking somewhere around 140/145 miles on the trip odometer, and it was close to 160 before I stopped to fill it up... still only took 2.3 gallons to fill up. Averaged ~65mpg for this tank.
