I'm getting about 70 to 75 to the gallon, but thats UK gallon. Theres no way my 500 would do anywhere near that. i think i could get 130 out of a tank before being worried when it would run out. My last tank had done 114 miles and had 1 bar on the fuel gauge for the last 20 odd miles!

Ahhh - I think I've found the problem - American Petrol seems to vary quite a lot. That explains why people were giving me such different figures (also their Gallons may be a funny size - you never know what archaic systems they use) - I've found a couple of European CMX mileage figures and they are getting around 3.1 L/100km - so the tank will do 360 - which is in line with Rebel Gypsies numbers (He is higher and colder than I am ) -
So I'll only need to carry a jerry for long trip away from the main roads - that's nice - luggage is always a problem.
Looks like I will be buying one then - time to decide on the paint scheme. I'm thinking Dark green with Gold pinstriping

Thank you all for the input
