Fuel range to empty
 
Following on from the fuel light thread (and the first-class fuel consumption that is the Cagiva Raptor under the dizzy blonde one), I just wanted to check in and see what people thought their range to empty is going to be.

There is a fuel stop in the current route plan (and no, you can't have a sneak preview - it's a surprise) after 90 miles, and we're starting at a fuel station as well. I'd like to hope that would be enough for even the most thirsty of you, as even my KTM will make it round in one tank despite people telling me it drinks fuel.

Do I need to rethink anything?

if you give yours a handfull about 110 if your lucky.
Whats the bulk of the route straights, twisties or twisty twisties?

I'd be looking for fuel around 120 miles, panicing at 140, syphoning at 150

Twisty tending to very twisty, only one decent straight. Some sections of excessive sheep though, so speeds will be variable up there.

From recce thread:
" Fuel: tell peeps & db that there is fuel @ Richmond ( on the right as we drop in ) & they can use part of their lunch stop to refuel & meet back at Co-op. That'll hold the front ends down! :wink: If they don't use this, they are on their own in the wilderness that lies west of Tan Hill! :smt072 "

I can get 157mile til the fuel light is on, with another 20 or so after that on my SV.

With some fairly spirited riding.

Are you asking what peoples maximum fuel range is, or asking if there's anybody that can't manage this?
