What is the most fuel you have put in?

How much fuel have you been able to put into the tank? This weekend I put 4.86 US gallons in. I'm wondering if the tank shape and the side stand will let you add a full 5 gallons.

lonerockz,

On one tank I pushed my luck, and ran 220 miles. It took just under 4.8 gallons (U.S.) to fill 'er back up. I'm not comfortable pushing the milage on one tank quite that far. There are too many bad things that can happen if you run out of gas.

Never really topped up that super full.

One thing is sure, once all topped up, Just ride on and don't stop till you're sure the petrol level's below the cap. It would be a waste if that petrol overflowed through the overflow pipe.

+1 with MHansen105. Petrol pump now are most'ly eletrical. Air cavitation in the petrol pump could damage it and make the pump hot. It then could be a safety hazard.

I'm with the mileage from the V. Damm fuel efficient....
