Draining my tank

Recommended Posts

'Morning folks.

If my tank is 3.4 gals. and I'm getting 45mpg consistantly, how come I'm dead on the road with 100 mi on the odometer? Petcock kept on Res. Is there a way to get all the gas out?

Get off the bike, don't put down the kickstand, then lay the bike on its left side for a couple seconds. More than likely the remaining gas is still in the right side of the tank. That or your petcock is not working properly, assuming that you are using it correctly and it really is set on reserve, of course.

Yeah, that's kind of what I do, so I guess the center section of the tank keeps the fuel seperated. The petcock lever has a little arrow cast into it, so I think I'm using it correctly.
