You’re good! 17.5 litres (4.62 gallons) into a nominally 4.5G tank? if my ‘15 CP is at just the right angle, I might be able squeeze in 4.125G

I love it when the noises are normal!
175 miles is usually easily attained on mine, but for some reason I have run out at 175 miles too. I only had to push a half mile.
OTG I suppose. Its nice to romp for 100+ miles on a Sportster...

Basically it was about to quit when I stopped by the bowser.
Never run anything dry before except my mower!

The short version of the test results:
- Ran dry at 160 miles
- Maximum real capacity of the 4.5G tank is about 4.0G
- YMMV

For the long version of test results, see post #97 of this thread at this link: http://xlforum.net/forums/showthread...ght=dry&page=5
I wonder if the fuel pump for efi takes up some of the space because my carby '06 has taken a little over 4.4 gals and I was on reserve nearing fumes. I've gotten 184 miles before hitting reserve as my best. Usually make it to 160-170 miles before I hit reserve. I've also had to hit reserve at 110 miles.

My ride to work since moving is right at 50 miles one way. I ran a full tank for two round trips just to check, I made it home, but it sputtered on takeoff the last 12 miles, 202~204 miles and just over 4 gallons to fill it when I went to the gas station. Still ran fine once going, unless I gave a hard twist.

The light comes on usually around 110 miles to 120 miles usually.
