Just bought myself a 2006 S3. What sort of milage to a full tank should I expect?

With dyno tuning using Tuneboy, I managed to get 52mpg on a trip out to Saint Louis and back. I maintained 80mph pretty much the whole way on the freeway. Not sure if the 1050 could get the same as I'm on a 955, but I'd bet if you leaned out some of the richness you'd notice a bump up in performance and fuel economy.

Doing a fork swap on my bike then later hopefully a supercharger in the fall or winter. Then we'll REALLY see what kind of economy a high HP/tq S3 can get! 120ft lbs, anyone?

The 1050 definitly does NOT get as good mileage as the previous years bikes. The absolute best I have gotten out of my bike is 39.7 MPG. I actualy calculated this, not using Triumphs very optimistic computer. I average about 36 MPG. So figureing the tank is 4.8 gallons you are looking at a range of 172 miles on average. This is with mostly commuting 80-85mph average, and few twisties each tank.

I didn't think the tank would hold that much? ??? I thought it was like a 3.95 gallon tank, or something close like that. I didn't think it was over 4 gallons. So what is the fuel capacity?

Last weekend my light came on at 200km. 20km later when I filled up it took 12l. Best I've gone is 325km and put 19l in to fill. I usually cruise at the ton on the freeway or at least shift at 80% of redline 50% of the time (wow, I sound like a statitician during election time).

I ran out of gas one time at 206 miles on the clock.

But now I run out much sooner, and I don't know why. My light comes on at 125miles now :(

First time the light came on at 100 mls, this time I had clocked 135 mls, but no light! Bottled it and filled up anyway, not sure how reliable it is :-\

My tune is a bit rich now and I get between 110-140 mpg before the light comes on. The light comes on after using 3.5 gallons though so I wonder what the average for that is? Oh, and don't let the guys from the UK worry you, their gallons are larger.

if i top my bike off at each fillup, i will go about 130 miles before the reserve light hits me in the eyes.
