I accidently tested my fuel reserve and found it sorely lacking! I was about 25 miles from fuel when my light went on. Knowing that I was getting about 46 mpg, I thought I was fine. Imagine my surprise when it quit 3 miles short of the station (and home.) Thanks to cell phone technology, my wife was soon there with gas (but now before a San Antonio cop on a Goldwing stopped and asked if I was "broke down"....I think he was actually disappointed that it was only a fuel shortage!) I put about 1/2 gal in and drove the three miles to the station. There I put in 5.08 gal before it surged out of the neck, my usual fill up clue. Surprised, I checked the book and found that it is supposed to have a 6 gal plus capacity! What gives? Oh, this is an '05, shouldn't make a difference though.
