This past Sunday, we did about 130 miles in the Ocala Nat'l Forest on my '99. We topped off at about 25 miles and I needed about 0.96 gal. We rode another 80 miles before the next refill, and I expected to hit reserve, but I didn't. When I filled up, it took about 2.6 gal. A dude on a KTM 520 E/XC hit reserve at about 65 miles and ran out at 75. We had to turn the bike over on its side to get the gas at the bottom of the right side of his tank over to the left side petcock. That was enough gas to get us to the gas station. Good thing, because I was about to have to take off my tank so I could pour some gas from my tank to his. That would have been a PITA.
