I have that tank and was dissappointed this weekend when I ran out of gas! The pet cock valve is lower than the float. The hose from the valve loops up thus elimanating the gravity feed when the fuel drops below the float even when there is still fuel in the tank. From what I determined the tank is worthless when I get that low on fuel. Of course I got a lot of flack from my friends carrying such a large tank that I cant even make use of.

By the way, I bought the bike with that tank. I am looking for another to save weight since the extra fuel is worthless.

On average, how many miles can you expect to get on the stock tank?

I've read various amounts on this forum. Last saturday my odometer said 56 miles, used 1.6 gals (topped off at the gas station). I have the stock tank, 08 yz450, moderate pace.

Expect 20-25 mpg, depending.
