Petethepup Posted March 14, 2007 Share Posted March 14, 2007 Now have 2k on 2006 RT. Book says gas tank holds 7.1 gallons, but after riding 40+ miles on reserve, the most I could get in it was 6 gallons, with a lot of shaking. So, yesterday it went on reserve at 251 miles indicated. I carried exactly 0.5 gallons & rode to dry. Ran out at 345.2 miles. Added the 0.5 gallons & rode 1/2 mile to gas station & with a lot of shaking, added 7.089 gallons. That means total capacity of 7.5-7.6 gallons and a reserve range of 90+ miles - for a safe range of 75 miles and a total safe range of 280-320 miles, depending on the pace. I will check to see if the range light can be adjusted. I doubt it's an easy fix, and now that I know the range, it doesn't bother me. Are we BMW folks anal, or what? Link to comment
