    Replaced the fuel strip and it worked forever after?

    Was just wondering...
    Is there anyone that has replaced the fuel strip and had no issues with it afterward?
    I can't help noticing that many have replaced the strip multiple times, and the strip failed
    over and over again. Even if it is free, is time consuming. Is it really worth it?

    I usually just reset my tripmeter and fill up at 200 miles

    The now-gone OK City BMW dealer replaced my OEM fuel-strip on a 2008 RT at 9K miles, and when I traded in 2015, it was still working fine with 52K on the ODO. But, as we all say: YMMV.

    Sure hope you are not the only one! Thank for the replay.

    My R1200R strip was replaced in 2011 and the replacement is still working.

    My 09 GS strip was replaced in 2010 and was still working last year when I sold it.

    Really? First I've heard of a redesign.
