When traveling across country on a 20141 RT I am lucky h to get 230 miles. I usually need to pee by then. I have had to push it when I misjudged the next gas station. There are still places in this country where the gas stops are few and far between. So I have learned to get it when I can. Wasting ten minutes is better than wasting half a day. If you ride your bike enough you get a feel for when it needs fuel. All I care is the gauge works consistently. I will learn the nuances.
