    A few minutes ago Voni drove off in her little red car to the Little Burro store - a small market about 4 miles away. Just now I glanced out and saw a white car and a guy carrying a gas can out of my shop. Upon further looking I see Voni's car and I see her showing him where to put the now empty gas can. She ran into the guy at the store and brought him here to get enough gas to get to Study Butte/Terlingua. Another - local this time - miscalculated those 80 miles. In the 14 years we have lived here I have given away/ sold far more gas from gas cans than I have poured into our own vehicles.

    Mine is very reliable in that the light comes on at 45 miles remaining and when I fill it up there's a gallon left in the tank (put 5.5 gallons or so in a 6.6 gallon tank). This happens every time. I have grown to rely on it but if I was on a trip I wouldn't push it to that point every time. I tend to run it down when I'm just running around and commuting (before I started working from home full time back in March).

    As for the reset lag, mine doesn't reset until I start the bike and it almost always jumps to the normal 240+ mile range (it varies a little based on the last tank's average) in about 5 seconds. I have had a time or two where it took a lot longer to reset but I don't understand why. Regardless, even those times it never took more than 5-10 minutes.
