Norty, what sort of "fuel stabilizer" do you use? Brand? Can you describe what you feel are the benefits a little more thoroughly, and perhaps note its price, usage (e.g., how much per tank)?
I'm with the fellow member who basically doesn't trust motorcycle fuel gauges. I also reset the trip meter (or use the GPS device for gauging fuel consumption).
I have a BMW with a so-called "known issue" of a fuel strip sensor going south - it did, fairly recently, and I was stuck (and fortunately it was a warranty repair, because it's an expensive fix, and fortunately I was in the city and not out in the desert!).
Having been riding since gauges were not to be found on any bike, I guess I've never really progressed past "trust, but verify..!"
It's amazing how efficient the 800XC is. I just did a 350 mile trip leading a rider with a new Striple. They had only 60 miles when we started our run. The route included climbs of 6600', 7700', and 8300'. Starting from sea level. I rode in excess of 224 miles before filling up. Then again, I use a fuel stabilizer that burns the fuel completely, thus increasing power and range.
How much fuel capacity does the triple have? What is the "normal" mileage?
Gotta be skeptical. I always wondered why if many of these snake oils (and similar items, like fuel line magnets) are not oem items.
Just ordered some from Amazon. I am wondering, Norty, how you use it; do you put a few drops in the tank when you fill up (if so, how many), or do you mix it beforehand? Thanks! According to the reviews on Amazon, it is really good stuff....
