Fuel sender going senile
« on: 02 November, 2018, 06:16:42 PM »
Or maybe just partying too hard but had several days this week where it forgot where it was and displayed a completley empty tank at startup. Fixes itself in about 1/2 a mile. Battery fine and all other instruments are fine too. Clocks an hour fast though  :745:

Had the same myself Sean a few days back? Something in the air? Mine went quite a few miles before sorting itself

So it wasn't just the usual result, after a short failed start-up  :187:

Are the fuel gauges on these bikes really any good ?
Two weeks ago I was in the Wye Valley when the gauge was suddenly showing 15 miles to empty. I found a petrol station, filled up and it took 16 Litres.   :112:

Yeah but Tower Bridge to Blackfriars is probably worth quite a few of your miles in time on the road  :018:

Compared with the MKI versions, they are excellent. So you had less than a gallon left and it still showed 15 miles? I'd say that is pretty accurate (for a bike). The most I have ever got in my Tiger is 18.15ltrs, so I guess it errs on the side of caution, which is a good thing.

Not outstandingly accurate but it is consistent. I'm happy to let mine get to 0miles to empty as long as I know I'm withing 20 or 30 miles of a petrol station. Usually just fill up next time I pass a station after the light has come on.

Ah, that would be the well-known Panic Inducer module in the ECU doing its stuff. They like to keep you on your toes .....

I've gone over 200 miles - never had to put more than 18 litres in the tank ....
