Hi, I have a question on gas capacity. The gas tank capacity is 2.1 gallons. When 1 bar lights up the need gas icon also lights up. This is normally when I gas up. It commonly takes takes about 1.7 gallons and its full. That should mean I still had about .4 gallons left. At 94 mpg thats a good 20+ miles or so in the tank. I'm wondering if I can wait longer? Anybody test this out and run it till it dies? If no bars are lit will I still get 10 miles or more till its completely empty? I suppose if I really want to now I should strap a spare gas can in the milk crate and let it run out.
Bars might not be linear? The only way to be sure is the carry and extra can of fuel route. Or simply start looking for a gas station when the low level warning comes on.
That's right. The gauge is not linear. The first bar goes out at about 50 miles, the second at about 80 miles, and the rest at diminishing intervals until the warning light comes on with one bar remaining at about 135 miles. At that point I estimate there's enough fuel for about 30 miles, though I've never tested it. This is my experience with my '19 Primavera 150. YMMV
