My guage reads full for the first 50-60 miles, then moves somewhat slow up until I hit 120 miles... then drops fast after that. I will never rely on the guage, I always reset the trip odometer when I fill the tank. I know I can get 135-140 miles out of the tank before I hit the reserve, then up to 150 miles safely on reserve with a little left to spare.

X2 to kenny and slim. Don`t trust the gauge. Reset the trip meter at every fill, and keep an eye on it.

Maybe my meter's broken, every time I reset my trip, it advances the entire dial by one number. It's like I can't just reset the trip..... : /
