02 GL1800 w/Auto Pilot
That might be why I get good fuel mileage,I’m not too easy on the throttle so If anyone were gonna get poor fuel image it would be me,both of the 1500s that I owned, a 94 and a 98, had the Tulsa Tall windshields....
those things are like holding up a sheet of Plywood in the wind.
I am not surprised. I ran 4 sets of Avon Tyres on my GL1500 with good performance, wear and mileage.....!!That might be why I get good fuel mileage,I’m not too easy on the throttle so If anyone were gonna get poor fuel image it would be me,
A side note,my Avon rear tire has 9000 miles and looks AWSOME
Hey, Just wondering if they was big gallons or LITTLE gallons? US or Imperial gallons?
the same size gallon that I have used since I was a baby in swadling clothes, all in USA gallons.Hey, Just wondering if they was big gallons or LITTLE gallons? US or Imperial gallons?
There is quite a difference
Growing up in Oregon, there was a time where they recalibrated all the mechanical pumps to liters, because they topped out at 99.9¢ per unit and they didn't want to change the pumps when gas went over $1 a gallon.the same size gallon that I have used since I was a baby in swadling clothes, all in USA gallons.
Also, I don't recall ever seeing a gasoline pump in the Lower 48 states that measured quantities in anything other than US Gallons, every pump has a sticker on it stating that fact.
Didn't you love those old bugs. Crazy ideas like gas heaters, air from the spare tire to pressurize the washer fluid. Loved to speed shift my automatic stick shift. Plus if someone asked what you had under the hood, you could say "the spare tire."The low fuel light Thermistor is in a small tube about 3/4" long. It has holes in the bottom of the tube. It is in there
so when the fuel sloshes, it does not cool off the thermistor.
Once the gas is below the tube, it drains out the holes in the bottom and the Thermistor warms up.
The gas in your tank is always moving. Its not an on off thing. This is why its dim at first.
When I replaced the Thermistor, I sort of destroyed the top of the tube. I used a plastic straw to keep the Thermistor
from touching ground and so it did not flicker.
I had a 1964 VW beetle that had a mechanical gauge. It was a cable that went from the tank which was in front of the
dash to the gauge. It always was moving.
