Reserve confusion K13GT
Will the tank be empty when the gauge indicates it is?
My low fuel light comes on when it indicates there is less than 70 km remaining. I was assuming that this would be the "reserve" amount
I noticed that this is accelerated towards the bottom of the tank (i.e. It will say I have 80 km of fuel remaining when I leave in the morning, riding it unagresively, but during my 60 km commute I fill it when it indicates 30 km remaining even though I have only traveled 30 km, thus, I'm assuming I better fill it ASAP).
When I fill it only takes 20 liters but know it holds 30 liters. Is there a reserve after it indicates it's empty.
Other threads have suggested when it shows empty, it is empty but from my experience I should have about a 1/4 tank left at "empty" which should give me another 160 km.
If my gauge is faulty can it be recalibrated?
