+1. Bike usually takes 4.5 gallons when the reserve light has been on for 10-15 miles...

I get the flashing reserve light at about 180 miles where it will typically take 4.4 gals or so. Reserve is worth another 50 miles or so where it will take 5.7-5.8 to the bottom of the filler neck. (I have run the bike dry to check.) Yamaha advertises 6.0 or 6.08 depending on which docs you read, but I can't get this in unless I burp the tank full above the filler neck which Yamaha says not to do - the consequences are minor for a 49-state bike (possibly fuel overflow to the ground), but more serious for a CA bike (raw fuel into the carbon canister).

I did it twice during my last trip. It just ran a bit hotter. When cruising at same speed my temperature varies between 73 - 77 celsius degrees. When running on low octane fuel it just does not get below 80 Celsius degrees.
I like to set my dash most of the time on the coolant temperature, so I could tell it definitely runs hotter.

You can go farther on some nice bourbon! And it more effective, on an ounce by ounce basis!

I don't think bourbon is as readily available there in GrahamD's Australia as it is here in the States... And I know those Aussies like their beer!

Me, I vastly prefer a good single malt scotch to either. That bourbon is just a tad too sweet for my palate. That said, if nothing else is available, bourbon will do!

reserve

Mine gives 80 Km on reserve and then it's huffing and puffing and pushing and begging

When I fill up, just after it hits reserve, I'm usually putting in about 4.5 US gallons.

Last night I reviewed all the notes regarding fuel consumption and I averaged 77,2 Km per U.S gallon of fuel. Not bad at all. However, my doubt is the full range with a full-filled gas tank. I am asking because I always refueled the bike when the reserve indicator started blinking but it would only take 3,8 or 4 U.S gallons max. and that happened at the 320 kilometers-mark from full.
I checked and our S10 have a 6,08 U.S gal tank, which means that I could get around 450 km from a full tank.
Why the reserve comes at 320 around Km??
How long can you drive with the reserve??
According to my maths, the reserve is of about 2 U.S gallons. Is that correct??

The longest I have ridden my bike with the reserve on is for about 40 Km. I havent tried to get more kms for not harming the fuel pump when going dry, but apparently I could get even more before that happens.

I see you are now talking about fuel quality. Well, I had to buy low octane fuel twice and it made the bike runs about 5 degrees hotter.

Thanks
You've probably got the ghist of reserve range limits by now but thought I chuck my pennethworth in . I have tested the range on my UK S10 to dry on a couple of occasions (both with separate reserve fuel). On long distance reasonable pace riding I got over 60miles on reserve to the 1st stutter, but on local commute traffic it was spot on 50miles and that resulted in an engine cut out. So I'd say if you ride with reasonable care you should make 50miles on reserve but if the road/conditions are arduous figure on less.
