Most gas pumped into a stock GSA?

So today, trusting my fuel strip possibly more than I should, ran my GSA down to 14 miles to empty (and had a nice range of 343 miles) and pumped an astounding 9.272 gallons into my theoretically 8.7 gallon fuel tank. My filler is not modified, but I did pump in gas until it was in the visible metal filler section below the cap, but not near the overflow.

What is the most anybody has put in at a gas station, along with what year the bike is.

I think my plastic GSA tank is swelling a bit, as before when I did this it only took something around 9.15 gallons. Hopefully there are no Ducatiesk swelling fuel tank problems in my near future.

I put 9 in once.

I ran out today with 46 miles left in the tank according to the computer.

I guess I'll start using the trip meter.

You've got me beat! My '07 GSA once took 9.05 gallons with 7 miles of range remaining on the computer, and I had 435 miles on that tankful (commuting, where I always get the best mileage of ~ 49 mpg).

I got a little lost on a 2011 GSA (dealership demo) and misjudged the distance to Soccro NM. After going 30 miles with the range reading showing dashes it died.
By laying the pig on it's side. I was able to get the remaining fuel into the side of the tank with the fuel pump.
5 miles later it died again and I coasted into the station.
10.0 gallons

I rode about 20 miles after the "miles left" hit 0. Not sure how much went in that day. I consistently can put in around 8.7 gallons and I know there is a gallon left or more. The tank seems to hold 9.7 gallons.

I sputtered to a stop (dead fuel strip) not realizing I had hit 400 miles on that tank. 9.7 gal I think it took.

I reckon your gas stations all need their fuel pumps checked for accuracy, you seem to be paying for 10% more fuel than you are getting…
