Test rode a fury today, mistake. Now I really really want one. One major hesitation though... I currently have a Yamaha Warrior and it's only real flaw is a tiny gas tank. I can only go about 120 miles between fill ups. Out here in WA state gas stations can be 50-60 miles apart which means you basically have to stop at every gas station - total buzz kill. It looks like the fury will have the same draw back, one review I read put gas mileage at +/-40mph and total range about 137. To add insult to injury, the fury also suffers no fuel gauge (same as my warrior). I'm new to this forum so I appologize if this has been asked already, has anyone seen an enlarged tank for the fury or perhaps know someone who is very good at doing something like that?

Thanks.

I've been consistently getting 46 mpg on my Fury, which places me at about 140 miles when I fill up. I let the "low fuel" light come on and just ride until I'm right at 140 and I'm always good. Frankly, 140 miles is probably about 2 hours of straight riding. After about 2 hours I like to take a break anyway, so it works well for me. Plus, I don't really want to mess with the tank-to-from proportions.

The best i got out of mine was 137 and 134 when the light came on. That was very conservative riding though. But I average 115 give or take on most tanks.

131 miles and put 2.7 in so about 48.5 mpg.

Last 4 tanks with 87 *EDIT* octane got me 130 miles to the low fuel light and 2.7 gallons.

Last tank (today) with 93 *EDIT* Ultra got me 131 on 2.7 gallons.

Certainly no benefits to running the higher octane with respect to mileage. The bike runs fine on the 87 *EDIT* with no pinging.

Cleaner burn with less carbon build up with the higher octane? Can't answer that but I am doubtful.

Anybody think running higher octane is beneficial (other than for the gas stations)?

Been constantly getting 50+ every tank. Im at a high altitude though. Even after about 2700mi, the fuel consumption seems to stay even. You also have your fuel pump which holds a extra amount, not a whole lot though. to the tank its about 150-160mi on 91 octane.

WOW!?

:confused:I dont really see the big deal... if I get 130 vs 165, it's still a sweet ride! I'm not riding to make good time, I'm having a good time riding!:cool:

I've been putting 89 in since early May, and someone told me that I should use 93...
Not to be dramatic, but WOW!!! It's a brand new bike! Rides smoother and I have about 10 more mph I get out of each gear.

The lack of acceleration was my only complaint with this bike due to the inability to create a safe cushion when passing vehichles... but now i'm good to GO!

Am I the only one that looks forward to a stop after 100-120 miles?
:D No. I like to stop about then, too. I have been getting between 50-55 miles per gallon. I do try to stop at stations I know don't use over the minimum Ethanol (E10), but they are hard to find. That stuff lowers gas milage, hurts the engine and is more expensive to produce...but the GOVERNMENT (don't get me started :() says it is good for us...:eek:

Has anyone done a ride to empty? I'm curious to know exactlly how many miles you have when the light kicks on.
.66 gallons, so i would say 30 miles tops would be pushing it... i've never done it, but i'm told you dont want to run a fuel injected vehicle completely empty.
