Fuel Capacity

The specs say that the fuel capacity for the Bullet 500 is 14.5 liters or 3.2 US gallons.  According to what've seen on the web, only 11 liters (2.9 US gallons) of that is usable fuel.  The other 3.5 liters are need to keep the fuel injection system submerged or some other such thing.  So if you calculate approximately 70 miles to the gallon you should have a range of 203 miles on a tank.  Let's call it 200 to be safe.

The idea is that if you see the fuel indicator light start to blink, you should be planning your route to the next fillup.  Taking into consideration that the lights are not very noticeable, I plan on keeping my eye on the odometer and hitting the gas station before the 200 mark just to be safe.
