I have a 2017 Roadmaster and when I filled the fuel tank last wk it shows I have 45 miles till its empty, so I road it about 60 miles now it shows 80 miles till empty whats the problem
Thxs for the ideasThe fuel level sender on my 2018 Springfield started to get erratic and was replaced under warranty. Your bike might be showing a similar tendency.
Another thought is that for a while there you were riding with a heavy throttle, such as a long ride up hill or at high speed into a headwind etc. The computer worked out the range according to that fuel consumption. Then the road flattened out or the wind dropped and consumption improved and the computer has different data to work with.
On the other hand, perhaps this is what happens when the price of crude goes into negative territory like it did two weeks ago. It's what we all hoped for.
Thx u but does it ever go back up to max mileage distance, another question I take it u have a roadmaster what is ur normal fuel rangeIf I have been doing a lot of in and around town riding, and then fill up and go for a long backroads ride, my fuel range will increase as I ride, for awhile, before it starts to go down again.
Thx youI have a 2020 Chieftain. It always resets (or has thus far - only have 1400mi so far) when I fill up......it reads 225 (or so...) till empty. What I dont like is when I have about 150-160 mi on the tank and it reads 45 mi till empty...it then just jumps to "low"fuel." I have not run it to empty yet to see just how long I can go... im getting about 37-38 mpg's. I have notice it fluctuate when I start it, it will read 90 mi to empty and as I ride it goes up (for example).
I manually reset the TRIP 1 screen on the Ridecommand to track average mileage. The total range that is displayed on the speedometer resets automatically when I fill up, and goes back up to max distance until empty as calcualted based on miles ridden/fuel used. I can go around 250-300 miles on a tank of fuel, depending on riding style.Thx u but does it ever go back up to max mileage distance, another question I take it u have a roadmaster what is ur normal fuel range
