Why is it that when the low fuel warning appears, the odometer disappears? I'm sure that the warning kicks in when there is 50 miles left (just a guess), but then I cannot keep track of the miles after that. Is this a "feature" that Indian incorporated so the optional analog fuel gauge looks like a good idea? I hope I am just knuckle-headed and missed something. Thanks.

Ya gotta use the trip meter in conjunction. Typically thee is supposed to be 1 gallon left. However, I have found there was 1.5 left when my gas gauge says I am out of gas. I carry a small 1 gallon gas can when I am traveling and not sure where the next station is.

I'm pretty simple minded and slow on the uptake but I've always taken these signs as a clue that it's time to buy more gasoline.

I have been trying to find out just how far I can go on a tank. So I have been experimenting with my distance. I know that I can get 200 on a tank and I want to know. Several places I have ridden it gets to be a very long way to the next gas station. It used to be, from Van-Horn Tx to El Paso was like 163 miles between Gas stops. I have seen times where I am on a trip and look down, I got a 1/4 tank and think its time to start looking but then the tanks shows empty before I find a station. So I want to know, within few miles, how far I can get on a single tank.
