one more comment , for myself when i have two bars showing , I look for gas and a break as I have gone at least 250 plus km by this time and quite frankly that's enough for a old git like me... 15 min break with fuel up and i am up for another 2 hours give or take. i never fear for gas this way.

In the area where I usually ride it is difficult to do more than 20-30 km without finding a gas station, so I have never worried much about the accuracy of the gauge. I guess Canadian and American friends are more sensitive to the issue.
However, it happened to me several times to do many kms with the fuel warning flashing and I never had problems refueling within the range shown on the dashboard. I infer that at least in the last part the indication is quite accurate.

We can probably agree we can manage our fuel just fine, but it seems pretty dumb the fuel gauges aren't at least reasonably accurate and not performing as I expect on every bike I've had.  It's something that needs fixing.

Was it fixed 2019-up?

In a word, no. It's just the same.

At last a diagram of something that has been explained countless times.  This should be pinned somewhere to help those in need of understanding.   :034: :034:
