    Modern pumps do the mixing at the pump.  I calculated the length of piping and hose and I came up with a litre at most...  not worth worrying about IMHO.

    Actually 1.26 Liters..... times 4 fill ups is 5.04 liters Equal to 1.33 US gallon or 1.10 Imp Gal :008:
    $$
    but i agree not worth worrying about unless your heritage is Scottish  :031: like me.

    As an update I'll say that since I posted this I have burned two and a half tanks of E30.
    This is around 475 miles.

    I haven't noticed any performance issues.  The bike runs fine; it pulls hard and sounds great!

    My average fuel economy city and mixed highway (55/65/90 mph) is right about where it has
    always been.  I am averaging 48 or so.   

    I'll update again when I destroy something.    Until then the experiment continues...
