Anyone ever run a full tank empty and note your miles? I get real nervous around 70 miles on my 06 650i.

I got 73 miles out of my 750 once before she said byby. I was taking it real easy the last 20 because it was a long ways from the truck and no one had any extra gas. She said enough as I was load'n her. Probably would have gotten a bit more had I not hot-rodded the first half a tank.

I usualy get between 9 and 14 per gallon depending on the thumb...mostly 9...

Too funny! It seems like I get 20 miles per bar on the guage. At least thats how I keep track anyway.

In all honesty, I target 50-55 as the number I want to be close to camp, the truck, or someone with a flat pack. That's down there where mine starts loosing those last two bars in a blink of an eye. Then when it starts flashing...I'm panick'n. I know I got about another 3/4s of a gallon...but that's like..10 miles at best...

That's why I got those new 1-gal rotopacs. Insurance...LOL

A thursty Brute is not a good thing..

Wow, does the SRA have a bigger tank?

Ive got a little over 50 a couple times but have also killed a tank in just a little over 30, really depends on the day.

You will probably be in the 70s on an easy day more often then we will with the 750s. After 50-60 miles we carbed 750s are bit'n nails and think'n gas cans.

On a "Let-r-eat" day I can kill a tank in 45 miles easy.
