I have a 1970 750 with a fibre glass tank. What is the capacity and how many miles before a fill up? (Or when you need to open the reserve valve).
There are two different shapes of Interstate steel tanks so different capacity ?According to "Technical Data" in the workshop manual - in order of capacity:
SS & Highrider 9 litres
Roadster (GRP) 10 litres
Roadster (steel) 11 litres
Fastback 15 litres
LR Fastback 18 litres
Interstate (GRP) 24 litres
Interstate (steel) 25 litres
I haven't stated gallons due to potential confusion (Imperial/US)
Can't find a mention of reserve.
You'd think so - but I can't find any reference to it.
Thanks - but there's nothing definitive there about different capacities of interstate steel tanks - which is what @HRD was asking in post #12
Re gas mileage - back in the day on my '71 750, I typically got fuel consumption in the mid/upper 30s (MPG). The claims of 50-some MPG just doesn't compute for me on an OEM dual carb Commando. Admittedly, I rode much more aggressively then than I do now but I still can't imagine how it's possible to get 50MPG on a stock Commando unless it's being ridden VERY conservatively.
