    Yes I have to watch my speed every time I’m out on the bike as I’m hgv driver and company I work for the max is 3 points on licence . 155miles is best I got from tank full but well happy

    I’ve got that range before but I find it stressful worrying about running dry,so don’t push it.

    Had to judge it quite finely, as I don't get as much reserve with the Pingel tap over a stock one, it was late at night as well, just praying the next gas station was open!

    Whats a gas station? Is it the same as a gas works? Did you have to line up, or stand in a queue for your fuel?
