Still a lot lower than it should be though.

FYI, when the tank gets to the start of the red on the gauge, theres still well over a gallon in the tank.

The red mark on your gauge indicates the reserve portion of the tank................Ask me how I know.

While I will admit the guage is far from accurate, but it's a general indication.

I've check my mileage several times and worst I've ever seen is 49 on my 2006 750. Maybe if I changed some things I could get it into the 30s.
