Question about 2005 Ducati Multistrada 1000 DS

1 Answer

Tank Distance Decided, before the trip to Italy, to see how far the multi will go on a full tank,( carrying spare fuel!) with all luggage on and with pillion. running on the motorway at a steady 70/75. well so far i have covered 160 miles before ending up back at home having run out of time, the light came on at 110 miles, flashing at 120 or so. I will be out again one evening this week to complete the test and will post the results. In theory, 200 to 250 should be attainable.

I did 155 on a tank Sunday, light came on at 125 and the gauge shows 1.6 gal left ( but don't trust it!!) I usually fill around the 150 mark and it takes about 14 litres. this assumes you've got a full tank which takes a bit of doing on a multi and if you get an air lock you can run out at 120 or less

My polo 1.4 se's fuel gauge has sat on 3 quarters for 3 days now, not normal with the amount of driving I do daily, what could be causing the problem? It changes a bit when on a slope though


Hi Josh:
I'd start by completely filling the fuel tank.
Since you know how far you usually can go on a full tank, when you have gone about alf that distance, the gauge should show about half a tank, and when you've gone just over 3/4 of that distance, the gauge should be starting to show on the low side.
At least, if you know that the gauge is not reading correctly, you won't run out of gas if you keep track of the distance and always fill the tank completely.
Hope this helps.

Fuel tank reserve capacity


Hi Kumud:
On my KLR 650 the reserve is 0.9 US gallons.
There's really not much point in worrying about "non usable" amount.
What I would recommend, especially if you're going to do any remote riding, is to strap a spare gallon (or 2) to your bike, then go for a ride. When you run out of gas, reset the trip meter to zero, turn on your reserve, and ride until you run out of gas again.
You will now know how far you can go on your reserve. That's the first important part.
Now put you spare gas into the tank and ride off to find a fuel station. Fill the tank, set the trip meter to zero, make sure the fuel selector is set to "ON", and go for a ride until you run out of gas again.
You will now know how far you can go on a full tank before you have to rely on the reserve.
If you use this system it won't matter what machine you have, and depending on your riding technique, the distances will vary.
Gotta love riding!
cheers.

How many gallons does the gas tank hold on a 1997 scout 162 boat


Hi James:
I tried to track this down without success.
If it were me and I really needed to know I would fill a spare outboard tank and put it in the boat and then go and play until the boat coughed and ran out of fuel.
-I'd then connect the engine to the spare tank and continue to play or go home depending on how far away I was.
- Once at a fueling station, I'd fill the tank, and record the amount of fuel needed.
- It can also be a good idea to check the actual amount of fuel consumed (determined by how many gallons to fill the tank) against hours running at different speeds, and also the gas gauge indication when on the step and at idle.
- My personal rule????? never trust the gas gauge, and always start with a full tank.

88 mustang fuel only works for the top half of the guage?


The most likely problem is the fuel level sending unit in the fuel tank. It is a rheostat that is hooked up to a float in the tank. When the tank is kept at 1/2 tank or less than the rheostat stays at that spot and makes a open in the circut. When the circut is open or the resistance is low the guage goes towards full. When she fills it up the float rises to a spot on the rheostat that is not warn yet and works. The fix is to replace the fuel level sending unit in the tank or use the trip odometer to log how far she has gone on a full tank.

What do I need to consider when buying Motorcycle Luggage for long trips?


There are two types of luggage - hard vs soft. Whatever you decided which of the two it is highly recommended to have a tank bag when you're touring. This tank bag is ideal for the things like camera, money, passport etc.

When i pump the primer to start it pumps air into the tank and not to carb


Sounds like the pickup line for the primer is not far enough into the tank. Most primer lines are only far enough in the tank to work if the fuel tank is completely full. The primer works like a suction, air is pushed into the tank and the expanding bulb draws fuel into itself. A longer primer line can be installed, and most saw or trimmer dealers will carry rolls of it. Let me know if you need anything else or if this helps, Daniel.

Hi. i have a 2007 dodge nitro. i was just wondering how far can u go when your low fuel light comes on?


Traditionally when the fuel light comes on you have about 1/16 of a tank left. Depending on weight in your car and weather your driving highway or in town and the speed you are driving as well as the quality of gas and how efficient your car run (MPG) on average just a few miles. I recommend you get some gas before that light comes on. Gauges are never perfect and it may leave you stranded sometime.

My BMW X1 shut off in the middle of the road eventhough it had a 1/4 tank of petrol left. BMW suggested I fill it up with petrol and it started again. I am left confused as to why that happened...


The fuel sender unit could be faulty. It says 1/4 tank even though it is almost empty. Carry a jerry can of gas in the back , and run it down to 1/4 or less to see if the problem repeats itself.
The gas guage and trip computer are only as accurate as the float in the tank.

I have a buick lesabre 2000 and my gas gauge is giving me a incorrect reading. Does this mean I need to get a fuel injector cleaner done?


No, the problem is with the fuel level sending unit in the gas tank. This is normally a substantial repair task. Fortunately, your sender is sold separate from the fuel pump and both are accessible from the trunk under the spare tire. The labor should only be a couple of hours. Please let me know if you have any questions.


  1. Relieve the fuel system pressure.
  2. Drain the fuel tank.

    Fig. The fuel pump service cover is located in the luggage compartment under the spare tire-Park Avenue shown; Bonneville and LeSabre similar

  3. Remove or disconnect the following:
    CAUTION When removing the fuel sender from the tank, the reservoir bucket is full of fuel. Use caution in containing the fuel.

    NOTE Note the direction the strainer is pointing.


    Negative battery cable Spare tire and jack Trunk lining Fuel sender access panel Sender and quick connect fittings from the sender Electrical connector from the sender and position harness and hoses aside
    Sender retaining ring Sender and take note of its position Fuel sender O-ring and discard it
