Question about 2003 Ducati ST4

1 Answer

Is it normal that an ST4 gets a hot fuel tank after a 30 km ride? I noticed this during a recent test drive with a 2002 model/6500 km mileage. I tried to keep the bike most of the time above 4K rpm, but did not exceed 7k rpm. I wanted to buy an ST4, but now I am not so sure any more... Thanks for any hint, bernd

I had one and they do get warm,but not hot.I went to a ST2.Main reason is the cost of servicing the 4s is way over the top.Maintainence is a big issue with them.Same with the Monster models.There is not a lot of difference in performance unless you really want to wring its neck around a track.They are both great to ride on the road.Hope this helps

Petrol per km


Note the odometer reading. Fill the tank completely. Drive for 500-2000 km, refilling the tank as necessary, and recording exactly how much fuel is required each time to refill. At the end of the test, refill the tank one last time - recording how much fuel it required - and note the odometer reading again.

Add up all the fuel used in the entire test, NOT including the first fillup but INCLUDING the last one. The result is the fuel consumed during this test.

Subtract your starting odometer reading from your ending odometer reading. The result is the exact number of km traveled during this test.

Divide the number of km by the number of liters (km/l) to get your average fuel efficiency.

Mine is HH SS 2002 model, i use to service it regular, but now i notice that while i ride bike only 2-3 km engine get very hot , pls help me to solve the problem


it probably needs service, including oil change and filter changes! if fuel, air, and oil filters are not serviced fuel mixture could be FAR too lean, and oil filter clog will cause catastrophic engine failure and overheat!

RAV4 1998 ECT PWR green sign is on at all times & high gas consumtion.What that means? What can be done to fix it?


IN THIS MODEL YOU HAVE THE OPTION TO CHANGE TRANSMISSION PERFORMANCE FROM
POWER TO NORMAL.

WHEN PRESSED ON (GREEN LIGHT ON ) THE SHIFT PATERN CHANGES , LATER SHIFT TO CHANGE TORQUE BAND , GREATER PERFORMANCE.

WHEN DEPRESSED THIS MODE CHANGES TO NORMAL SHIFTING PATERN ALLOWING YOU TO DRIVE YOURS VEHICLE IN A MORE ECONOMICAL. WAY.
SHIFTING CHANCES SOONER.. INTURN USING LESS ENERGY

THERE IS A TRADE OFF WITH HAVING GET UP AND GO OR TO SAVE MONEY ON FUEL
YOU HAVE A CHOICE.

TO TRUELY TEST GAS MILEAGE DRIVE VEHICLE ON FULL TANK ( RECORD THE AMOUNT OF FUEL YOU ADDED.) THEN RESET TRIP ODOMETER. OR WRITE DOWN KM/ML.
DO THIS FOR POWER MODE ( ONE FULL TANK)
DO THIS FOR NORMAL TRANSMODE(DEPRESSED)
REGULAR MAINTANCE IS KEY ( OIL CHANCE , TUNE UPS( SPARK PLUGS , EFI CLEANERS.AIR TRANS FLUSH.
FROM MY EXPERIENCE I ALWAYS BUY MY FUEL AT SAME STORE.
GOOD LUCK HOPE THIS HELPS

Driving normal, at 80 kms, car seems to studder a bit, (gas wise) engine light comes on. Stop car, re-start, everything fine, no engine light, at 60 kms, fine, get up to 80 km, engine light comes on and...


First try replacing air filter if not done recently $30, next consider bad fuel put in fuel from major oil company from station with many patrons.Then you need to look at fuel delivery system including fuel filter and furl pump. But first try the 2 things mentioned.

VW Polo Classic, fuel efficiency problem


Has the car been serviced recently?
If not I would suggest getting it done.Not sure if you have diesel or petrol, but oil can thicken causing more load on the motor and airfilters get blocked and can cause a rich fuel mixture.

If petrol you can take out the plugs to check if they are a light brown colour, if very dark or black you need to check and adjust carb/injection settings/filter.Need to know what engine it is really.

High fuel consumption


Check the following things: air filter, wheel alignment, and timing belt, all of them if not serviced on time can affect your fuel consumption. I do not think its the heat because I drive my car in Phoenix AZ with temperatures comparable to Dubai and I still get 500+ km/tank.

Good Luck,

CRV 2007 Fuel Mileage Indicator


It's probably like the old manual fuel gauge needle where it would take longer to get from 'F' to midway than from midway to 'E'. We all know that according to the gauge the last bit of gas goes faster. I think the digital readout is doing the same thing. I don't know why though.
