New owner of KRX. I went on 2nd ride since purchased yesterday. Topped tank off before ride & road about 18 miles of trails over 4 hours. When I loaded, the Fuel Gage had only 2 bars showing. Granted, I had in low gear most of ride, but do these machines get that bad of mileage? My old Can Am Commander fuel bar wouldn't have hardly moved on same ride.

Open your gas cap and have a look how much is in there. About as easy as it gets. Don't know why nobody ever does that. Guess it's just easier to go online than to figure things out. I must be old school.... :)

Get a dedicated fuel stick to check gas when it shows 1 bar. You will likely have 1/3 tank left. Yhey all have garbage gauges it seems..

Yes, my gas gauge isn’t near accurate, a problem I hope Kawasaki will address. After filling a couple of times, here are my observations. The tank stretches from under the passenger seat to under the driver seat ( makes me want to practice fast exits). It is shallow and wide. If you insert the gas nozzle into it like you would in a truck, it will not get full. Pull it out of the filler hole a bit and hold it while fueling. This shallow, wide tank will cause misreads when the vehicle is off camber. It can also cause starting problems when parked off camber. Also, when down to one bar, and that one bar starts blinking, you have 2 1/2 gallons left (According to the manual). Based on my last 85 mile ride, this is an on and off phenomena depending on your camber. 85 miles driven, blinking last bar as I pulled into a gas station, 6 1/2 gallons to fill up. Thus, around 3 gallons left. Come on Kawasaki, is this right? So my best guess is around 11 mpg, mostly in high gear, some low 4 w climbs in Mesquite NV.

Same issues as you all with fuel gauge dropping quickly on ride. Did 30 miles on first outing, gauge dropped to 2 bars and I burned 5 gallons of gas. That’s 6 miles to the gallon. This beast really only get 60 miles to a tank?

My fuel gauge is largely pointless. I can tell you I get between 10-13 mpg depending on the kind of riding I'm doing.
