Without the canister, mine had it removed before I got it, filling to the brim results in gas pouring out a vent tube onto the ground if the bike is on its sidestand. Not pretty.

At least the bike will run fine afterwards, just don't like up for at least 50 miles

For some reason I get better gas mileage when riding in the mountains. No ethanol smell in the gas. BUT, you are right, Iím not always riding like I would on a track. See the road photos I have posted.

I guess we have the same as the US model , I say that because the Ducati bikes in Mexico come from Ducati US. And I don,t mean filling up till the top but I put as much gas as I can , basically puting the bike in the center stand in order to spread the gas and not allow air in the tank.

I Ride: 2013 White Strada
I got low 170's (US miles) on my hyper-mile trip. Think I added 3.6 and it wasn't stalling when I rode into the stall. I was very conservative and registered mid-50 mpg.

My normal driving is way nastier. I average mid to high 30's on the mpg gauge. Manual probably says 1 gallon is reserve/ unusable. I think 0.5 gallon is reliable but wouldn't push that.

My metrics are: Running from cops = 130 miles; Some hwy/ not late for work = 150; Numb ass trip = 170.

Could be higher elevation = less air = less fuel used.

It’s also the 3rd gear backroads we are riding where we aren’t pushing through a lot of air. Our average speed is 35 to 39 mph for the day.

If we rode boring roads fast, like freeways, then the mileage would be worse.

Not much ripping on these roads.

Lower speed is less air.

The capacity is 16.1 liters, making a calculation I should be ok to go as far as 300 kms or 187 miles.

By the way , the gas warning comes on at 200kms or 125 miles

What,s your experience ?

Any comment
Thinking that the tank is going to last up to 200 miles I was overconfidente .. Ran out of gas at 243 Kms or 151 miles. The problem: going way fast 100 to 120 miles per hour.
Now I know; the reserve last aprox 40 miles .

Well, that will certainly do it.

Where in Mexico can you ride that fast?
