F Trip Challenge!!!

Recommended Posts

jeffkisthename

Alright, so I follow @maxhfz on YouTube, our fellow forum member, and he recently posted a video about how far the F Trip can go and he went about 27.8 miles in F Trip. Now, before he posted that video, the furthest I've ever gone was 26.3 miles in F Trip. Last night I beat that going 29.2 miles in F Trip.
 
I challenge you to go the distance and see how far you can go!!! Here are the rules:
 
1. If you run out of gas, you fail.
2. When you post your F trip mileage, you have to also post your actual Trip Mileage, reason being is, you are even more brave if you have long mileage in both Regular Trip and F Trip.
3. It's okay to carry an emergency bottle of gas if you're afraid to walk your bike. Just know, that if you need that bottle, you've already failed to try again on another day.
 
Also you have to have proof for this challenge. What ever you have done in the past is moot. This is a challenge that starts today!!!
 
So here I'll start:

Let's have fun everyone!!!
 
Disclaimer: This challenge is only for the brave of heart and those willing to walk their bikes if they run out of gas... ?

My record on F trip is a whopping ten miles. I will be interested to see what people get but I am too much of a chicken to win this challenge :)

I know you're capable of becoming the Champion #1 spot Holder for years to come. Now all you have to do is provide proof ?.

So F trip means you have to run it to empty as soon as your fuel starts blinking?
Run it as far as you can go while the F Trip fuel warning comes on without running out of gas.

I've done over 70 miles but no proof, next time I'm running low looks like I'll be sweating it out again.

Just carry a small 20oz pop bottle of gas( soda pop for you Californians) when you do this challenge in case your luck wasn't good that day or is that against rules... I have done 20-23 miles on flashing F before...I do get about 145 miles avg before Reserve kicks in...

As long as you're cruising 50 on f trip is nothing. Stop and go is what gets you. I always get about 155 until f trip pops up on the dash but I don't fill up until 180-190 miles on average. Still usually only put in 3.3 gallons. When I did over 70 on f-trip I was getting really nervous and that was a huge fill up - over 3.5 gallons.  
Now that I get worse mileage with the ecu flash though, I'll probably run out - haha.

Sorry @motomeek...I had to try it since I had the opportunity. My bike started sputtering the moment I pulled up to the pump. The bike shut off just pulling up to Costco. I fired her back up and rode into the next pump. Whew!!!
 
F Trip: 39.8 Trip: 175.6

I hold my bike up straight while I fill up and top it off.

Good, I was going to say if you don't do this you'll never get that last .2 of a gallon in and lose precious f-trip miles. I fill mine until it's flush with the hole where the nozzle goes in the tank, a bit usually comes out the overflow tube, but meh. Hah

I've gone 42 miles on F, I was nervous as could be, praying not to run out while going 80ish mph on 95 south. No proof, but is nice to know you can take it that far.
 
Oh and I always fill the bike straight up, never on the side stand- gotta be able to get that last little bit in. haha
 
Good luck to those brave enough to take on this mighty challenge!!

Highway is the way to do this challenge. Cruising at like 65mph in 6th seems to net me the best gas mileage. Too bad I'm almost never on the highway.

@jeffkisthename - do you have the flash by 2WDW (or any fuel management for that matter)? I can't get anywhere near the f-trip mileage I used to get. Ran out of gas at 47 miles - luckily I was able to coast within 500 feet of a station then push it.
