No, really. When I had the XC for Baja, my first posting to Triumph--the first two didn't get published--talked about the turbulence. At 65 mph there's turbulence. At 75+...

I ran it to reserve only one time and I'd say its estimate was pretty close to what was left. Kind of hard for the computer to know what to guess when the mpg was going from 30 to 60 on the same tank.
