KTM 530 with 14 liter there on the limit some made it some run out of fuel on the same stage.
I used my standard 690 tank (11.6L) and only on day 3 I was 500m short out of fuel. In the dunes the bike consumed more than 1L every 10km. Normally 17-18km/L.

Do not take the last possible fuel station but plan one in advance, some are out of fuel or non-existing.
FE570; CB500X; KLE500
