If so, that makes the upper mid grade posted at 15.80 equal to $6.13, I hope that is not in litres! Can you enlighten me please? About how much are you spending on a tank of fuel for the KLR? Thanks for the insight!
Having some down time to work on the bike and get myself back in order (more on that later) helps - as long as I can find internet.

As for fuel prices... you are right. Most of the time we put in 90 octane which is $6.23/gallon (luckily not liters) and averaging fill-ups at every 150-200 miles, which my KLR gets about 50mpg, I spent $19-$25/tank. Double that if riding 300+ mile days. Peru is by far the most expensive. And coming from California, I thought prices were bad.
