Fuel Consumption 
Ed said 2010-04-05 20:12:54 
Hello there,
Im having a big issue with my 2006 xl 883 custom... Ive noticed that the mileage per tank is very low. I checked and the specifications say it is around 180-190 miles per tank.
Im only getting around 85 miles per tank. This has kept me up at night for quite some time.
Some people say it might me the carburator, others that im not filling up the tank all the way to the top. Others say it may be my riding habbits..
The truth is: I dont ride the bike very often (only 1500 miles in 4 years) and ive only taken it to the mechanic once for the first service...
Any thoughts? Ideas?
I talked to the HD guys and they said this: Bring it, ill have to fill the tank and use it and see hoy many miles i can get out of it (YEAH RIGHT, ill let you ride my bike for 100 miles)
Once again, what do you guys think?
Dont see any black smoke (carburator issues) dont see any gas leakage.
