You got guts! I would have thrown a gallon in the saddlebag about 20 miles after the light came on. At least you got close and it was downhill; on a heavy @$$ed cross bike 300 feet would feel more like 3000 feet if you had to push it up hill.
To be honest I'm kind of surprised that you didn't get a lot more miles out of your overfill. Maybe it's the city miles that ate up the gas. I got my personal best mpg yesterday driving up to Idaho. I averaged 75 with a couple of passes up to 85 and got 52.13 mpg on 87 octane (with 10% ethanol).
