There is a second low fuel indicator
I found out Friday that if you start to hear a sound like a turbine spinning up you may be low on gas. I had noticed on my way back from a customer site that my low fuel light was on. It was bright out so it was hard to see, but it wasn't on when I left home that morning and I had not driven that many miles.
I was almost to the office so I figured I would just get gas on the way home. At lunch I thought nothing of it and went and got lunch. So on the way home as I am leaving the office I hear that weird sound, first time I hear it I think it came from the car that is beside me, as I am accelerating and merging in traffic.. I get about a mile from the office and realize I left my phone. So I turn around and go back. On the way to the office I start hearing this sound more and more and I realize this sound is coming from my bike.
I get to the office get off and check it over and see nothing I rev the engine and nothing. So I hope I can make it home, still not remembering I am low on gas. As soon as I take off the sound is back. I get about 1/2 mile from office and it's start sputtering and I know then what it is. It's the fuel pump sucking air.
It's really loud and a weird kind of sound. I wish this bike had a tripometer I could set at each fill up. On bright sunny days the light is hard to see. I stopped so it wouldn't run out completely and had my wife bring me a gallon of gas to get me to the gas station. That is the first time in a very long time that I let a vehicle run out of gas on me.
