Default New to Victory

Hey all, just picked up my new to me 2007 Vicotry Vegas 8-ball. I have been lurking around the forums but thought I would say hi.

One quick and easy question. How many miles do you get per tank? And when the lights starts to come on how many miles do I typically have?

Welcome to the Victory Forums.

A few helpful pointers,
  • Please take the time to read the “Sticky” threads in the “Victory Forums Rules and New Members Introductions” forum. This will help you out a LOT with the Victory Forums.

  • The Search feature is your friend! You will find the answers to a lot of your questions by using it. Like the 2 you asked!

  • If you are asking questions that are of a technical/mechanical/electrical/performance nature, please place them in the “Victory Tech and Performance” forum. This will speed up a response. Placing them in the model specific forum can delay a response.

Please add the year and model of your bike to your signature, so we know how to help when you ask a question!

congrats on your bike. I think most victory owners get about 45 mpg. The light comes on when you have 1 gallon left in your tank, so in most cases you have plenty of time to get to a station when the light comes on. Enjoy.

I fill up when I get 145 on the tankful and typically use 3.1 to 3.2 gallons to refill. My light doesn't come on typically until I have 150+. I use premium grade fuel and add about 1/2 ounce of acetone which helps keep the alcohol in suspension and breaks down the surface tension of the fuel to vaporize/burn better. I do this for all my vehicles 1 oz. per 10 gallons of gasoline.
