TDM900 - Fuel Gauge & Tank Capacity


Official fuel tank capacity is 20 liters, but this is actually a little bit more : up to 21.50 liters may fit inside, assuming you don't stop when the fuel level reach the metal thingy. Gently move the bike sideways to push the air out of the tank, and fill it slowly.

The volumes indicated are those found on my TDM. There may be some differences between bikes as the fuel gauge is not a precision device.

About fuel consumption & cruising-range

With an average fuel consumption of about 5L/100Km (56.5 mpg Imp), 430Km may be expected on a full tank.

If you ride very smoothly and not too fast on a good strait road, fuel consumption may lower down to 4L/100Km (70.62 mpg Imp) and more than 500Km (310mi) may be expected : I was once able to ride 525Km on a full tank during a non-stop trip on a flat and almost strait road in Morocco, speed was 80 to 130km/h.

Fuel reserve is about 3L (3.5L according to the Owner's Manual), it allows around 60Km before getting into trouble.
