Default Re: Fuel tank sizes?

There aren't many tanks available at 'bicycle part' prices.
I have a 2 liter tank, it measured out to 68 ounces. The bike gets really good mileage cruising along easy. I don't bother to fill it up. I put in about 1/2 to 3/4 of a tank and check the level before each ride.
It seems big enough since I only go 5 to maybe 12 miles on a ride.
A long, narrow tank would be ideal for long-range riders. 1 1/2 gallons would take me at least 160 miles, at half throttle (about 24mph).
My old carcass couldn't take the abuse. I'll keep the little one.
