FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE
10/15/20092500
 I have owned a harley davidson v-rod since 2009 and ever since i received the motorcycle the fuel gauge constantly over and under estimates the fuel in the tank. the first time it was ever truly an issue was when i was driving on the interstate and after 50 miles the gauge said empty. i had just filled up and typically get 210 miles out of a tank of gas. so i pushed ahead. at about 150 miles the bike actually ran out of gas. i chalked the lower gas mileage up to a bad tank of gas, but if my fuel gauge had worked properly there would have been no question. in general the gauge will say i am empty when there is still a gallon of gas left in the tank. i now try to avoid going over this in case i have another bad gas issue. when i addressed the issue with h-d it took two months for them to get the part in, and it didnt fix the issue. when readdressed they claimed that they found no issue and that they had fixed the problem.
