Did my first rides other than just the neighborhood on my 2009 V-Star 1300 Tourer. This bike died the first time after about eight tenths of a mile the first time. Someone suggest bad gas since this had only like 1750 miles on it. Put in about 1 gallon of marine grade gas and after jumping get it started and nursed it back to home. I put in a new battery and air filter and about filled the tank with new gas and Lucas Fuel Treatment. Ran it for a few hours on and off the next few days. Finally took it around the neighborhood and put on about 20 miles. Took it out today and about an additional 25 miles later the fuel warning came on. Put in about 5 dollars in gas and was fine after that. My question is; Would the bad original gas running thru the engine cause the engine to run too rich and pumping more gas into the cylinders and increase gas consumption? Or is there other items to look at. I think about 50 to 60 miles on a tank is not a lot. Its not leaking either. I talked to a Gold-Wing Rider and he suggested not to worry right now but run good gas thru it for a couple of tanks and check the mileage then. But for the moment enjoy the bike and check the figures after a couple of full tank runs. Thanks!!
