The GS rider needs to learn how to fill the tank *all* the way. It takes
patience -- another 30 seconds or so at the pump. My "you've got xx miles
to empty" countdown doesn't start until about 170 miles on a tank of gas.
200 miles on the GS still leaves me with another 20 to 40 miles before empty.
That said, I like to stop every 100 miles or so just because it feels good
and I'm rarely in that much of a hurry.
