Residual rangewithout onboard computer
The operating range indicates
what distance can still be driven
with the remaining fuel. It is only
displayed after the fuel reserve
is reached. This distance is cal-
culated on the basis of fuel level
and average consumption.
When refueling after running on
reserve, make sure that you top
up the tank to a level above re-
serve, as otherwise the sensor
will not be able to register the
new level. Otherwise neither the fill level nor the operating range
display can be updated.
The determined residual
range is an approximate
reading. BMW Motorrad there-
fore recommends that you do
not try to use the full remaining
range before refueling.
