Does anyone know of a person or dealer that can install an aux. fuel tank in my CSC GL1800 trike? I am planning a trip to Alaska and would like to a little more fuel reserve. Thanks.
Interesting-my 06Wing/2010Hannigan is getting 36 to 38mpg w/2 up highway riding in warm weather, non-ethanol gas.Thanks all, I will call today. My dealer said I should get 180 to 200 miles on a tank. Apparently he has never taking a trip on a Goldwing Trike. At 180 miles you better be setting at the pump or on the side of the road.
Don't worry about gas miles. Every one gets better gas milage until you ride with them:nojoke:How do you do the reset? I changed the filter in May 2011. I usually use Shell. That is what my credit card is. If I need to chang I will. If I dont tow a trailer and be very careful I will get about 31 MPG. The best I have ever got is 33.
:agree:I have ridden 25k trouble free miles on my .CSC and mileage normally runs 32to34 mpg. Have gotten as much as 41 following Warsaw and as little as 26mpg into a 30 mph crosswind at 75 and 80 mph in West Texas..Don't worry about gas miles. Every one gets better gas milage until you ride with them:nojoke:
Tanks have gone to $650 plus install:22yikes: no install charge on new kits..Been 2 maybe 3 years since I had tank installed. I think he charged me $600.00 or $650.00. Don't remember for sure. Glad I did it just for peace of mind. Mine is an '02 1800 with '06 csc conversion and I average between 33 and 37 mpg with 2 up. I am about 165lbs and the wife is about 120. Besides that we seem to haul a lot of junk all the time.

May 2011 filter change probably means an ECM reset is not required. Usually that reset really only affects the idle RPM anyway.
But, in case you want to do a reset sometime:
1.Start w/ cold engine,
2. Don't touch throttle, start the motor
3. Once fans start allow to run another 90 seconds or so, turn off.
Interesting point-wonder what the rear end gear ratio is in a CSC?I have spent a lot of time researching mpg with the csc kit. Every dealer and almost everything I have read on forums the CSC gets the worse mpg. I get 30 mpg around local and 34 mpg on the road at 65-75 mph but I only have 1,800 miles thus far. Normally 125-150 is plenty in most cases but I ride some organized rides that is close to 125 miles none stop. They stop for nothing, including weather.
Riding at self speed and time/range a factory tank will provide all you need I would think. Even when I am solo I stop between 150-180 miles anyway.
