It's a bit unnerving at first because, if you haven't 'corrected' your fuel gauge, it will be on E for quite a while before the light comes on. As for me? I'll get around to doing the fuel gauge mod one day but for now I just ignore it, and go based on my trip odo or fill up when the light comes on.
I can get near 60mpg keeping the speed down, average closer to 50 most of the time. That combined with a 5 gallon tank sure is nice. It's also nice on a long trip with a group, when everyone else stops for gas you've got time to walk around, drink a soda, and still be ready before they are because you won't need gas before the next stop! (Really nice when you have Harley Sportsters in the crowd, 2 gallon tank, gotta stop every 75-100 miles.)
