Not really.
Its just the old style main/reserve system. When you hit reserve, you need gas.

Put your bike's year and size in your signature.
It helps others help you.

Yep, odometer IS the fuel guage. You hit 100 miles and then filler er up. I don't even hit reserve following this method.

The odometer won't let you down. You just have to remember to reset it every fill up. I get around 70mpg pretty consistently usually a little more so I start looking for a station at 140 miles and I should still have around a half a gallon of gas to get me there.

I am bad for remembering to reset it sometimes but after a couple of times going to get gas and you pop off the cap and it's still almost full you eventually learn. But with 4 bikes to keep track of it makes it hard sometimes.
