Good info Big J but I see some typos there too. It has a 15" rear tire not 18".
Also, what do you think the top speed is?

Intelligence is not a Degree. Intelligence is to take what is obtained from learning and applying it to every day situations with common-sense. It just so happens common-sense is not taught in our schools.

That's about right.
10.5L is around 2.5 gallons.
With roughly a half gallong reserve, 2 gallons is certainly in the ballpark.
