Do You Gas Up On Or Off The Bike

p*ngo said: I'm pretty sure we've done this before but I thought I would ask the question again. Myself, for years I usually gas while sitting on the bike. However, this past year or so I've seen more then a few riders filling up their tanks and spill gas on themselves. I've never spilt gas on myself while sitting on the bike but decided that It was probably not the safest method to refuel so I now get off the bike and stand next to it while filling the tank. Just wondering what everyone else here does. cheers, scott

NYC_ZX10 said: I usually get gas while on the bike. I usually top off so with the bike upright, i'll get more room to top it off correctly.

Sh*wng2020 said: I actually do a little of both, but I would say I probably get off the bike more.

D*er Elk said: I stand next to the bike as I fill it up. Chris

bcm0018 said: I do both. If I plan on going out for a longer ride usually fill up on the bike so I can get more in the tank. Not actually sure how much of a difference it makes though :dontknow:

zx7rydr said: usually off the bike cause my debit card is in my backpack or back pocket and its just easier to get off the bike and mess with all that.

*lninja_10r said: Off. I don't want a full tank most of the time esp if i am in a wheelie mood. What is other in this situation... i can't think of any other way to put gas in the bike. In one way or another you are either on or off the bike... or am I really missing out on something???

1g-10r said: i actually do a little of both, but i would say i probably get off the bike more.:+1:

*rvins said: Off...No way am I spilling gas on me...Nor am I willing to scratch my tank...Nothing lost by getting off the bike...Good chance to stretch the legs out after a ride.

P*ckfu said: I am always in a hurry. Slide the credit card through and pump and pull off.

SkyD*rk said: I NEVER get off the bike to fill it. I'm right handed and naturally pull up to the pump with it on my right side. If I was off the bike in this case, it would be leaning away from the pump and very ackward to route the hose/nozzle into the tank easily without walking around it. I also like being able to hold the bike vertically to top off the tank and using my body to keep the hose from touching anything on the bike. I'm constantly watching as gas flows into the tank to prevent it from spilling over the top. As a side note, I try to be courteous at the pump and don't F-around while I'm there. Pull up, fill up, and pull away. I'm always in awe of the riders (and cages for that matter) who park their ride next to the pump and spend 10 mins screwing around trying to get 3 gallons of gas into their tank.

B*g Daddy said: neither, i fill on the fly................:mrgreen: BD

m*cdaddy3 said: I fill up while off the bike. Hey, :ot: that brings up a question..... Does anyone ever fill there tank passed the lower filler neck baffle? And how about that whining noise? None of my other bikes did that. I think the breather orifice is too small or something?

*rch Enemy said: Always on it, easier for me to top it off and see what is going on. I usually pull in so the pump is on my right, nice and close so I dont have to dismount, open my tank, slide my card, enter my pin, grab the nozzle and come in from the right so I can see the nozzle and the fuel level. It works for me, been doing it for years so good or bad, its automatic for me. It also allows me to rock the bike a bit and get a little more fuel in, twice or thrice. Some may think its dangerous or asking for trouble, but honestly, I've never had problem one and I see no reason to change... Just realized SkyDork wrote about the same thing... DOH... +1 SkyDork!!!

CP10R said: on the bike, but i am really careful not to overfill and spill on the tank or on my crotch.

k*nichd said: I fill up off the bike. I actually pull up so the pump is on my left, that way when I get off the bike is leaning towards me in case the ground isn't level and the Kawasaki Click happens (kickstand). With all the oil, antifreeze, etc. near the pump you loose your footing for a moment and you're going to entertain everyone at the gas station. Plus I can skretch my legs and look the bike over before I head out into the canyons.

*r10r said: I stand next to the bike as I fill it up. Chris :iamwithst

rkw*ki said: Off the bike.

nyr*p1 said: great topic.....i am right handed but always pull up on the left, i think its habit all my cars tanks are on the left. i always get off stand on the right (non kickstand side) and fill up..but all my friends stay sitting when they fill up (i am also the the only gear nazi) and i have filled it pass the bafle on accident not sure if it hurt anything or not o/t but does anyone else tank get really warm when it gets empty?

sm*lls23 said: on bike, the main reason is one time i stepped off the bike to fill and the hose rubbed my tank just a little and it took me 10min to get the black mark off. PLUS sitting on the bike I find to be easier.

r*pper said: always on the bike when i top off. just feels right.

b*dboyrr said: I usually stand next to my bike......as if I did not, the bike would take a nap on my leg.:lol:

m*dnessracing said: I get off the bike to make sure the hose dont touch the bike.

Yup, if I feel the need to stretch I'll pull up somewhere else out of the way and walk around for a few, maybe grab a small gatorade and a snack. nyrep1 I love filling up with 4 gallons of gas in the summer time, cools off the tank dramatically as well as my crotch.:badteeth:

L*cky10R said: Off the bike. If you're on the bike filling it, then the gas pump is like right at your face.

n*njafan2 said: I am always in a hurry. Slide the credit card through and pump and pull off. :iamwithst You sound like me

*RBAN LEGEND said: I get off the bike 100 percent of the time.

St*tic IP said: I don't do either, I use Full Service and have someone else do it. I figure I am already paying so much, why not pay a little more and have my tires checked, etc.

*rch Enemy said: I don't do either, I use Full Service and have someone else do it. I figure I am already paying so much, why not pay a little more and have my tires checked, etc. I don't trust anyone else (besides my friends) to touch my bike, I'ld sooner let them fondle my wife, JK....

p*ngo said: I don't do either, I use Full Service and have someone else do it. I figure I am already paying so much, why not pay a little more and have my tires checked, etc. aaahaa...see now we have an "other"...lol...actually i hope you're kidding...no way am i trusting someone else to fill my tank...but that brings up the question...i seem to remember some guys on here from New Jersey or something like that where you're not allowed to pump your own gas...if it wasn't New Jersey then i'm sorry to anyone from there for my bad memory..:mrgreen:

*lien10 said: About 98% of the time I gas up while sitting on the bike. I only get off the bike to fuel if I pull up to the pump with it on my leftside.

Dr*in Fade said: I gas up on the bike...faster and easier.

fr*ntsight said: On the bike with the bike upright and level. That way I can see down into the tank and stop at the lower baffle. Also I know I am full and can better estimate when I will need to fill up again. While on the bike I can keep the hose from touching my bike using my leg. It works for me and I've never poured fuel all over myself. I suppose if I did that, filling on the bike would get old and stinky! Funny we are talking about this I just filled up this afternoon and a Harley rider scoffed at me when he was standing alongside his bike filling up. Maybe he just doesn't understand that pit times count!:cool:

ch*mp91 said: With a custom painted tank I use my hand under the nozzle to catch any drips on the paint job. I will also shake the nozzle in the tank opening to avoid spillage.

t*mpe_ty said: usually i get off the bike to fill up. it's just quicker as far as getting my wallet out of my pocket and to clean the bugs off my visor...........:helmet:

S*bastian1000 said: Always on thus far. Can't see any reason to get off the bike.

Br*ndensDogs said: In Oregon there is only full service (or at least it used to be like that) and you can't pump your own. Weird, huh? Only time I ever did full service all the time was when I was a punk kid and always had them do full service on my 85 Honda "Aero"

p*ngo said: I found this on another forum: Gassing Up? Get OFF! By: James R. Davis The tank is running low so you pull into a service station next to a pump. Down goes the kickstand. The next few things you do could save your life. Turn off your motor If gasoline were to spill as you bring the nozzle to the tank or as a result of overflow or as you take the nozzle out of the tank, you risk setting it ablaze. You should be concerned not just about a hot engine or exhaust pipes, but also any electrical system. Take your helmet off If your helmet is on you cannot determine if a fire has started as easily as you can without it and, particularly if the helmet is attached to the bike with an audio system cord, you cannot evacuate the area quickly should a fire be detected. Get OFF your motorcycle For some reason this step seems to be ignored more often than any other. Maybe it 'looks' good. Maybe it's just too much work to get off when you're tired. Whatever, putting fuel into your tank while you're straddling the bike is dangerous! If there is a gasoline spill your crotch will get wet. Then what do you do? Take off both gloves then eliminate static by touching the filler cap with one hand and the pump hose with the other Fill the tank, but not to the top Gasoline expands as it warms up. Some gas tanks are not sealed units and if you fill them to the top they can easily leak. Some motorcycles have dual (side-by-side) tanks that are connected internally. There is a 'secret' you should know about filling these bikes - when putting gasoline into the higher tank WATCH the level in the lower one. Since you are on your side stand the bike is leaning and overflow from the higher tank will go to the lower one. Obviously, with this kind of system you cannot fill the highest tank without overfilling the lower one. This is one reason why owners of these bikes tend to sit on them when they fill up - to keep the bike vertical so they can load as much gasoline as possible. But it's obvious why you shouldn't do so (odds are good you will stop and put your side stand down before you have burned up enough gasoline to prevent leakage.) Do not smoke within 20 feet of a gas pump Keep your ignition switch in the OFF position any time your filler cap is off your tank. (Especially do not use your CB.) Earlier I asked what you would do if gasoline spilled onto your crotch. Actually, I should have asked what you would do if it spilled on any part of you or your clothes. This is so important I will offer my own suggestions at this point. DRENCH with water! THEN take that article of clothing OFF!! DO NOT WALK IF THERE IS GASOLINE ON YOUR CLOTHES!!! Static electricity can easily ignite gasoline fumes. Allow wet clothes to dry OUTSIDE. If you happen to be at home, DO NOT PUT THESE CLOTHES INTO A WASHER/DRYER!!!! If you can smell gasoline on them there is enough to ignite. If you swallow gasoline, drink MILK, not water!

f*tcalvin said: Ive done both but most the time i use my check card which is in my wallet which is in my back pocket. So if i got to get up to get my wallet then I mostly stand up and fill it up. I will kind of hold the bike the other way with my leg to get more fuel in it.

*rch Enemy said: It made me laugh, thats all...

gr*entourismo said: so according to that article, if i get gas on myself, i should strip down naked and walk home?

I don't trust that fuel cap to be leak proof. Metal on metal connection does not create a seal which would keep fuel from leaving the cap in a wheelie. So.....:fu2:

Metal on metal connection does not create a seal which would keep fuel from leaving the cap in a wheelie. So.....:fu2: Say what? There's a rubber gasket that seals the cap to the tank to prevent spillage. You can take the tank completely off the bike full of fuel, flip it over, and nothing will leak out. Don't take this the wrong way, but that's a :lame: explaination for not topping it off. Now, with the tank less than full the bike will wheelie easier due to the reduced weight and that's what I thought you meant originally. Not this reasoning :lol:

I had a 93 ZX7 that leaked so i guess that turned me off from topping it off. I'm sure it leaked due to its age and a busted gasket perhaps. Never really wanted to find out on the 10 ya know. Gasoline is not my favorite cologne.

I would never trust some gas station guy to check my motorcycle tires. I didn't think there were any full service stations left out there?

The vent system and all can become saturated with fuel and make its way to the charcoal can ... Just not needed. Not that big a deal but just my opinion... Plus it might not vent right ...

gl*ckt said: One thing thats aways perplexed me is;How full is full? Is that gas to the bottom of the filler neck? Where the restrictor plate is? Is that gas to mid-filler neck? Or is it gas to the bottom of the locking cap mechanism? I doubt the latter,seems it would flow over sitting in the hot condition and come seeping out of your cap. I have a 06 and the capacity is 4.5 gal. and I never seem to put more than 3.5 to 4.0 gal. in it at any good ride.Gas light flashing on inst. cluster,and 150 miles on the clock. So how far do you guys and gals fill-em?

*tto Man said: Usually off the bike, lets me walk around for a bit and stretch out.

N*ck.INF said: havent said this in a while but, yes this is a :repost: I stand next to the bike as I fill it up. Chris :+1::iamwithst i've been doing that since day one.
