Hey Guys,
I just got into work & noticed the second stage of my fuel warning is on..
Checked the tank - has been for a while.

Um, I'm near Wynyard Stn & wondering if anyone knows an easy way to get some fuel to the bike?

1. syphon some fuel off your fellow rider? lol
2. ride to the nearest servo after work and hope that you don't run out of fuel.
2.1 if you do, ring a mate up with a jerry can
2.1 if no one is free, call nrma lol

Hmm, the closest place I can think of is those LPG stations where taxis get their gas from. Theres usually the 1 ULP pump at those stations. Its on Foreaux Street at Surry Hills. Probaly a 5 min ride from where you are.

Taxi it to the nearest gas station and back! =)

Saves the hassles of calling your mate out and you won't run the risk of having to PUSH your bike to the gas station if you do decide to ride it to the servo.

Duck, power up, and roll to your destination - like Sonic the hedgehog.

I'm still laughing that you ran out of fuel, and have a secondary fuel light :lol:

Just ride as far as you can, push or walk the rest if needs be

isnt there a couple of Shell petrol stations just outside the CBD, like at Wollommollo or on Oxford st... They may be a bit far, but i guess a lil walking doesnt hurt! :P

There is a BP station on Parramatta road about 2 mins after Broadway.

A closer one is this cheap one off King Street near Erskinville station.

Depending on if you can meet somewhere where there is parking, I might be able to bring you some petrol later today depending what time you finish as I'm driving down to Glebe and might aswell get you $10 petrol on the way in a jerry can so you can fill it up to go to a petrol station.
