According to one internet source - and we all know how reliable the internet can be - my Vespa P200e has a 2.0 gallon fuel tank and a reserve of 0.55 gallon.

I suspect but am not absolutely positive that the reserve 0.55 gallon is part of the 2.0 gallon.

Is this correct? Thanks.

There's 3.78 litres to a US gallon, which would make it a 7.5 litre tank.....which is about right. the .55 litre reserve would be included in the 7.5 litre.

Doh, didn't convert the km to mile😂
Like you say I'd be happy with that from my 200...

107.6 miles, 1.778 gallons, 60.5mpg

And looking into the tank, it appeared that fuel level was close to where I should have needed to turn to reserve.

So I am wondering if my American style fuel valve control is mounted correctly and working.

Oh, that fuel is high test non-ethanol at about 60 cents per gallon more than regular with ethanol. Thus the price.
