How many miles on reserve

Could someone tell me how many miles I should be able to go on reserve on a 1979 Puch. I ran out of gas today flicked it over to reserve to get home (less then a mile) and only made it about halfway home.

Re: How many miles on reserve

it wont go far but it should go more than a mile

you probably have rust and dirt in the botton of your tank and it clogged up the reserve a bit

Re: How many miles on reserve

I agree. It should have gone further. Every one differs somewhat, but you shoulda got even more than 5 or 10 miles I'd sure think.
