                    Does this means anti-rust treatment will was away after some time OR the ugliness will. Will Moksha ever get its beauty of chrome shine.

                        there are a couple of methods and reserve to reserve is commonly used.
                        1. make sure the fuel level is above reserve, ride with the fuel knob in ON position.
                        2. as soon as it hits reserve reset the trip meter and yeah turn the knob to RESERVE .
                        3. then fill in a few liters of petrol in accurate figure say 1,2,3 etc instead of bucks, it makes calculations easier.
                        4. after filling up turn the knob back to ON and ride till it hits RESERVE.
                        5. now note the trip meter reading and divide it by no of liters filled.

I too didn't consider it for now just because you know in the rains, me still learning to handle bike and full gear, impatient attendants and even more impatient bikers behind, then getting wallet out and proper change is a pain.
                          exactly... even i fill in rupees instead of liters but as the petrol prices are changing every now and then its hard to remember the price during last fill. so liters method seemed more accurate. anyways if u fill by rupees then make sure you remember the price.

                            What a coincidence! Day-before-yesterday night, a cat slept on my uncovered Blue Bird's seat, again, to take refuge from the pouring rains of Chennai. From last night, my Blue Bird is well-covered with a bed-sheet. It appears that cats love to sleep on Thunderbird's curvy seat!
