Filled up with 91 octane as usual the other day, but the low fuel light won't turn off. I've rode twice since then, but the light stays on even though the tank is near full. The bike runs perfect with no hiccups or stalls or anything. Any thoughts?

Fuel sensor might have gone bad, remember getting it changed once with in warranty!

Thanks fellas. I'll check with my local dealer. Unfortunately, I bought it used. The warranty is no longer in effect.

Does the gauge read empty as well? If so probably the sensor. Common problem with ducati.

Ive been looking aroud for this same problem. There are a lot of complaints about this. I just bought and am going to try the “bottle of techron” trick before i pull the trigger on parts.

I did the fuel treatment then switched to only shell Sunaco and marathon bran stations. It's worked pretty well. Sometimes it still reads crazy but then comes back. Before I did the treatment it didn't work at all for several tanks of fuel.

Thanks for the info. My BMW X3 had a conniption fit on vacation. Thought it was going to strand us along the highway. Called BMW tech manager. First thing he asks is where I last fueled up. Turns out, I must have got bad gas. Now, I never use anything but 91 octane from Chevron or Shell. I suppose the xdiavel has the same temperament. I'll go that route and see what happens.
THanks

I can finally come back with 2 tanks of findings after the techron treatment.
tank one…. After treatment indicated normal after sitting a week with high concetrationl. I rode for 60 miles, topped off with exxon 93… worked well through the rest of the tank
tank two: refueled at 1/4 tank and has continued to indicate good most of the time. Occasionally i will get fluctuating indications, but the usually come back within 2 minutes.

I will continue to add some techron when the bike will sit for a few days to let the magic happen.

I just replaced the fuel sensor on my 2018 XDiavel. It seems they all go bad (some within a few hundred miles).
