Gas tank never full.

When I fill up i use a plastic gas can. I sit on the bike to keep it upright. I fill to the top of the bar in the hole as the manual says to... but still.... gas gauge never reads "Full"... always one bar missing. Is a full fill-up even possible?:confused:

I usually fill up once my odo reaches 150+. Typically i'll put 2.1 to 2.3 gals in it and am averaging roughly 77mpg.
I noticed that if you stagger your refilling, put a little in, wait, put a little in, repeat, then you can achieve 6 bars for the first 15miles or so.
I typically use 87octane but on my next fill up i'll try 89 or 90 depending on the price.

Paying about 3.31$/gal here in texas.
