These bikes get 15-25 miles per gallon....depending on conditions.

Deep sand........wfo.........etc.

Ever get stuck so bad .....you have to lean the bike over several times in each direction ..to break the suction ???? This generally leaks fuel out ...also.

To me that sounds like a lot of fuel. Do you know how far you went? And is there any spooge comming out of the silencer? Also, what were the trail conditions like? Deep sand and/or high speeds will drain a tank a lot faster than anything else.

Last week I did a 40 mile loop and had "about" a half gallon left after the run. The trail was a mix of hard pack and deep sand. It took about 2½ hours to do the entire trail and that's with several breaks along the way.

I would like to go to Denton some time, but the trail that I was talking about is the Little O: http://www.midnr.com/publications/pdfs/forestslandwater/ORV/Maps-Trail/little_o_trail.pdf

It can be a very fast trail if you push it, or just a fun trail to have a good time on. The choice is yours.

I tend not to make it to the west side of the state since the travel time is the same to go to Tomahawk. Farthest west I go is Evart really.

'03 RM250-

If riding single-trak only, and "on the gas" = 15mpg.

If play riding (a mix of single-trak, two-track, gravel road, blacktop) = 20-25 mpg.
