    Distance and fuel economy thread

    Can you guys post up details of your fuel economy?

    I'm more and more impressed with the fuel economy of these fun toys

    ~85km
    19 liters of fuel.

    Vtech tuned running 8900 limiter.


    No complaints! This used to cost me at least 30 litres minimum for a similar trip. (In a bigger SC ski)

    Was that All Full RPM because I think you could go even farther at about 35-37 MPH? (Easy Cruising)

    I pushed it a couple weeks ago. I'll have to post the trip. It was good but my Yamaha friend who does have a bigger tank went threw half a tank for my whole. Next time out we will do a before and after filling to compare.

    I went out the saturday before. I used http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/ to record the approximate millage of my day of playing. So I did about 38 miles of playing and used 3.75 gallons.

    The RXT did about 8 gallons.

    I rode for 4 hours Saturday mostly 40mph, on occasion 50mph, non stop a couple of times sport mode, went through half a tank? I thought it was great... 4 gallons was pretty good am I calculating something wrong?

    I always check Engine hours at start of day (So Lunch is not figured?) and at 35-40 MPH usually go 3 hours before any Low fuel warning which still leaves you about 2 Gallons?

    My average day this summer costs me 6 Gallons or $22.
    The RXT-X was twice that with only a couple high speed runs of 20-30 Seconds.
