    GPR oil consumption?

    For you guys with the GPR`s:
    How many tanks of fuel can you go thru before refilling oil tank?
    How many hours of run time per full oil tank?

    I`ve just noticed that my level has dropped a good inch just for using a 1/2 tank of fuel...normal?
    new 08 GPR...still in break-in mode...

    I put about half a tub after every 2 (sometimes 3) tanks of fuel just to be on the safe side and not getting the buzzer. 2 gas tanks is usually 4-5 hrs for me

    Pretty sure it is about a quart per 10 gallons of fuel.

    Andy, it's a variable oil pump, so the consumption is based on throttle position. if you are WOT alot, you will go through oil faster than if you are screwing around at 20mph. ratio is somthing like 200:1 at idle and 30:1 at WOT. best advice is to check it very time out

    I add about 16 oz each time i ride to the oil tank...I also add an extra 1 oz per gallon in fuel tank to compensate for extra fuel controller is adding.

    I just ran through a tank of fuel and only had it take a 1/2 quart after. I was very suprised my old 97 would eat lots of oil.

    I was beating it pretty good while riding too.

    Its an 07 GPR

    What i've noticed is I go through almost a gallon of oil for every 10 hours I put on the motor. Since it holds 1.5 gal, I would just add oil every 8-10 hours.
