    1 to 1 pulley mileage

    Three times I have been out with both of my 250s and three times they have taken the same gallons to fill. It appears the pulley kit and my other mods have had no affect on mileage.

    Will the gas mileage difference be a lot different with the 1.05 to 1?

    I'm currently running the 1.05-1 pulley. It's horrible on gas. Eats it up within 2 hrs. I'm thinking of switching back to the OEM pulley.

    Sometimes when you make more power the engine becomes more efficient and burns less at cruising speeds. At WOT it should burn more. What surprised me was the difference between the 08 and 07s. My buddy went out with both and the 08 was at 1/4 when the 07 was empty.

    You could probably get a little better mileage with a larger bypass or more bypass.
