    Gas mileage On these!

    Well I did a controlled test of the vehicles capability. The trail I had driven on was not very smooth and a lot of dipps, holes water to deal with. Speeds around 40km/hr average I'd guess. Most areas I could not cruise above 50.
    I filled up at a Shell station to the brim and ran 100km round trip. Then today at home the trail is so much smoother with 16km to the Mobil gas station. Topped it right up, 13.79L

    I use an app in my phone and based on calculation from it and my 37L gas tank I have a range of 300km which is very very good in my opinion. I still travel with spare gas even though not needed knowing this. but I have to check a few more times.

    I have been trying to keep track with my X4 (using US figures). Now my figures are not as controlled as yours, but I have been getting any where from 13-16MPG. I am pretty hard on the machine, and have a few things done. If I can keep the throttle a little lighter, it will be better.

    If you have an Android Phone I can get you the name/info to get this app. Its a free one. I used to use a different one but had to rebuild my phone and it can't be found on Google Play anymore.

    I don't have an Android phone. I am keeping a note tab on my iphone with calculations for my machines. I noticed that I had only been tracking maintenance times and usage, but now am also tracking Ave MPH, and MPG. So what I do is everytime I fill-up, I record miles, hours, gallons. Then I calculate the rest long hand (AVE MPH, FUEL RANGE, MPG, etc). It is just my way...

    I haven't noticed any real change in fuel use with or without a sheave kit or after my Weller Flash. I am getting ready to change my Sheave Weights, so I am hoping that gives me a little better fuel economy. I just have to find some time to work on the darn thing.

    Ok, This one as did the old one run without permissions or data. As they should most are personal info grabbers stealing your info.

    I was doing as lot of weaving and varying of speed (if speed is even the right word) dodging holes and pools of water in depressions. Some were quite deep. A smoother trail where a half decent trail speed could be better maintained would have resulting in better MPG I am sure even if my average speed was 15-20km/hr faster.

    I have been trying to get this nailed as well, but my results were a bit different. I was on a hard packed FSR and ran around 50 - 60km/hr. It was a 180km loop and I was packing a cargo box at about 150lbs and a passenger at around 150lbs also. I had it filled to the neck to start and added 27L of fuel at the end. I thought it was a 30L tank, not 35. It makes more sense that it is 35L as the gauge wasn't flashing yet (I assume it does the same as my old Rhino when it gets low). I thought I was only good to 200km but now I think I had more to go. I never like to get too low, but one does need to know how far you can go when the go-juice isn't available! Thanks for your post!

    My manual Says 37L, more than you thought. Which is good. Bigger tank more range, not gas station on the trails nor on most main road they cross. I am alway more comfortable carrying spare gas on any recreational machine. Never hurts and the weight is nothing for the machine. You might even help a stranded rider on day. (out of gas) LOL

    Seems low even with a smaller gallon. I will check further after refilling each time to see it there is a consistant trend in MPG. My setup is mostly stock as detailed in the signature below. I was told the tires were an upgrade (27"), not sure but nothing else for sure. Speedo could be off a tad but last I had the GPS connected it was pretty close. I have to remount it somehow without the suction cup which falls off an any bump. The power plug in the Garmin Nuvi makes it unable to velcro the back to the dash as well. More thinking or more beer then thinking a solution will float to the surface eventually.
