Miles per tank (XTZ 1000)

Guy's,

How many miles are you getting per tank? Also, what octane are you using?

Thanks

I have seen over 120 miles many times , BUTT I ride extremely ruff trails normally .. I run ethanol free premium note hard to find these days .. so premium with low ethanol B5 max.

your milage will vary greatly with trail conditions and ride style , busting trail lower, same with shale rock , Sand , snow .. what I'm saying is conditions will make the milage vary greatly. Always over 100 to a tank though

a note here .... keep your air filter serviced well and it helps.
the XTZ air intake is not in a good spot so the filter gets dirty quick ... if dust riding it's not unusual to have to clean after each day's ride [as a guide to how dirty it gets] .. I have two spare filters all ready to go in zip lock plastic bags so I don't have to dink with that while on an outing .

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

At least you have a pre-filter! I to carry extra oil soaked filter elements when we ride, same deal a zip lock bag to keep them ready for use. FYI, XTZ 1000 pre-filter is behind the drivers seat.

Ain't that the truth! Still paying around 2 dollars a gallon and we are happy! Something wrong with this picture! LOL I can get about 150 per tank when cruising at a steady speed.
