So many variables on a UTV.

I have ran my xtz about 100 miles of trail on a tank with some playing around. The math on that is 12-13mpg. You should do better, a lot better.

2012 XTZ

yes it's a 1000 CC [like all of the 1000's a few less rounded up]

on long outings if your camping and such your load will reduce you fuel milage as well as the speed average you travel, when empty I see 120 usually miles a tank filled full to top of neck. on long cross country runs on mixed terrane pulling a trailer more in the 85-90 range per tank and in real tuff terrane steep rocky heavy rutted more like 75 miles again with trailer in tow.
with a group and splitting up the loads so every one is about the same it helps overall milage. as well as those with heavier springs get a bit more load.

the singles in the group usually get a slight bit better 10-20 miles better . some 30

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

My carbed 650 gets between 10 and 15, depending on what I'm doing with it. When on the trails and the gauge hits the 3rd bar from the bottom, I get nervous and start looking for a gas station or pop in my 5 gallon jug I carry if out in the boonies. Ain't ran out yet, don't want to test or trust the gauge.

I would think you could get 15-20mpg with a 500.
