Re: Gas consumtion

It depends on what your driving on. Sand uses the most fuel.
Dirt roads at 35 to 45mph (55k/h to 72k/h), I get around 50 to 70 miles (80km to 112km)

I've been strapping a gas can on the front, to get a little more range.
I would like to make a bigger fuel cell. 8 gallons (30L)

Re: Gas consumtion

So my Revolt consumies a lot.
When i recieved the revolt the oil box was empty so i added oil as instructed. After starting the engine and tring it, there was white smoke coming from the exhaust so i checked the oil and it was full, i think there was some oil in the engine. I removed some oil until i reached above min.
The oil was mixed in the engine so we cleaned the inteak from oil. We had another problem with the temp. sensor that we fixed and now it runs great.
Do you think i need to reprogram it so the gas consumtion gets better?
Thanks,

Re: Gas consumtion

The oil dip stick isn't a very good setup. I put in 3 quarts of oil, after an oil/filter change. 2.5 quarts with just an oil change. 1Qt = .946L

I hate to admit it, but I've over filled my Revolt too.

I'm working on a kit to make oil changes a lot easier and cleaner. I tested it, a week ago, it works great!

Re: Gas consumtion

One thing you need to check is the MAP sensor that is located in the intake manifold. Make sure it is plugged in all the way. It is located in the manifold directly behind the seat. I noticed that I was consuming alot of fuel and had someone stop me in the dunes and tell me I was blowing heavy black smoke from the exhaust. It ran strong when I was in the throttle but hesitated at times from a dead stop. It would stall after idling down once in a while. When I looked at the wiring going to the plug it looked O.K. but found that it wasn't snapped in all the way. I snapped the harness plug in all the way and the smoke stopped and my fuel consumption returned to nomal. It is worth checking. Bearfoot had a similar experience with his machine and I had him check the MAP sensor and he found an issue with his plug too.

Re: Gas consumtion

Oh, I forgot about that. It did use a lot of gas until I pushed the connector in. You should hear or feel it "Click"
