How far on a tank full

I have just been asked to go on a 40km (25mile) trail ride, as I have never done this before in my Revolt, how far can I expect to get on a tank of fuel?

I get 17 to 25 depending on how heavy my foot is.

I strap a 1 gallon gas can to the front bumper, for long rides.

Re: How far on a tank full

In Race mode the desert race Riot got 10 mpg. That would be two thousand pounds of raw steel and muscle Ain't that right Ronny!

Re: How far on a tank full

i got 65 miles on a tank at the dunes..that was just cruising around
at 25 to 55 mph
so i think 50 per tank would be a good estimate

As you suspect, yes, something is wrong with yours. I figured I could get about 70-75 miles on a 6.5 gallon fuel cell when going race speeds (IE: pinned and never lift except to turn, and then pin it again). I had a stock motor with no fuel programmer or anything else.

There have been others that had issues with really bad fuel usage in theirs. I recall some posts on it. I suspect Mike at Red Rock Powersports might have helped them walk through diagnosing the problem. Maybe give him a call.

Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.......who's bringing the chips?

Check the connector and cable to the MAP sensor. It sits between the Throttle bodies. If it comes loose the computer will richen the mixture.
Idle should be bad too.

Dirty air filter?
