Gas Mileage

Remeber these are big sleds.big tracks alot of roating mass. that still sounds like alot of gas though. my only idea would be that your jetting too rich...check the plugs wet black or black is to rich (white is to lean). I beleive you want a cardboard brown color on them. you may have to adjust the jets... careful though....to lean and your toast

hope it helps.....
