I fill up every 75-80 miles. I ride up at old-forge alot, and I can push it over that just a little.

The highest I've gone on my '99 ZR6EFI was 110 miles. She was very thirsty after that, but I learned to trust the trip and not the guage!!!

My ZR800 gets between 15-16mpg so 12 gallons X 15= 180 miles to run completely out. I have run to 150 miles on a tank and had some left.

My Yamaha 500 gets between 100 and 125 miles per tank. But I try to top off at every gas station I pass.

My wife and I have '96 550 AC Cougars and I installed the Hlotzman Multi-Range Vari-Flow systems on them and we consistently get 15 mpg. And they run great.

I have a '98 ZR 600 EFI limited and it seems I am always putting gas in the thing. I always catch grief from the buds that my cat always drives itself to the gas pumps. I haven't done any work to the sled to try to change it, just learned to deal with it! If anyone has any suggestions, that would be great !
