Fuel mileage 660 Rhino?

I have been a member on here for just a short while. Perhaps this question has been asked many times, but what kind of fuel mileage do you get with the 660 Rhino? Also the 450's, and 700's? Thanks.

It's not real good. you could figure 12 mpg for either the 450 or 660. and even less with cvt mods like weights and springs.
I don't know how much less but it's gotta be a loss in econemy.
it would be intresting to know what the chinese utvs with the full manual tranns get for mpg? other issues aside they could the best bang for the buck if you are going deep into the woods.

I never checked it but most say like Joe said, 10 to 12 mpg.

People tell me the machined sheave helps a lot, just like a overdrive does a car.

I've had both a 660 and the 700 and my average for street and offroad combined is 16mpg with both engines. I was surprised that the 700 didn't get better fuel milage. Oh, and yes I get less fuel milage under extreme throttle usage-- but my average at the local gas station (precise measurement of gas divided by the trip odometer) is 16mpg.

a guy was telling me that he had a 450 then got a 700 and the 450 got 2xs the mileage as the 700. i find that had to believe. but have wondered about it ever since. 80-100 miles out of a tank is what i get on a 660. he was saying he was getting 150+ out of a tank

Me and a buddy went for a ride with our wives, basicly on logging roads pretty mellow pace to keep the wives happy we went about 45 miles and filled up he had a 450 and I a 660 we used whithin 2 tenths of a gallon of fuel and went the same place and same speed.
I think the 450 was a little less fuel.
not enough to matter.

running hard with lots of wot. I get around 12-14mpg. riding at a mellow pace I have seen 17mpg. Its not that good because these little motors are stressed to the max trying to push this heavy machine imo.
