How hours will the Gas last?

I know the answer varies based on usage but in general (on Green/Blue rated trails ) , how many hours/Miles will a full tank of Gas last? I use my Rhino sparsely and I can’t seem to remember when I topped off last. There is gas in the tank as of now to last me couple more trail rides at the very least. It’s not a complaint just want some info.

Does yours have the little cut out window under the passenger seat so you can see the tank and tell how much gas you have left? I've rode about 6 hrs normal trailing on a full tank and still had a 1/4 tank left. Hope this helps.

I see the tank is almost 3/4 full at this time...
BTW, how many gallons does a stock tank hold?

I can usually get around 8 hrs out of my 700 trail riding/rock crawling.
Probably only wide open about 25% of the time though.

i have made it over 100 miles on a tank on my 700
the gas gadge sucks it will say your out of gas and you can still go a long ways
if you look below the pasanger seat there is a slot where you can see the gas tank
make sure all the gas is gone add 1 gal and use a sharpi and put a mark add 1 more gal and make a mark and so on till you have maked all 8 gals that the tank holds so when your out on the trail you can see just what you have

I got 134 miles Saturday. Tight woods/rockcrawling/mud. Never broke 27mph. I was worried about 10 miles from the trailer. I can't see any gas in the tank. I have a stock 07 660 SE with dynatek turning 26 inch Goodyear MTRs(suck).

It would seem that these bikes should get better mpgs. Nearly 8 gal of gas and only a 100 miles. Im no genius but thats a little better than 12mpg. My 03 Chevy 2500 w/ 6.0 liter does better than that.These things need a gas guzzler tax!
