Anyone having real world figures please post here. Hopefully with the data, some consumption numbers can be revealed.
It would also be good if you can give an idea about the terrain traversed as well. Thank you.
My odometer just turned 100 miles. Surprisingly, I have exactly 10 hours on my Ace. I have averaged exactly 10 miles per hour. Just before I turned 100 miles my fuel gauge dropped from 2 bars to 1 bar. If the fuel gauge is accurate I have burned almost 5 gallons of gasoline, maybe a little less. That means that I am averaging about 20 mpg, maybe a bit more. I am pleased with a cruising range of 100 miles. I have a friend with a Ranger 800 and he gets 10 mpg.
I am still in the break in period so I am driving it like a grandpa, which I have been for 18 years. I am riding on tight woodland trails with lots of ravines so I seldom get over 20 mph.
Can anyone comment if the mileage gets better after the break in period.
That looks like what I am getting as well. I have 78 miles 12 hours and filled it up with about 4 gallons. I also am driving like a grandpa as I have been one for that long as well. But let the hour meter click over 25 and the break-in service get done, then we will likely see the mileage go down a bit and the average speed of 6.5 (really twisty trails most of the time) increase a little.
