a few comments to make-
WOT or near WOT for extended periods of time will destroy your gas mileage. if you ride like that (lots of lakes, powder, etc) expect mileage you can count on one hand. if you go easy on it on the trails you will get pretty good mileage. varaitations of +/- 8 mpg between riding styles would not be uncommin.
fan cooled sleds, generaly, do not get the best fuel economy. few reasons for this, first off the are jetted richer than their l/c counterparts to help cool off the engine. seccond, they make a lot less horsepower than comparable displacement l/c sleds, so if you've got a fan guy trying to keep up with l/c sleds, hes going to be on the gas a lot more.
