This could be all wrong, but it's how I look at it and it usually turns out pretty close. We are looking for about a 50-1 gas/ oil mixture mixture, right? That would be a quart for every 12 gallons. If your sled is getting somewhere around 10 miles to the gallon (keeping it easy to follow in your head), that would figure out to about 120 miles on 12 gallons. At that point, IF your sled is getting 10 miles to the gallon, your sled should take a quart of oil.  9 miles to a gallon would work out to a quart at 96 miles. Most of the oil pump calibrations I've checked are almost alway rich. Don't know of a good reason why they are doing this, and spending big money on research for the development of lower emissions at the same time. SEEMS LIKE THIS WOULD BE A GOOD PLACE TO START !

I have a 01 edge 600 . It uses about one quart in 140 miles.You should still be looking at about a 50to 1 ratio. This was running at 80 mph. most of the time. Wet snow means more drag, therefore more throttle and more oil. My 97 xcr 600se used one quart in 80 [email protected] mpg.

I have a 2002 pro x 600 and I use about a quart to every 125 miles and I think that is still too much oil the belly pan is pretty black from the gas and oil!
