Just wondering how good everyones fuel economy is. I get 6.6 MPG or 35L/100kms and 120 km or 73 mile range. My sled is a 2001 Ski doo Grand Touring SE 800 Triple.

Uhg, only 73 miles??? Get some Fitch DropIns for you rtank. I gained 2 miles per gallon using the product and you never have to use fuel stabalizer with them in your tank. My 800 twin gets a solid 12 mpg.

i can fill my 95 xlt up with 35 litres(caluclates to 9.2 us gallons) and get about 100 miles... maybe a tad more.

i think that calculates to about 11 mpg...


6.6 is horrible, lol. I think hemi's get better than that ;-P

I average around 14-15mpg with my 600sdi, no where near the 20mpg as advertised but much better than a similiar carbed version. I have manage around 20mpg a few times but this was traveling with a large group at around 30mph. :huh:

I've seen as low as 9.59mpg and as high as 14.59mpg on my '05 Fusion 900. Averages somewhere around 12.59mpg (though the last 200 miles averaged in at 13.13mpg).

It really depends on the conditions that I'm driving in. In loose snow I'm around 7-10 mpg. If I'm on a nice hard packed trail or something of the like and I don't go to hard on the throttle I can get upwards of 15 mpg.(cdn)

I'm averaging 14 mpg with my 1997 Mach 1. Last year I would average about 9-10 mpg. Only thing I did different this year is add the Fitch Fuel Catalyst drop-ins in my tank. I am also running 89 octane instead of the required 91 that Doo calls for in my sled. I figure that the 10 cents a gallon I am saving more than pays for the FFC, plus I get better mileage.

I have never figured my milage but the guys I ride with one has a 600 HO and the other an 800 HO and I usually dont quite get twice the mileage but about 25-30% better. I usually fill up when they do and they hit E before me. On average if it takes them $20 in gas to top off I can fill up for $13-$15.

I can vouch for the single pipe triple.. My 98' formula 3 gets better mileage than the wife's 03' MXZ550f..... Depends on conditions of course, but she gets around 12mpg and I get 14-15mpg.

06 MXZ 500SS is amazing, trail ridden pushes close to the 20mpg mark. No kidding.

Same here Cory, '06 GSX 500SS gets close to 20 mpg (Cdn) I couldn't believe my eyes. Mixture of twisty trail riding and near flat out lake and rail trail. I get about 1/3 better mileage than pals MZX 500 and wifey's '06 550 fan. They put in $30 I put in $20 and I go 95 mph across the lake while they do 80.

I pushed the mach to it's limits yesterday, not by choice though, I planned on filling up at this particular gas station and it was closed!...... I thought it was odd that it would be closed at 7:30pm, but anyways, had to go on to the next. Ended up going 125.3 miles ( 188 km) on a tank, I put 41.5 litres in it...... CLOSE ONE! I was tempted to pull a Kramer and just keep going to see how far I could go.... but I was getting chilled and I still had an 1.5 hr drive home in the truck.. :unsure:
