Both myself and my wife have Renegades with the 600 HO SDI engines. I have an 04 and she has an 07 and we usually get 19 to 20 mph. Were always within a dollar of each other whatever speed
were driving. I did find the best range was the 50 to 60 mph.

I found on my sled that the carburetor flaps were out of time. They were not synchronized. The synchronizer shaft screw to hold one of the throttle flaps was loose. I tightened it and it ran so smooth. I never got around to checking out the mileage after that but will next winter. My plugs were also wet at the time.

I own a 99' Grand Touring SE 800 Triple and average about 150-170k per 40 litre tank, have got as much as 190k but not often, with out doing the math I would say I average 9-11mpg upto 12-13 at times just cruising.I think thats all you'll get out of a 650lbs sled.

I think I need a lighter sled! perhaps a 435 lbs one with an 800 in it!
