    Have you seen the fuel capacity for the Pioneer. Its listed at 8.2 gal. Honda increased it .3 gal vs the Big Red. However they moved the reserve point down a bit.

    I wonder what the actual mileage will be. Find out soon enough I guess.

    I'm getting about 13mpg /1.6 hrs/gal the first bar had just started blinking and I put 5.9 gals in. But I've been riding <15mph (never really sees 3rd gear) and pulling trailers, logs working with it. Not sure what trail miles would be.

    Well yes both answers help, I envision long 4-5 day trips and was hoping to hear that I could get 100 miles on a tank which is what you both roughly said.

    I recommend carrying Rotopax 4 gallons, they fit behind the back seats even when in 4 seater configuration. I've been using them for years as a backup and 2 will double your Pioneer's range.

    Manly, those are interesting cans..... I'm planning on hauling gear for 3-4 days also..... I will be buying a bed extender do you think I will have room for those cans?......I really doubt I will have much trouble with 100 mile range most trails here in Maine cross the pavement a few times and gas stations are never THAT far away.

    Actually, i have a Koplin 4 gallon fuelpack.I just hoped that i wouldn't need it on most rides.

    Honestly, i tend to get better milage than most, so i'll wait and see before i pass judgement.

    I road in the mountains this weekend for 50 miles and I used 2/5th of a tank according to the fuel gage. fuel mileage will be dependent on your riding style and the terrain..

    Mandride, that's fairly good millage. Thanks for reporting.
    I was hoping for 100 or more miles on a decent trail ride.

    2 family outings so far. 15.4 hours and 25.6 miles, still 3/5 tank left. I let it idle for awhile to warm up too. Looks like 100 miles on a tank is probably about right.

    I am thinking if it is just longs trail ride and not lots of stopping starting with excessive hill climbs you would potentially get up to 130 or little more.

    If you are hard playing the whole time in steep hills and creeks and mud then I would wager on about 75 to 85 miles for a tank. I played on some pretty good hills and creeks.
