I've never gotten more than 15mpg (Imperial gallons) which would be a touch over 80 miles on a tank driving till she's pretty much empty on my H1.

Went for a ride with the wife on back for 42 miles, left it was full and only took 2.1 gallons to fill it when we got back. so about 20mpg going slow and not really mudding. By myself out riding hard I can get about 50-75 miles on a tank, maybe 10mpg

I think that all you guys are looking at it the wrong way.
The best way to calculate gas is by the hour.

There are way to many variables and riding conditions to make MPG accurate.
However MPHours is very accurate. If you start tracking your fuel consumption that way you will get close results all the time. (+or – 10%)
That’s the way we do it were I work. We have a fleet of 70 or so vehicles. Also tracking that way lets you know when you need maintenance. When your fuel consumption goes over 10% you need an oil change or something needs fixed. So it’s a good preventive maintenance tool.

I haven’t got the H1 dialed in yet but the TRV takes 2.5 quarts an hour.

I agree with red, two rides this week one 24 miles and one 8 miles and they both used about a gallon. 24 miles on hard pack fire roads, 8 miles in 4X4 low.
