    i'm wondering, because next summer i plan on taking my 2-3 trikes with some friends to colorado for some mountain trail riding for a week, and i'd liek to knwo how much fuel we should pack. (hence the reason i spend the $ on my 200cc motor buildup for fueling and able to easly pull a small atv trailer)

    Crap.You cant even begin to guage it.
    My 310Z will drink a full tank around 3 gallons in about 30-40, 300 feet drag passes wide open.
    My ported R will drink almost a whole tank in about 16 miles of rough trails.

    The 70 and 90,crap.
    I will run both of them for a month before they need gas.Each one will get about 10 hours out of a tank.

    Who cares.Fill em up and ride.
    When in doubt,take more than you need.Some bum on the trail will always need some.LOL.
    Or start a toasty fire!
    Here is where my long useless list of stuff nobody cares about should go...

    my 86r with a 39 air striker can go about 25-30 miles on a tank on fast flat trails.my 85 350x will go about 48-55 miles on a full tank.my 83 300r is a gas sucker.Its power is at high rpms so you are in to it all day.most I get is 15-20 max.funny thing is that my strong running 87 trx250r gets less miles than the 86r does with a smaller carb.just like cars,they are all about how you drive them.I have been doing longer loops lately and unless I am on the 350x I carry 2.5 gallons in my 6 pack rack.

    I can ride all day in the sand with 3-4 gallons of gas(1986 tri-z 250cc).
    I don't ride too hard though.

    it totally depends on how you ride. I rode my 200x with a cobra on it hard 4-5 hours and burnt 1/4 of a tank! the 200x is probably the best sport bike for gas milage. you can run like a raped ape for ever and still have gas in the tank. My friends will last for 4 days! he does not ride hard but he rides it almost every day in winter.

    My 1984 ATC 125M will go FOREVER on a tank of gas. I have no idea of what the MPG is. I'm going to guess that its somewhere around 75mpg but I have no way of knowing. I have no odometer. I can tell you that it'll pretty easily get 8 fairly hard hours of use on a gallon of fuel. The last time I took it on a long ride I packed a 1 gallon gas can just in case. Rode for a full day. Had no use for the spare fuel. This was with a leaky carb too.... I'm fairly sure that it leaked more fuel on the ground than it burned. I recently ordered a $17 replacement carb off of Amazon and the machine is torn down in the garage at the moment. Once I get it all put together I'm sure the economy will only improve. TLDR? Fuel economy on the little 125cc or less machines is really really good.
