Range?

So I searched the threads and didn't really find alot on this. (and I do realize that this is subject to riding style) On average how far are the trail riders here comfortable going on a tank of fuel (regular or IMS tank) between fuel stops? I'm looking to take some longer trail rides this summer to mix it up...(trying to go north to south across UP MI and back)...but the last thing I want to do is run out of gas 10-30 miles away from anything. I am aware of the IMS tanks and PRM's prerunning rear tank. But what I am looking for is miles per tank/gallon estimates. Any help would be much appreciated....Dan

When I rode in Jackman Maine, did over 70 miles without a fill up and going an average of 45 mph. On our regular weekend trips we usually do about 45 miles + and when I fill up, it usually takes less then 2 gallons. Now when I did that 70 miles, had an extra 1.5 gas tank attach to my rear grab bar and used it on the way back.

The last long run I had was at 68 miles on wide open fire roads and we were pegged in 4th and 5th for good portions of the roads. Got back to my truck and checked my tank at the end and was about 1/2 left.

The wife and I have a loop that we do that is about 31 miles. It takes about a gallon of fuel to cover the distance. About half is sandwash (flatout 4th-5th) the other half rocky desert hills (technical 2nd-3rd).

So in case others of you are reading this with expectations, be careful as it varies a ton on your riding conditions. I was super confident that being my first ever ride on an atv that I would exceed what most on here get. Much to my chagrin at 36mi I ran out of gas on the first day I rode the beast. Day 2 at 38mi I had a little more left, but not enough to make 45mi even.
