Any help,I'd appreciate it!Thanks
You didn't say which of the 3 common tanks sizes you got but that is in the ball park for new HT with middle size tank. With a big tank and leaned out carb you might get 40-45 miles. Then again you can also do what many do: lie. These are usually the same guys who claim 40-50mph speeds on stock engines.
