Re: How many miles per tank?
I can't really speak for myself, because up until recently, I've only been putting a little gas in the tank at a time. My brother mixes his fuel at about 32:1 and gets around 25mpg or so. He's 190-200lbs and rides balls to the wall. I'm 225lbs and have a very similar riding style.
