Default What kind of gas mileage are Gladiators getting?

I have a 2003 Gladiator with 500efi's. I have not run a full tank of fuel yet. I think it has 220 gallons. I am going to the 1000 islands poker run and am wondering if I will need to refuel. i think the total run is 214 miles.

Thanks,
Mat

1 mi/gal approximate. Yes, I would guess you'll need to refuel somewhere.

I think the run is only about 150 miles. Kingston to Prescott is only about 65 miles on the highway.

1 mile/gal would be pretty close at CRUISE SPEED. You are probably going to run alot harder than cruise on a Poker Run.

Im thinking closer to .75mpg

Just an educated guess though

Dave,
We are leaving Thursday. Boat leaves tonight. I guess we had better refuel. better safe than sorry. I heard last year all the boats had to refuel in one marina with only two pumps. It took my buddy almost 6 hours. I think they have changed it for this year.

We ran 135 miles wide open and had fuel to spare. What a blast!

What does an 525efi burn ? My bet is 50 gals an hour at 4000 rpm. That would be full tanks, 3 people, 70mph. Thats 4.4 hours cruise with 220 gals and no lunch.
