    I was using one bottle of isopropol per tank, and when I blew up the 500, the old man at Langs machine shop, asked first thing about running iso, I said yes, and he just smiled and walked away with my crank. Since then, I never run iso, unless Im positive of water in the fuel,and bought those "tampons". This year, after running out of oil, light came on, I stopped and bought some castrol on the trail,4.00, compared to amsoil 10.00,and ran that a bit. found the castrol on sale for 1.98, at advanced auto, and have been running that in all the sleds. 8.00 a gallon, compared to 28.00 for polaris blue. Doesnt seem to hurt my wallet as bad,lol

    Which bottle of iso. The 10 gal or the 20 gal. Most fuels already have 1-2% in the fuel blend.

    Fill your fuel and oil tanks, ride it and record how much it takes to fill both again. Sleds should be 40:1. I run about 38 or 39 because i like buyin oil.
    Tune your oil pump acordingly. plain and simple. I do it to all my sleds as soon as i get them. I trust knowone

    Dragon 700 uses 1 qt. per 100 mile or 10 gals how ever you want to look at it. My 600 pro X 2 is about the same. My 1999 700 SKS went 200 miles on 1 qt. I do not know why but, I never had engine problems.

    I got about the same with my XCR and at first, I thought was a bit too much. After hear from you all, Im guessing its normal. WL.

    mine runs about a quart to 14 gal of gas. for some reason that nobody can explain either is that my xlt gets better mileage than the other triples I ride with. We all have similar riding styles, jetting on 2 of them is the same but we'll go equal miles and I'll need 4.5 gals and he'll need 6. Annoys the crap out of my riding buds.

    My 700 RMK drinks a quart to a 100 miles. My XLT is less but it also uses less gas than the 700.
