I do a lot better than 7-8 on my 1998 ZR600 EFI. I generally get 11-12. I have really streached it on groomed trails and got 130+ miles before gassing up, with one gallon left in the tank. I never flogg it for any distance on the trails, except for the rail grades where it is general safer to do so. Then it'll drink a little more. My friend's '03 ZL6 SS does better in tight trails when we are traveling at a leasurely pace. He will take about 10 to 20% less gas. If we are cranking on the railtrails, and his exhaust valves are open, he will take the same amount of fuel as me.
