Switch sleds with your dad for a ride. Then you will know if its riding style. It can make a difference. How is the performance of your machine? If its not running great that would also be an indication of a problem.

I'm sure you are going to find that the gas mileage on your dad's sled is going to drop drastically once you switch.

Riding style makes a huge difference.

Also, this might be a bit obvious but are there any leaks in the fuel system? You could be dripping gas at fittings and such. Its easy enough to fix and cheap too. Good luck.
