I got 27 to 29 last week end on my fresh Trike, but was haullin a hefty 75 pound tongue weight camper also,,, I think I got around 30 to 32 on the first tank or so. I have the extra tank and it is a little different figuring it out. The numbers keep changing,, I seem to get 135 to 140 on Full to Quit running before switching over to R, and pumping from the back to the front. I really don't know how much Full to Quit running is in quantity,,,, If I knew that I could get a better fill. Guess I will have to start getting gas when I hit Reserve on a few tanks to see...

Default Same as Bongobob

I get about the same as Bongobob. Anywhere from 23-27 mostly with 2 up. I have had a low of 21, guess that's when I am mostly pushing it on the hwy. Had a high of 35 when I rode at 35 mph on a scenic road for over an hour. Probably won't do that again. LOL!

Yea it seems like it,,, That is where the extra gas tank comes in handy....
Don't know for sure. I haven't had mine together long enough to get a proper feel for what it will do and get as far as MPG's. I do know it will "Cary the Mail, but wont Haul a Load" I seem to have a time keeping the RSV Trike under 70 + I like to cruse between 65, and 68 ( by GPS ) and even with the cruise set I catch myself adding a little with the left hand, and wind up some where around 75...
