BRP claims the 1330 will deliver 406km per tank at around 100kph.  Seemed optimistic but after putting my fuel ups on fuelly.com, I have a 3 year average of about 43.5 mpg which is ..................................... drum roll please if I went dry everytime and carried a gas can -- about 406 km per tank.  So there you have it!

I've hit 425 kms once in search of a gas station, ya I was sweating a bit!
Always comfortable hitting around the 400 mark but I do make a habit of topping off my tank with each fill...

To slightly increase your mileage and keep your engine from lugging, stay above 3,000 rpm in any gear. I have been experimenting and have found the engine doesn't labour above that rpm, runs smoother and runs quieter. I also found that going 100kph in 5th or 6th doesn't seem to make a difference in fuel consumption over a tank or two of gas. It goes against logic (sorta) but it just doesn't matter what highway gear I use going around 100kph, 5th or 6th. Try not to lug along in 6th gear in an 80 kph zone! It's not good for your engine's health (in my opinion). Any nay-sayers? How about opinions of your own?
