I have the 2007 Rhino 660. I have additional weight added from all the aftermarket parts I have added. The only performance mods I have are Uni air filter, ebay tip, and hunterworks tri-fire CDI. It all depends on the type of riding you are doing. I commonly get 90 - 110 miles depending on trail conditions. I'll take the average of those two numbers...100 miles per 8 gallon tank. That comes out to 12.5mpg on average. I ride with other Rhinos and some do a little better and some do a little worse. My mileage does not seem to have changed since I added the filter, exhaust tip, and CDI. I am headed out on a long ride this weekend. I will have myself, my wife, and the boy (13 yo) riding for about 80 miles round trip. I'll let you know how we did on fuel.

I did a family camping/riding trip to Petersville for the weekend. It rained all weekend but we had the Rhino and the 5th wheel so the weather didn't ruin the weekend.

hondacrusher93,

Well, I took that trip I was telling you about. I will post pictures and video in another thread after I post this to you. The trip we took was up to Petersville, Alaska. This ride follows an old miners route back into the mountains. It is a dirt road but high clearance 4x4 trucks and ATVs are needed to make it back to the end of the trail safely. The ride got cut short because of a deep creek crossing that I didn't feel like trying since I had the wife and son with me. This cut the ride short by a few miles. The total round trip mileage from our camp site to the end of the trail and back was 50 miles. I filled the Rhino tank up to the rim for the ride. Speeds during the ride ranged from 20 - 45mph on average but slowed to 5 - 10mph during the rougher spots. It was raining during the whole ride and we stopped several times to look at various scenic overlooks. The ride lasted for 3.5 hours. I kept a good eye on the fuel since I said I would post results for you. Not too much of the ride was flat. The trail is a series of steady climbs and downhills. Starting altitude was around 850ft mean sea level. The highest point of the ride was an altitude of around 2300ft mean sea level. All this was stated to give you an idea of conditions for mileage purposes. No mud holes or rock climbing happened on this ride. At mile 40 of the ride the fuel meter went to 3/4 on a downhill portion of the road. Shortly after this, the road leveled out. At mile 43, the fuel meter went back to fuel and stayed there until mile 47. At that point, the fuel meter went back to 3/4 and stayed there until I pulled in at the camp site. We did another ride later in the afternoon so I filled the Rhino back up to the rim. I estimated I put around 2 1/2 gallons of fuel in the tank. That put my mileage at an estimated 17 - 20mpg for this trip. That was about the best I have ever seen. Obviously, mileage will decrease with mud or rock crawling. Hope this helps. Look for pictures and video of the ride when I post it.
