Curious about the Vikings fuel efficiency, Yamaha is claiming the Viking is 30% better than the Rhino economy wise, with the same engine. Can anyone attest to this?

ran 1st tank and it seems to get about 9-10 mpg. I need to fill from an accurate pump..all driving has been very easy. Hope it improves.

I have 450miles on my Viking now a few longer trips under my belt. Comparing fuel economy to the rhino on a woods road running consistent speeds the Viking is excellent. After a few 60mile trips I'm averaging 2.5 gallons of fuel. My fathers rhino doing the exact same trip averaged the exact same. The rhino is running 27" mudlight tires, dynatek ignition and a utv crap machined sheeve. When we put these mods on the rhino the fuel economy actually increased so if we were comparing stock rhino to stock Viking the Viking would win hands down. I can't compare fuel economy in other situations because these are the conditions we run in mostly.

so how much range do you get out of one tank?
If I was to guess I would say 200-230 miles on a full tank for my type of riding.

I can be happy about that kind of range. It would take me a while between fill-ups if that is the distance I would have to go to get the tank down to empty. I'm sure the fuel economy changes quite a bit depending on what type of driving you are doing with the Viking though.

The Viking should do very well but riding conditions and how you drive it will be the biggest factor. Everyone drives different and in different situations.

My viking got 133 miles on a full tank. Mostly on the farm and backroads, no trails. I didn't drive it like a wild man, but I didn't baby it either.

I put 390 miles on this weekend, Trails, logging roads, and everything in between and averaged 21 mpg every time I topped off.

That should be pretty accurate, I've been guesstimating around 20gpm with the miles put on versus gallons put in when I get back from my rides.

20L per 100km so far for me, about double what my road vehicle is so not too good. That's about 12 mpg.
