    Default 1991 Phazer II gas tank

    Can anyone tell me the capacity of the 1991 Phazer II gas tank? Never quite know how far I can push it. It's my daughters sled and is the one that sets the pace for our gas stops.

    Thanks,

    Smurf

    I believe its 8.2 , I have an old brochure of 1990 and a 1992 and both are 8.2 I am sure that 1991 is the same . I am getting about 11.9 MPG if yours is like mine should get about about 93 miles to tank maybe more ...maybe less depending on conditions .

    Thanks. I'm going to watch gas milage better, but it seems I can get to the 90 mile range before I fill up. Maybe we've been just getting lucky.

    Thanks

    Thumbs up

    Yep..8.2 !!

    Now, not sure how your daughter might ride, but my wife's Phazer II consistently gets 16 MPG..so at 8 gal, that gives you 128 range.

    At least that our experiences, & while my wife isnt hard on the throttle, we are usually off trail & playing in powder. Now if she pushes the sled, it will drop to 15 MPG, darn good fuel sipping motors IMHO !!

    Ok , so whats with the good ol gas mileage ,. What am I doing wrong? I cleaned the carbs took all the gas from the tank (removed and cleaned it . )Am I missing something ? I want good gas mileage tooo . I am pretty light on the throttle , not a crazy person on the trail . I think I drive it easy to normal . Do you think I need a new clutch spring . Maybe get a High performance belt. I kinda confused.

    The overall state of tune such as worn/dirty clutches, belt offset/C.C., too rich of jetting, bad bearings, ski alignment all effect mileage. A Tight track adds a lot of drag, heck I run my tracks just tight enough to avoid ratcheting.
