Just picked up a 2011 XP 550F for my grandson.. Rode 90 miles and low gas light came on and gauge showed empty. It runs great. Can anything be done to improve gas mileage ?

The fuel gauge on these sleds are notoriously inaccurate. The low fuel light could be on with 1/3 or more fuel left in the e tank. How much fuel did it take to fill the tank back up after the 90 miles is what needs to be known.
It took 9 gallons to fill it.

The 550f is terrible on gas and oil. It’s just the nature of the beast.
I should've checked before I bought I guess. I wonder why a smaller low rpm and lower hp motor is so hard on gas ?

Not to mention a fan cooled engine has to run rich to keep from burning up.🥵
Carbed motor isn't going to run as efficiently as fuel injection. 10mpg seems about normal for that engine.

I picked up an 11 TNT 550F this year and am finding fuel mileage is about 10 mpg.
