Fuel consumption

Hi All, I own a 2016 Brute and love it. I’m wondering if anyone else feels their fuel gauge is not accurate vs how much gas is actually in the tank? My gauge shows fuel being used quickly (digital indicator bars decrease quickly in relatively short distances at easy driving), and I find it hard to believe there’s so little fuel in the tank. Does your brute burn gas like crazy or are the gauges “off” a bit?cheers.

I think the brute uses quite a bit of fuel. Mine just hauls firewood and i use it to visit the neighbors and get the mail. Also basic chores around the homestead. I fill it up once a month but only travel maybe 15 miles a week. I will have to check the odometer next time i fill it up for more accurate info.

Just yesterday I did 26 miles or so and filled up at a fuel station. Doing the math, I got 12 mpg. I was traveling about 20 mph on the average. Had my four year old riding with me so no wheelies or aggressive riding at all.
