No, but I get 25 to 30 on the trails out of my '88 xr300. I think it runs a bit rich. Maybe a lot a bit rich.

I have a 2004 and get about 18 miles per gallon. So roughly about 32 miles on a tank of gas.

I've gone over 40 on about 3/4 tank in the desert.

I rode my 400 the same route that I have taken my 650L on and know that it is about 30 miles and it took about 1/2 tank (that is one way). I wouldnt think that the 450 would be much diff. I was not going easy either, 5th wide open most of the way.
