Does any one know what kind of range i can expect out of a stock YZ tank? I've heard maybe only 35-40 miles is this true? I found a good deal on one but may still get a IMS or clarke if thats the most milage I can get.

I got 90kms and then I measured what was left and there was 200ml of fuel left.

I road a wide open harscramble and was on the gas hard 80% of the time and used 2.4 gallons and road 49 miles. Using that ratio and the fact that the YZ tank holds 2.1 gallons the worst case scenario should be roughly 42-43 miles one one tank of gas. This means that I would not have been able to finish a 2 hour hare scramble on the YZ tank. Good think I opted for the 3.3 gaoolon clarke or I would have really done bad. :)
