Only Got 85 Miles On Ims 3.1 Gal Tank

My first time I ran the tank to reserve this past weekend in Dove Springs. I ran with some Bros of mine. We all had IMS tanks and I seem to get a lot worse MPG than them. We made an 80 mile loop and I ran out of gas goin to the restroom at 85 miles. Not sure what was left on reserve, I was next to camp when I ran out.
I also noticed that in the slow technical stuff, my 08 WR was the only one not bubbling in the resevore. It didn't seem to be running too good either. When cruising it poped and slagged a little, but when on the throttle, she took of like a bat out of hell. Was it running too rich?. Basically stock with AIS kit installed and pipe uncorked.
All the other guys had fuel left over.........

Yeah, I had that 3.1 ims tank on my 07 for a while, and 85 mi sounds about right. You can scrounge a few more out of the reserve, maybe 10 or 15. It's all about the gatorade bottle full of gas in the back pack. Even if you personally don't need it, one of your buddies probably will.
Funny about the gatoraid bottle, I usaully carry one and the one trip I forgot it, I ran out.
