    Fuel consumption and time

    Hey guys, that's my question, how much time are you getting from your tanks? i'm getting like 5 or 6 minutes tops, and if i do like 4 or 5 WOT passes in a 55 yards straight line, i get like 3 mins
    is this a standard or should i get more time from a 75 cc tank?

    Cheers
    Daniel

    That's about the average. I would like to see a bigger tank available.

    im pretty sure i get way more than 3 minutes. I've never actually timed it but maybe your running rich or have a leak in the tank or fuel line?

    If your running that that rich where your getting only 3 minutes. You'll probably see fuel spit out of the exhaust or maybe turn it sideways and it'll just leak/pour out

    You are too rich, check idle aswell. We got 1hr 30 mins out of 800mls of 20% fuel now its finally tuned right.

    Ours ran like you say and excess fuel from exhaust before tuning properly which meant LS and HS and idle all changed from stock. After run-in of around 3 litres.

    i'm gonna go back to stock, and tune from scratch.
    aside from that, i recently changed the spur gear, do you guys know wich was the stock tightness of the spur? i think mine is a little loose, and don't want to overtight it

    CR,
    A couple suggestions. After tuning, you might try adding an extra fuel tank, I did it and it works great. Youtube video (Jato, adding extra fuel tank) as search words and it walks you through; easy peezy. The spur gear should be tightened to where the spring is stacked w/out gaps then out 1/4 turn or so (from the manual). Hope this helps.
