I just raced at the GNCC Crawfordville race. 10 mile coarse. I thought I would have enough gas to finish my 4th lap. About 400 ft my Predator ran out of gas. So I ran about 9 3/4 mi on reserve. The only problem I was having is that on the open field runs 5th gear wfo it would start cutting out. The sad part is I know that I can run 3 laps on a 8-10 mi coarse but I couldn't find my pits. I hope this give you some idea on fuel usage.

Tina, If I read the site posting of WORCS it is only an hour long for quads. you should have plenty of fuel to run 1 hour. My predator can run up to 2 hours on a tank of gas, after that it is pretty low.

WFO, hill climbs. Have you seen the pics of the open fields and hill climbs at Crawfordsville Ironman GNCC on EXRIDERS. I was able to make 4 laps but switched to reserve on the 4 th lap just after passing my pits. Let me say when the tank gets low it will cut out at high sustained runs through the open fields. I had no problems with the hill climbs though. If the race is only 1 hour you should have plenty of gas to make it. I'll even give you my 3 mile, 30 minute warranty with that too. lol

hahaha. Yes, I did see those pics, and man...... When the PRedaotr hits Reserve, it sure goes dry shortly after too!!! I remember one time we were out hill shootin( some of those that I posted all the pics of our new track) and switched it over litereally on the hill, and turned back to refuel and it ran out right before I could even get back to fuel up,which wasnt but a few hundred feet away....WEll, I expereinced that SAME THING last wk end on the same set of hills on my 400ex 3/4 the way up!!BUT. I made it up,that one was Troys fault.hehe he thought he filled them that morning and didint.....LOL
