Track speed gas consumption

I was wondering about how much a late model R6 consumes on the track. I have a day at big willow coming up but all my other experiences were on smaller bikes and two strokes that sipped gas. I have a 5 gal jug and a full tank at the moment and was wondering if I should grab another 5gal.

Thanks!

Re: Track speed gas consumption

I don't think you need any more than that I don't ever burn much more than a tank unless its a open day. At my home track we have 3 classes most of the time and we run any where from 6 to 8, 20 minutes sessions a day for each class now if we have a poor turn out we sometimes combine a & b and on rare occasions all three classes and then we get lots more riding in but with a full tank and 5 gallons you will burn out before you burn that much fuel.

I appreciate the response I was hoping 5 gal was enough, with my 250 i was doing a tank and 2 gal per day.

When are you going to Big willow? A full tank and a 5gal. can will get you just past the end of the day if you run every minute of every session.

Your gas mileage will go to shit on the late model r6 if you're using the power. I had my gas mileage drop by more than half at the track.

That being said, a full tank of gas and a several gall jug on the side will be enough for a typical track day. At least, it has been in my experience.

I ended up using a tank and about 3.5 gal for 7 sessions

I always get my gas light on between 75 and 80 miles at the track and about 90 miles before she runs completely dry.

I always take 7 gallons of gas and a full tank on the bike so I can ride the entire day. Five gallons extra usually does it but having a little extra gas is way better than not having enough when we run the long sessions.

Blue because it is faster.

Re: Track speed gas consumption

better to have more than you need, than to have to buy it there or run out and grab some.
