On average how far can a trophy truck go on a tank of gas? What about class 1?

I would say between 100 and 150 miles is fairly safe

4.5 to 5 is a good number that's what i get with the Kroyer 180 mpg is safe for most races Sanfelipe you get less because of all the sand.

More like 2.5 to 3 mpg unless your cruising.

150 miles has pretty much been the minimum in Baja. 5MPG seems pretty damn good. In race trim with a fuel injected engine I think that 3 to 3.5 is safe. A carburetor you can safely assume 2 to 3 depending on conditions. A carb shoots the accelerator pump full every time you depress the throttle pedal.

people are forgetting this thread asked about TT and class 1 maybe? There seems to be alot of people saying 4-5 (C-1 my guess) and 3-4 (TT) so maybe more specifics needed? I would think that the c1 gets a lil better mpg considerring the power to weight, no?

I believe Riviera has a 65 gallon cell and get 3 or 4 miles to the gallon. 200 - 260 miles.
total guestimate though

Most TT's get around 3 mpg and most have around a 70 gal tank which makes for a +/- 200 mile range. Most plan for a 150 mile range as a bare minimum. Many cl1 's achieve that range with a 40-45 gal tank.

I don't remember seeing you cruise much, if fact you always looked like you were on the throttle;)

BTW, did you ever marry that young lady that I met sitting at the airport bar in Cabo a few days after you won the 2007 Class 1 Championship?

This question has too many variables to be answered accurately. The range is broad on mpg and capacity. Then it depends on the race. Lots of sand means lower mpg. In my experience the norm is 150 to 250 miles. Thats a pretty wide range but it's a pretty vague question. I once pitted for a car that could only go about 70 miles but we all saw the Tuaregs go a lot farther than that.
