    looking to snow check a new Polaris SBA 800 or the Ski Doo XRS 850. Just curious if the Polaris is getting close to the same fuel mileage as the Ski Doo?

    Fuel consumption is all the twitch of the thumb. Guys that are constantly in and out or go brap brap brap everywhere use way more fuel.
    I have a steady thumb and use way less fuel then my buddies I ride with and we're all doing the same speed. I'm leading half the time too. All about the steady smoothness to get better mileage. Which I could really give a rats ass about fuel mileage. I'm just a steady throttle guy, always have been

    But, the new 850's are bad on fuel as we've seen. Adding those two more injectors did this.

    My buddy was always about a gallon to the plus side compared to me each fill up.....it equated to about .5 to 1 mpg more....we both ride pretty aggressively and I don't like giving him or that sled any more credit than they already give themselves, but that's what I found on my 17' 800 Assault vs his 17 850...though he had a 129" vs my 144".

    850s bad on fuel? my indy xc 850 is great on fuel.
    out of a group of 6 or 7 sleds i was the cheapest to fill up when it came time. polaris and skidoos

    i would say i was the heaviest rider of the day as well. 250lbs with gear on
