How far can I go on one tank of gas

I have a 97 Honda Foreman 400 which has a capacity of 3.2 gallons of fuel and was wondering how many miles i might be able to get out of it because im planning a trip with some friends up in central Maine. Most of the trails up there are pretty worn and there isn't much mud bogin.

Mileage is relevant to the terrain your riding in...I can get 35 mpg on smooth pavement,or hard pan,but get into off roading,and it drops down to 25,or lower...I'd go drain the tank,pour exactly one gallon of gas in it,and ride it(carry a gas can with gas) until it sputtered out,then note the mileage,and use that for a best case rule of thumb as the terrain you'll be in prolly won't be as smooth as the terrain you're putting around in to find out how far 1 gallon will go,and figure for less mpg...

Carry extra gas cans as the 400 Foreman doesn't really get very good mileage because of the low gearing.
Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.
