Re: 570 fuel mileage
Here in Cheyenne, WY. the elevation is 6,200. When I ride mountain trails it can be from 7,000 to 11,000. Have ridden at 12,400. Fuel injection is the only way to go when at altitude, or when changing altitude as dramatically as I do very often. The altitude in the desert where I also ride alot, not yet with the 570, varies from 1,600 to 4,500. In Utah I can ride at higher elevations similar to WY.
I haven't had my RZR 570 in the desert or Utah mts yet, but when I rode my 850 XP in all these places I found that altitude did not affect fuel mileage very much. Engine size, speed and riding style are, in my opinion, the largest factors in fuel mileage for any vehicle in in any terrain. Also how much you use low range is a big factor. I try to use low range sparingly, relying on experience, picking a 'line' and riding style to traverse terrain. To me low range is for very extreme and rough terrain, especially going up and down hills. Also use low when traction is limited or unknown as is water, snow or mud.
