    Anybody know or have real world experience w/ gas mileage on one?

    I'm talking about the Kawasaki, Polaris, Arctic Cat, John Deere, etc.

    I'm looking for one to conduct my business in a small town. town is about 5milesx5miles and I could use the side x side as a daily driver.

    I would most likely be putting street/turf tires on it in order for it to be quieter and have the tread last longer.

    I know that with these things, people normally do not look for good gas mileage, but with the prices continuing to go up, do you guys think that these could get decent mileage?

    what are OT's thoughts?

    Probably not that great...my Brute Force 750 only gets about 17 mpg, those UTV's are heavier and just plain bigger than my ATV.

    Do they have cush drive on the trans?

    And more important, can they really be street legal where you are?

    they can be street legal where I am. all it takes is a rearview mirror, horn, headlights, and taillights.
