2004 Polaris Sportsman 500 Fuel Issue

Recommended Posts

2004 Polaris sportsman runs out of fuel after 12 miles and over half tank remains.   Top off with one gallon of gas and it runs out again at 12 miles even though gas remains in the tank.

Can’t say specially about your wheeler but usually situations like that are a result of the fuel pickup tube either being out of position and too high in the tank, or broken off.

 

I’ve experienced what you’re describing in a leaf blower, snow mobile and boat gas tank used for a race car.
