    While this certainly true, its pretty easy to through an extra 5 gallon jerry can in the box.

    A great choice the viking is. The company I work for uses side by sides and we have bought many different models. They gave me a 2014 viking. I added a spacer lift and 27" meats. This unit has been a favorite! I always take spare fuel on hunting trips but I hardly ever need it. With the bigger tires the odo/speedo reads slow and I still get over 200km to a tank. Comfort/leg room is better than any polaris/can am/kawi I have been in. I just recieved a new 2019 ranger 1000. Its a pretty cool rig but the viking still has it beat in comfort and just plain usefulness. Price wise they are as cheap as a side by side comes!

    The Polaris 570 Midsize is also a great hunting rig...Ive had mine (2016 powersteering model) for 3 years now. Its got about 7000 kms on it now and hasn't had a single problem.

    I've added 27" tires, windshield, top, wiper kit, heater kit and winch...the midsize will get you into much tighter areas than a full size and in 3 years its packed 3 moose plus multiple deer and beer.

    Just another possible option for you to look at....

    My BIL has a Viking. Mileage is slightly worse than my carburated grizzly 660
    He added a second muffler and the optional top cylinder head motor mount. Really helped with engine vibration.

    On another note my dad has a 2016 ranger ETX it’s only 320cc but it’s a great unit. Plenty fast enough, hauled a 50” bull moose out in one trip last year. Has a huge fuel tank and gets best milage out of all our machines.
