Default Mods trx 2.5 for better fuel consumption?

Hello, Is there any site out there that will help me mod my trx 2.5 for better fuel consumption? Dont mind loosing a little power to gain fuel. I run a EDM dirt oval division and have to use a 75cc tank and she is running really close on a 4 min run. Dont want to have to worry about running out of fuel. Thanks for any info and everyone have a Merry Christmas!! Patrick

Maybe a bigger tank mod. I think the t-maxx has a 125, or a 150cc in the trucks. I can run about 8 or 9 minutes pulling a 10 pound truck. I would look into it.

stick a carb venturi into the air intake tube put a ziptie around the outside to sqqeeze it in place.. the resulting retune of the motor will allow for alot less fuel consumption..
