Default Losi 8ight T 2.0 RTR What kind of run times to expect

First, let me start by saying I have not owned a nitro RC since about 1993.

I picked up a used 8ight T 2.0 RTR with about a quart through it. I think I have the engine tuned fairly well not perfect yet, I think it is a little rich still. My question is what kind of run time should I expect out of a tank of fuel?

I don't think I am even getting 10 minutes out of a tank and that is running is a small area with not a lot of wide open running, but a lot of turn then full power for a few seconds running. This seems short. What kind of run times are people getting.

Like I said earlier I think the engine is still running a little rich and I am slowly bringing it leaner.

With mine I was getting just over 8:30 and pitting at 8 minutes running with a Losi RE11 pipe. A friend of mine was using a Losi RE10 pipe and getting the same amount of runtime. However, I believe his had better power and power curve. That was in racing setup and running to win.
