I see you had a can with extra fuel, I'd definitely need that if I tried to make one of the longer loops. No way I'd finish without running out of gas. About 60 miles is all I estimate I could get out of the Brute. I went on 2 short rides over the weekend, about 26 miles combined and used almost 1/2 tank.
When I buy a new machine I always bring a spare can of gas and run the quad until it starts coughing or runs out. I got about 90 miles on the 650 with a 4.4 gallon tank (smaller than the other Outlander Max models because of the on board air compressor). So, I figure I can go 80 miles on a tank pretty comfortably. About 150 with the cans. I've only had to use them twice, but they're good for peace of mind.
I think the dunes at Coral Pink, where you can ride, is 2100 acres or something like that. Plenty of room to have fun. I'm pretty sure there are trails that go out of the park to the north and to the south to connect up with the other trail areas.
