I USUALLY RUN MY TORNADO XP TILL MY TANK OF GAS RUNS OUT THEN I LET IT SIT FOR 10 TO 15 MINUTES THEN I FILL IT UP AND GO AGAIN. ALSO IF U NEED A TIP ILL TELL U THAT I TOOK MY CAR AND TOOK IT 2MILES DOWN THE ROAD AND BACK TO THE HOUSE AND IT WAS SO HOT THAT THE papertowl BECAME ON FIRE. I LET IT SIT FOR AN HOUR CAUSE IT WAS SO HOT.

You should be able to run it non stop from tank to tank if you have it tuned properly. The major thing that will break these engines down is heat. So I always make sure to run mine a little rich. The extra fuel helps keep the engine cool and stops it from over heating.
