Eh? 500 EXC - fuel finishing way too quickly!

So the past few rides I've noticed my 2015 500 EXC fuel depleting like hell.

I go riding with a friend who has the same bike (well mine is the 6 days but they're the same).

when we stop to rest, I like to take a gander at his tank and compare it to mine.

Always its been the same.

Except the first time I noticed the fuel issue.

At halfway through the ride (60km) I checked when we stopped to rest and we had the same amount.

Upon returning, mine was almost empty whereas he had singnificantly more.

Lets say I had about 1.5 liters left (from the 9 liter tank) and he had at least 6 liters.

Then it happened again.

This time it happened bad.

the first three times we were doing canyons and mountains.

The most recent time, we did sand dunes.

15 km into the ride, just 15km!
My tank was completely empty.

I've ridden dunes before and done up to 90km and still returned with plenty of fuel.

Whats going on?

Theres no leak, I would've noticed.
