Gas Alarm Buzzer - At what Level
Kind of interesting, I hit the buzzer this week end, ran it about ten minutes and then filled it. It took 12.5 gallons, if they are all the same that puts the buzzer at 5.5 gallons.

That info is good to know.
Is the remaining 5.5 gallons all useable?

Is All 5.5 usable?
I don't think so. My experience with the buzzer is about the same usually about 12.5 to 13 or so to fill it back up. The other day I ran my FZS for about 5 miles of near WOT after the buzzer first went off and then beached it to get the trailer. On the way to the trailer the engine died once while at idle, the only time the boat has ever done that. It did refire and drove to the trailer so it still had some fuel but obviously not much. The next day it took only 15.78 gallons to top it back off.
Maybe some deep pickup mod is possible to get the last 2-3 gallons?

I have been thinking of this "deep pickup mod" as well. We sometimes go on 100+ mile rides and the extra fuel (that's already in the tank) could be used. Maybe a separate deep pickup with a three way valve would be better, remake of the reserve from the two strokes. Does anybody know why they went away from a reserve anyway? I liked them, would run until completely out then switch and head to the dock.
