Thread: FZR Fueltank
10-16-2009, 04:35 AM #1
I was out practicing yesterday on the track. I rode some laps with the beeper for the low fuel on and finally I lost power in the turns which indicates that I was very low on fuel.
I headed back to the ramp and the ski almost staled on me the last few meters.
With the ski on the trailer I blew out the water the ski died from lack of gas.
When I went to fill it up I could only get 62 litres (16.4 gallons) in it. The tank is supposed to hold 70 litres (18.5 gallons).
Anyone else run the ski dry to confirm this?

do a physical check of the tank sounds like its imploded slightly from being empty. This can happen if the pressure relief valve on the fuel tank has a problem or isnt connected securely as tank takes 70L when full

I rode mine for about 20 minutes after the buzzer first sounded which I believe is supposed to indicate that you have 4.8 gallons remaining. When I was idling through the no wake zone to put the boat up the engine died just as I was beaching it. It fired right back up and it took just over 17.5 gallons to top it off.

i may be wrong, but i think when they state holding fuel capasity, its a full volume to teh top of teh tank, which you cant alway sget that much in. I noticed my ski was full to the top of teh rubber filler hose, looked inside and still had 3 inches of empty head space.. i assume they count full volume, not what you really can put in it.
