    How many galone of gasoline?

    How many galon of gasoline does a Polaris 1996 SLX 780 gas tank hold? and how many miles per hour it gives? How much will it be in a full tank? I want to find out because i want to go to an island that only you can go by boat or jetski. Help please.

    i think the question we will need to know is how far is the island that you want to go to? Google maps now lets you pick any two points and get a distance between them. when you have that, I'm sure we will be able to tell you if you can make it that far.

    Too many variables......

    Water conditions (rough or flat)

    Riding style (WOT or just a light cruise)

    Mods done to ski (any engine work like bigger carbs, bigger jets, etc...)

    1 or 2 people riding (weight)

    Wind (head or tail)


    Your gas tank will hold 9.8 gals.

    The owners manual for a 1995 750 lists it able to cruise WOT for 50 miles. A 780 would get a little less than that.

    You can always carry extra fuel strapped on the back of the ski. Just make sure the container is COMPLETEY sealed so water doesn't get in, and fuel doesn't leak out.

    OK lets pretend it is the worst scenario how much miles per gallon minimum?
    And only me riding in it. I'm 130 pounds. So jet-ski weight plus mine not so much.
