high performance but a gas guzzler...
i'm sure many of us 2 stroke members are burning more fuel than when she was stock.More fuel/ air for accelaration ,compression for hp and being a 2 stroke, alot of fuel is wasted during the compression/combustion phase.Does the fuel controller play one of biggest roles in fuel consumption.Im doing roughly $25 ($3 a gal.) for 25 miles gps, riding WOT a good part of the time.You feel the pinch to?

Dave stay out of the throttle a bit and you get better range...
WOT the ski runs Fat, and you`ll quickly deplete your fuel...
on average I find the range is better with the few mods and efi controller than when stock...
remember, hull set-up, prop, rider weight and water conditions are the variables...
Dave, welcome to the world of making your ski accel harder! = more fuel Homie!

Time to be thinking smart and going with a fuel company that has competitive prices. VP doesn't sell that great around here. Too expensive. Many say, "You can tell who is sponsored by VP." Only guys who are sponsored run it here. Many go with Torco or Sunoco.
Here is a spec sheet. You can decide.
I am buying 110 Sunoco for 350 for 55 gal. Breaks down 6.36 a gal
112 sits at 6.48 a gal
116 sits at 6.98 a gal
