    Fuel Consumption in a 06 GPR

    I filled up the GPR with the 06 setup in it, went out and rode and noticed that my fuel was down to 2 bars and the beeper finally went off after a while. I rode it back to the dock and pulled the ski out. Thinking that I would have to put about 12 or 13 gallons in it, I decided to go fill it up last night. It took about 7 gallons to fill it up. I don't get it, the beeper was going off, why would it only take 7 gallons to fill it up? I got close to a hours with of riding on the ski, is this typical for it to suck up that much fuel in such a short period of time? My buddies GPR (05) was down a half of a tank probably. Any ideas?

    Your fuel sender probably is not adjusted perfectly. When my buzzer goes off, I have about 5 gals left.

    To answer your question it's sounds about normal. I'd say 5 to 7 gallons is the norm when the buzzer starts going off. Yamaha warning buzzers all seem to go off earlier then they need to or at least oil and gas. My oil warning starts going off when it's only down about 1and 1/2 quarts the thing holds about 5 quarts. Fuel is not alot different I have put alot of time on after the buzzer says I need fuel.

    So, how do I adjust this to make it respond when it gets lower? It was a pain in the ass to ride around with the buzzer going off, so I just haulled ass to cure the situation, hahahahaha. But is there a way to set it to come on at a later time?
