    Most Fuel Efficient RPM?

    Was just wondering what was the most fuel efficient rpm on a 2010 FXHO.
    My guess would be 4500, but haven't really had many chances on a flat day to experiment.
    Planning to do around 100 miles on a fishing trip on Friday, all Ocean.

    On my RIVA STAGE III+ FZS is at 5,500 rpms since the boost gauge is reading zero, from there on up it starts to produce boost and the fuel millage goes down the drain, Julio...

    I haven't filled back up yet to know exactly how much I burned, but when out this past Sun, we tracked 74 miles and never hit the buzzer. I had just hit a 1/4 tank at prob around 60 miles maybe more...stayed out of the boost most of the ride til the end with a few short WOT runs. This was done on calm water (rivers) including 8 miles crossing part of a lake with 1-2' chop.

    I have found between 4900-5200 to give the best fuel economy on my SHO. I've done quite a few 90+ mile rides and staying within that RPM window by far yields the best result.

    Buying the TBM fuel cell is the ticket IMO. I got mine here: http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...oducts_id=1563.

    Yeah the Friebe cell is something I'm hankering for.
    But PLB is next on the major spendy list.

    Have a look at the stats at BoatTest.com

    They usually have a chart with fuel useage.
