man this think barely burns any fuel if you stay off the throttle
Took my friend and her 2 year old daughter with me on my usual run that by myself I can burn 1/2 tank. Since I really took it easy with them (average probably 25mph) I think I
only used like 2-3 bars.
Funny the little girl started off saying ,"I dont like the little boat", and, "I dont want to go
on that" by the end of the day when I would slow down for a no wake zone it was, "go
faster and weeeeee". lol typical.

When I ride with my wife it the same thing. She burns 5 gal and I burn 9. She on a bigger motor ski too. I guess I am on it more.

yep. The day before that, by myself I put $20 in it, burnt that right up in a few hours.

You dont even want to know how much fuel a twin 787 Challenger uses in a day of WOT fun.

I looked mpg on google waverunners. Guys did actually test it out. at about 25-30 or 30 -35 depending on ski ,,,,some were showing 12-13 mpg same ski wot 2-3. Seems to be a sweet spot at about little over speed.

yea the difference is amazing. Besides its not so bad taking a leisurely cruise once in a while anyway.
Hardest thing is dealing with your pride when someone going ROARING by lol

Yeah if I go for a long cruise below 35 mph it lasts me forever. So much different than my 2 stroke.

essentially its an 800 pound 3 cylinder. If you put wheels on it and stayed off the SC probably get 60mpg
