    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.

    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.

    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
