Miles per gallon 215/255/260 guys
I went on a 6+ hour ride on Saturday and covered 151 miles according to my Garmin. I used 24.3 gallons, and my fuel buzzer went off when I only filled up with 11.5 gallons. I guess letting these skis breathe really does make a difference!
That's over 6 mpg and there was some racing, some speed runs, plenty of messing around, and the last 15 miles were a solid 55 mph cruise.
This is on an 08 RXT-X with mods in my sig.

I've burnt through a tank in about an hour and a half before, that was fun.

it depends solely on how you ride.
On my 08 rxpx 255 I ran 7-8200 rpm for 2 hrs and the gas beep told me it was time to chill....
No mods / bone stock... 70 mph gps with only the stock prop pitched by Chezzy ...

with my stock grate, i have burned a whole tank in a little under 2 hours before also. but an aftermarket grate made a HUGE difference in fuel economy for me. i can usually run for about an hour on $20 in gas now.

My rxpx got about 90 miles out of the tank riding 2-up and with a 5 gallon Jerry can on the back. I was pretty happy with that. Mostly was cruising at 5500rpm but a bit of WOT thrown in now and then.

yup, the GTR has gone through 16 in about 1.5 to 2.0 hrs.
I bet I can get through 16 in 1.0 if i tried.

Can't wait to let my 12PX breath after reading this thread. Road all day Saturday with a buddy who has a 09PX with intake, free mods, grate, rear exhaust, and we both road the same through out the day. I just made it home, maybe 10 total miles more riding and had zero bars left while he made it back while bouncing between 2-3 bars.
