Trolling speed V. WOT fuel economy? yamaha SUV
Finally figured out how to get a nice hands-free trolling speed with the SUV this weekend (rag stuffed between the grip and throttle cable). Damn it sure seems like it was thirsty! I don't really know how much fuel was in the tank when I started but it went bye bye quickly.
Have any of you ever topped off your tank and then run awhile at trolling speed to see how many miles per gallon or gph you got V WOT or moderate throttle?
For any other interested SUV types, I now know that my SUV gets 7 miles at 30mph after the low fuel warning buzzer goes off pre-mix 45:1. Then it is left to the 3.1 gallon reserve. WOW! Now you can all sleep better .
Now I just have to wait till payday to fill the pig up again!
