    Its like taking a 4 cylinder out of a car and dropping a V-8 in its place......

    Another way to put it would be like putting a supercharger on your VX.....

    Measuring it by GPS, the low fuel buzzer goes off on both of my VXS skis between 75-77 miles like clockwork. 85 miles on the GPS is far as we have gone. There was a poster in an earlier thread on this topic that said he tested exactly how far these skis would go and his ran out of gas at 93 miles on his GPS.

    Stil about quarter tank at buzzer. Should get 100 miles at OPTIMAL speeds. Most people I suspect hammering pretty good. I know I did. Great on gas
