    Depends on many factors.Water condition is it choppy or glass? How fast your going? Im guessing cruising speed would be around 35 mph. This is the speed where u get the most mpgs. Just to name a few factors that contribute to mpgs

    On a recent river run I did 270km (167.7 miles) and used 137 Litres (36 Gallons).

    You'll get 80 Miles on a tank cruising, and an easy 65 Miles with plenty of full throttle blasts.

    You'll get 4 MPG but never more than 5 MPG.

    I checked mine last year - when my ski was new - Reference:

    With a 20 gallon capacity tank - you will think you can go 100 miles - yet the "Low Fuel" buzzer will probably go off with 5 to 7 gallons remaining.

    Hence - 75 miles/tank or so like Mal stated above is gonna be it.

    Have fun - and post-up some pics of that new machine !!!

    I'd be careful with that Eco mode button

    In the users manual it says things like "by using this mode it chooses a leaner fuel injection map that prioritized fuel economy over ride ablility"

    Take from that what you will....

    OK. Yeah, I don't think it would switch to a different map. I think it's just throttle control. I've used it quite a bit, flat water and rough. I find in really rough (ocean swell and chop) Eco gives me more throttle control. In flat water, if you go easy on the trigger and keep it around 5000rpm you probably won't see any difference to Eco mode.

    Cheers.

    If you are cruising at a "constant" speed, the ECO button does not save you any more fuel than when not in the ECO mode.
    The ECO mode only affects the throttle response/acceleration.
    You will still reach the same top speed in the ECO mode but it just takes longer to get there.
