Thread: RXT range?

    RXT range?

    Took my 2009 RXT iS 255 down the Nanticoke this morning. I didn't mark my turnaround point exactly; I went from Seaford to a point south of Vienna. I estimate it's somewhere around 20-25 miles, then turned around and went back. Quickest trip ever. Was WOT the whole way. Had exactly 5.5 gallons of gas left when I was done. Does this sound right? I expected better range even at WOT. I have perceived more range than this, but never took a trip WOT on the flat like this...

    That sounds about right then...

    My initial concern for fuel was exacerbated by the apparently very non-linear fuel gauge. It showed only 2 bars when I had almost a third of the tank left. Anybody else notice the same?

    It's normal.
    Fuel light / beeping happens around 1/3 tank of fuel left to burn.
    It might only show 1-2 bars but there is around 1/3 of a tank remaining.

    Yeah, definitely hard to be comfortable riding it down to 1 bar even when you know 2 bars is a third of the tank remaining. I'm sure that's intentional. Low fuel alert is supposed to be at 3.7 gallons or 20% left per manual. I was riding the most desolate river I've ever seen. I felt like it was the jet ski equivalent of the Bonneville Salt Flats. Only gas is at the very top and bottom and almost nothing anywhere the whole way.
