2013 vs 2014 vx cruiser
I have a 2013 VX Cruiser and looking to buy a second pwc. I would like the same pwc so they can have the same speed, mpg etc but I want to buy new. The 2014 looks like the same pwc but a little lighter. I would think this wouldn't make a difference but the reviews say mpg gets worse:
2014 - http://www.boattest.com/Partners/Par...oid=3008&p=3&s
Best cruise for the Yamaha VX Cruiser (2014-) is 32.8 MPH (52.8 KPH), and the boat gets 8.85 miles per gallon (MPG)
2013 - http://www.boattest.com/boats/boat_video.aspx?ID=1910
Best cruise for the Yamaha VX Cruiser (2012-2013) is 31.2 mph (50.2 kph), and the boat gets 10.21 miles per gallon (mpg)
These numbers seem huge at 10% and the lighter ski gets worse mpg? Maybe their tests are way off?

Yamaha used their nano excel hull material on this years vx models to trim off 65 pounds.
They said it would be 23% more fuel efficient, so I'm not really sure about the mpg difference.
