    1996 SLT 780 to PreMiz, Oil tank reserve

    Hey guys,

    I am going to convert my SLT 780 to premix and was going to use my existing oil tank as a reserve fuel tank.

    My plan was to:

    Connect a hose from the oil tank to the fuel tank and put that on a peacock valve where when fuel is low, I can dump it into the gas tank.

    I thought this method would be better vs a 3 way On/Off/Reserve(Oil) because it eliminates the low fuel warning and is very straightforward.

    Let me know your thoughts and views,
    Cheers!

    That actually doesn't sound like a bad idea...I am still new to this whole Polaris PWC world but I wonder if there isn't a way to take the reserve pickup hose out of the fuel tank (if you have one) and put it in the oil tank, then run that line to the "reserve" spot on the hull-mounted fuel selector valve (if yours has it). Hopefully one of the more knowledgeable gurus will chime in.

    For the small amount of fuel the oil tank would hold i dont think its worth the effort. The SLT 780 holds 15 gallons of gas. Where are you going to go where that wont be enough? If you are taking long rides you may be better off strapping a 5 gallon can to tje back of the ski. I just dont see it working well using tje oil tank for gasoline.

    Another question. Why premix?
