    RXT cruising range

    How far could one get on a RXT cruising at 30 mph the whole way?

    We got a few islands nearby that a group of us want to ride to.

    I would guess in the 100-120 miles range on a tank of fuel. IIRC its about 8 mpg at 5000 rpm.

    I think that is a little high...I got 60 miles the other day with about 1/4 tank left. I was running about 35-39 cause I'M breaking in my new RXT. I think 70-75 stretching to 80 is more realistic.

    Well lets see, WOT uses 4 mpg x 15 = 60. The Ultra 250 are getting way worse mileage than us and getting 90 miles on 15-17 gallons.

    Last year I went along the ICW from Harker's Island to some marina on the Neuse..50 or so miles...I had about a third of a tank left. We were cruising at 35-40 for the most part...of course we did run into a coupla 50'ers along the way. By the time we got to Bath or there abouts I was back down to 3 bars of fuel. 110 miles one way...a tank and a half.

    with only a couple wide open burst, using 13.5 gallons, I went 95 miles on a stock RXT on a completely full tank, buzzer going off when I got back. 45-48 mph most of the time with hardly any idling. the ski must be in the water to get the tank completely full.

    On my 06 GTX Ltd, I ran thru 15 gallons at 77 miles with an average speed of 28 mpg. Same boat as the RXT. There no bars left on the gauge and the alarm had been going off for minutes.
