    Fuel consumption comparison?

    Does any one have links/articles for fuel consumption of the RXP vs GP1200r or 1300? I thought I saw it in an old PWC mag but I can't find it....

    That's more than a full tank an hour at WOT!

    But what it doesn't show you is that after you mod the other skis to match the performance of the RXP, they will all use just as much if not more fuel than the RXP.

    yea thsoe numbers are all BS in my opinion.... which gets better fuel mileage.... the RXT or the GTX SC....

    the RXT is the answer folks... i rode with a buddy on a 04 SC.... and i felt like i was sipping gas compared to what his gas guage said.... bc the slower skis are struggling and working harder to be at the comfortable cruising speed of a RXP/RXT... a simple science.

    so at WOT, of course they RXP/RXT will guzzle gas, but hold the throtle at the speed the other skis are going and i bet it gets better mileage/hours per tank full than other skis... that's what all these BS facts forget to account for

    Gas mileage concerns are wayyy too practical for my book. It would probably be the last thing I ever thought about IF I ever thought about it.

    If you have to ask about gas consumption, you can't afford it anyway. But just for the record...I ride with a bunch of GTIs and if I don't do a bunch of WOT I have less fuel consumtion than they do. I go all day with them. big
