    Fuel level speed

    How much of a speed difference does everyone here see with different levels of fuel. I was able to go out a little today and on a full tank I only hit 71.1mph.

    Since I am on the heavier side of the scale. My ski runs its best with a 1/2 tank of gas. Full I run 68.5 and at a half tank I pull 69.9 to the ocassional 70 with my LARD A$$! But things are about to change.

    On a 1/3 to 1/2 it is about the same, but will bonce more.

    I'll agree with the 1/2 tank. If i tried to run it really low it seemed like the smallest ripple would make it porpise.

    So about a 1.5 mph difference in speed from full to half.

    as close to dead empty as possible, am I reading this thread correct? I lose 1mph when its at 1/2 tank

    No you do not lose 1mph at half a tank. Everyone gets their best speed with half a tank.
