Went for a ride yesterday......
Went for a long yesterday. We took two skis and three people, the Honda, and the SLT. We all had a great time, we rode 60 miles!!! The low fuel indcator came on at the same time for both skis. Well we were next to the ramp. I just thouht it was a little crazy that both came on at the same time. The Honda we rode with two most of the day. It dose hold 16.5 Gallons compared to the SLT wich is about 13 Gallons. I thought the four strokes were sposed to be more fuel efficent!!!!! LOL Had a great time, we did not run into anyone else that was faster. We even rode three on the Honda, three men, over 600 lbs. It still GPS'd at 58 MPH, but it dose not ride well with three fat a@@es on it. I did manage to get thrown off of it at 60 MPH, I skipped like a rock three times!!!

No doubt, the speed of the 780's is pretty good but the mileage........WOW, it's awesome.
I think an old rule of thumb for 2 strokes was something like 10% at WOT
ex, 150HP will consume 15GPH at WOT
85HP will consume 8.5GPH at WOT
