GPRXP's runs 83.8 mph on soda
Seems the 4 techs will still run ok with soda in the tank as are our cousin 2 strokes will not. The container on the left is what I pulled out of the bottom of the tank after fouling plugs and generally running bad. The container on the right is a test with fresh fuel and fresh soda. The soda on the right has the same properties of movement and consistency as what was pulled from the tank. Just goes to show you that you cant keep a conversion ski from running 83.8 mph even with soda in the tank.
P.S. whoever did this being a local with a grudge or one of our group(hard to believe) I hope you rott in HELL. I spent my hard earned $$ traveled 30 some hours straight to have a good time and meet my forum friends. My reward was sabotage.

Nice hammer toe!
Damn! You got hit too? I wonder how many others got it.
It had to be a local with a WR500 still on the trailer or probably a locals nephew or grandson that said "i'll fix them there scooters" for ya gramps...

Joe that flat sucks. Were you parked by Duke? I thought there was security in the parking lot.
I'll bet next year there are a lot of skis that have a gas hose thats unhooked and a cap on the tank inside the hull.
Those are the reasons I always sleep in the back of the truck while you powder puffs go to a cozy hotel room.

Does anyone make a locking gas cap?
I got one for my car mainly for that reason. Don't want anyone taking my expensive gas out and don't want anyone putting CHIT into my tank!
Thats F'd up, and will get them shot if I catch anyone doing it to mine!

dont really know the situation youre talking about so it could easily be sabotage. however the one on the left really looks like water in the gas. Ive pulled a lot of water out of tanks and it usually gets that color. probably from rust from the gas stations tanks.
either way water or soda in your gas will mess up your day regardless of how it got there.

Joe, you can't be for sure until you do a taste test.
