Fuel Extender Reliability
Guys; I have purchased but not installed the R&D Fuel Extender because of the brief reference Skip has to the fact that his popped off during rough riding. I really, really need access to the extra couple of gallons this brings to the ride, and would love to hear your experience with this mod including how long you have had it and how hard you ride with it.
I do 100% offshore riding that results in some pretty good smacks on the front of the hull pretty often. It would be great to know if you PWCoffshore.com guys use them in your LB2CAT racers.
Thanks in advance, LB

We've had a couple of units with this mod. We did a 600 mile run a few months ago. 400 miles on first 2 days. 200 miles on day 4. 100% offshore. Mix cruising speed and WOT. Rode hard on 2 to 4 ft chops.
Occasional 4 to 6 ft brutal squalls. Went surf jumping on 8 to 10 foot chops on west coast of Culion island. Camcorder attached to helmet-cam got busted. Entire engine compartment coated with white frosting(salt). No fuel pickup issues. Skis all running great.

Thanks guys; that's what I wanted to hear.
Now, all I gotta do is figure out how to get that reverse cable off!
P.S. Mitch - Oh yeah, I'm very familiar with that ride; it's simply my favorite video to watch on the Internet right now!
