    I actually checked the mileage back during the summer on a trip with a gps. I think it was 3.4 or some where right in that area.

    If you are concerned about fuel mileage, the 250 isnt for you.You need a Yamaha VX 110.

    Not even close to all day. If you put around on it you may get most of a day in. If you ride it and use all it's power, you'll be lucky to get a few hours ride time. According to the shop manual, it burns about 11 gph at full throttle. It holds a little over 21 gallons. Do the math. I love my 250X but it SUCKS gas........
    Big time!

    This all jibes with my experience as well. I meant to record exact galls per hr and miles per gall this summer. I never followed through, in part because the time of operation was easier to track and my numbers were pretty much what FraggleR reports.

    I can easily go 75 miles in an afternoon (with much lollygagging) but I typically schedule at least 1 marina stop & carry some gas with me. I now know much better exactly how far I can go on 0 to 2 fuel bars (and its quite a ways) but I try to avoid it.

    I wonder if the 250LX gets radically better mileage with no SC? I dont think Id ever give up an SC but I assume the LX gets much better mileage.

    15F = Best fuel milage. Power to wieght.
    12F = Not as good as the 15F, underpowered motor for the wieght
    Ultra LX = worse off due to the 200 plus pounds over the 15F
    Ultra 250= King of the pack and drinks like one.


    I used these as the line up because they all have the same base motor.
