    Please Help

    I sold my 2005 rxt to my cousin. Well we were out on the water today for about 45 mins. When we took the ski out of the water we noticed a fuel trail coming from the water. We couldn't really smell any fuel from inside the hull. The ski has been sitting in the garage since last year the last time I rode it and I never had a fuel problem. Now I did have a custom intake on the ski but I took it off and put the stock intake back on. You think maybe I could have messed up a fuel line or anything? The ski ran awesome on the water and didn't seem like it was losing power or anything.

    I keep telling myself that the gas could of come from the water and it just dripped off the ski when we pulled it out of the water. The ski has had 3/4 of gas in it for a couple of months and my cousin rode the ski for about 45 to and hour and its still above half tank of gas.

    gba, my opinion is its not gas ... almost all boats and skis when pulled out at the ramp and the drain plug is opened, will drain exactly what you described. Its not gas, its just normal bilge water which almost always has a little oil in it as well, and when it drains you are seeing the colors from the slight bit of oil in the bilge water, and it does look exactly like gas does with the rainbow of colors. No worries, totally normal ...

    Thanks Vern there is some oil where the drain plugs are. So if oil mixed in with the bilge water coming out when coming off the ramp can make those rainbow colors like gas makes then thats all it is.

    Yes, oil will do the same thing. Oil gets spilled and the water picks up a small amount of it and gives you the rainbow effect....
