215 vs 255 fuel consumption
Comparring the 215 & 255 motors, anyone has first hand experience on fuel consumption? Is it close or will the 255 horse drink gas like the Ultra 250?

I have no experience with ultra 250 but comparing stock 215 to 255 the X will use more gas or atleast that is what i have seen with the 7 hours on the x.

I know my RXP-X is sucking the gaas compared to my wife's GTX SC, but then again I am varying the throttle a lot still trying to break it in.

I filled up both my 215 and 255 for a ride last weekend. When the 255 hit the low fuel buzzer, the 215 still had 3 bars showing on the gas gauge.

I'm starting to wonder if the X skis will use as much fuel as the Ultra 250 (which is a lot!)

It might be more than just the motor difference ... the tunnel is bigger and the grate is far more aggressive, and both increase drag. Part of the difference in gas mileage might be due to that as well ... but if that is part of it, a less aggressive grate (Riva's) might help mileage a bit too ... hopefully.
