    Gas in oz is over $1.50 per litre

    Results of muscle shoot out were interesting but I would love to also know how skis compare for fuel consumption.
    I have a Honda F-12X which is really good on fuel, but if I get a new RXT-X am I gonna be disgusted with fuel consumption? What about the new Yamaha? Performance is paramount but we are paying over $6 a gallon so
    I have to consider the fuel cost.

    If you are worried about fuel consumption then I wouldnt get any ski with a power adder. I find it funny that just last year the yamaha and sea doo guys were all over the U250 about its fuel con. but now find themselves in the same situation with their new models.

    So, do you reckon the U250, RXT-X and supercharged Yamaha are all in the "use a butt load of gas " class? Are we talking twice as much as the Turboed Honda or just say 10% more? Where would I get facts and figures from?

    Anything thats making good horsepower is gonna burn alot of fuel. I dont know much about the Honda but im sure the guys in that forum could give you some good info.
