Low RPM mode improves fuel economy 26%
Just received this email and thought i would pass it on.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Yamaha's Exclusive Low RPM Mode Reduces WaveRunner Personal Watercraft
Fuel Consumption by 26%
KENNESAW, GA – June 2, 2008 — Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A. today
announced that the personal watercraft industry's first fuel saving
feature, Low RPM Mode, is now saving Yamaha WaveRunner owners up to 26
percent in fuel costs based on average annual use.
This fuel savings is in addition to Yamaha's already industry-leading
fuel economy, and was calculated using the Yamaha FX SHO(R) Series
WaveRunner and today's prices for regular 87-octane fuel. Yamaha
WaveRunners are the only line of personal watercraft optimized for
Regular Unleaded fuel rather than more expensive, higher octane
"It's clear that fuel consumption is an important factor in
determining how people enjoy their time on the water," said Bryan
Seti, national marketing manager, Yamaha WaterCraft. "We've always
been focused on creating cleaner, more efficient engines and our Low
RPM Mode helps our owners save money and still enjoy the fun and
excitement of riding a Yamaha WaveRunner."
Yamaha's Low RPM Mode is activated wirelessly using a handheld remote
transmitter. Once activated, the WaveRunner automatically adjusts the
maximum RPM across all throttle positions.
Yamaha's Low RPM Mode can be found on the FX SHO(R) Series WaveRunner,
which was named "2008 Watercraft of the Year" by Watercraft World(R)
magazine, and has become the most acclaimed, and technologically
advanced personal watercraft ever created. In addition to the SHO
Series, Low RPM Mode can be found on half of the models in Yamaha's
2008 WaveRunner lineup.
