  1. #1

    Gas Mileage??

    What kinda mileage are you guys getting out of a tank of gas?
    I use 93 octane and i fill it as much as it will take and i get around 40-50 miles per tank I don't think this is normal...I have changed the plugs and I'm running some fuel injector cleaning stuff in this tank...Ive seen where they say 70-80 miles per tank is normal but umm itd be nice if i could get that

    i was running on fumes up to the dock to gas up on our trip. i got about 45 miles.

    70-80 sounds impossible to me.

    anybody try the deep fuel pickup? That gives you access to the 5 gallons of gas that the regular fuel pickup can't reach. I get around 60 miles on 15 gallons. Thats 4 mpg. Use that extra 5 gallons and that would put me at 80 miles.

    I get 45 miles before the low fuel beep. I am usually 50-60 miles out before low fuel. Since I added the riva and wedge low fuel comes with about 15 gallons burned.

    I have a question...

    My Ultra really plows into the water during hard turns, and alot of water flies over the hood. I can sort of control it during riding. Due to all the water coming over, the front hatch gets water in the tray and my back mats are peeling up.

    My real question is, I was looking to put a PWC Audio system on it, but with all that water I don't think my $200-300 investment will last long. What do you guys think?

    I have the deep fuel pick-up and went 82 miles before the ski shut off. This was cruising at between 40-50 most of the way. At WOT it will only do about 60 miles.

    A few questions about the deep fuel pickup.

    1) Would it void warranty if dealer installed it?
    2) Will the buzzer still accurately go off at 8 gallons?

    I dont think the pickup has anything to do with the sender on the fuel guage or buzzer.
