    2007 RXT Gas guzzler?

    How many hours do you all get from your RXT on a full tank?

    My T-X went thru 16 gallons yesterday with approximately 3 hours of use. It sucks it down!

    Not sure on hours, but when my ski was stage 1 level we rode for 35 miles and most of it was wide open and at the end of the day I still had about 1/3 tank of fuel left. Typically I could ride all day and only use about 1/2 tank.

    All depends on how you ride it.

    The T-X models have 40 more hp than ours so I can't speak for those, but we can usually get a full day of mixed riding, many times we fill them up on Saturday and still have some fuel for fun on Sunday. We ride with some Ultras from time to time and I think the RXT is significantly better on fuel than those, but not nearly as thrifty as the Hondas.

    I think the RXT/P gives a very good performance-to-fuel ratio
    (whetever the hell that means )
    because you are dominating pretty much everything else on the water, on glass or chop...

    Speedskixp is correct, it really depends on how you ride, constant WOT and racing is going to use more fuel---you get over 60 mph and it goes down quick, but I could swear that our RXT's get as good or better economy at the low and mid RPM ranges as our old FX-140's. Hope this helps...

    So true. The P-X can be empty in a short as 1.5 hours if i'm on it really hard or I can make it last all day running to and from the dock.
