    RXT fuel buzzer

    Was wondering approx. how many gallons remaining when buzzer goes off on a RXT.

    Thanks.

    The low fuel warning buzzer will go off when the ski sustains 1 bar of fuel on the fuel guage. Each bar on the guage is approximately 2 gallons hence there being 8 bars for a 15.9 gallon tank.

    That guage is NO where near linear though... I think 60% of the gas is represented in the first 2 bars.

    I highly doubt that. Especially because there would be no logical underpinnings to the arguement. Next time you fuel up you should do it in 2 gallon increments and see how many bars are added each time you fill it by 2 gallons.

    RXP/RXT have the same gas tanks right?

    If so, when the alarm goes off on my RXP, I have between 2.5 and 3 gallons.

    I have run my ski many times on very long distances and have hit that buzzer countless times, and a few times I was very close to the gas dock and every time I added between 12-13 gallons.

    On the 04' you could go a LOOONG way @ 35 mph until you ran out.......
    although the beeping makes you go mad.........

    I have an RXP. I drop 1 bar @ 4 gallons, then each addtl bar is 1.5 gallons and the buzzer comes on @ approx 13 gallons used when the last bar is showing. Roughly 3 gallons left when the buzzer comes on. Guy I ride with has an RXT and fuel gauge shows the same as mine.

    Fizzle I think he is right. When you get to 4 bars you have way less than half a tank left. You can ride forever on the first two bars and once they are gone the rest disappear quick.

    As far as the buzzer, you have around 2 gallon or 2 gallons and a half left. Like 10 minutes at WOT or 5-6 miles no problem. I've had the last bar blinking and still rode 2 miles back to the ramp.
