    Mileage of RXT-X 08 & GTX iS Limited 09

    Want to know if I can take these from chicago to Michigan.

    How far can they go one one tank of gas going at a good pace

    It is 47 miles across the lake.

    Thanks!

    You will get about 70-75 miles on 1 tank of gas from the RXT-X if you behave yourself. That's cruising anywhere from 45 to 60 mph. I made it 100 miles on 1 tank plus one 5 gallon jerry can.

    Since the predominent wind is from the southeast, getting to Michigan should not be a problem from Chicago - getting back might be... Ron

    I have a lake house on the other side so my plan is after work friday hop on the wave runner take it to the lake house then when sunday comes around ride them back home across the lake.

    Thanks for the responses!

    Oh man that is a major faux pas. A Sea Doo is not a wave runner and a wave runner is not a Sea Doo. We don't likes them Yammi boys over here

    Are you serious?

    I thought a waverunner was a waverunner. (2-3 person sitdown rider)

    and a jet ski was a jet ski. (small one person stand up)

    What other word would you use for wave runner?

    Just wait for a good Nor Easter and you should be OK. Take a look at SeaGoat's post about a gas tank rack and maybe that's all you'll need to get back... Ron
