    Gas per hour on 230 vs 300

    We are looking at getting the 300 or the 230. Gas is a big deal for us though because we do alot of cruising. I saw this picture and started thinking I need to compare Apple's to apples. Does seadoo list a gph or something like that so i can see if the 230 is as gas hungry as a 300 is?

    I don't own any of the newer Seadoo's, but I have several friends with the 300 models. We usually cruise around 5500-6000 Rpm's with occasional wide open runs. They can usually get 70 miles on 15.9 gallons, several times they have ran it dry with 70-75 miles to completely empty. The guys in the group with the 230 don't seem to be doing much better running at the same pace. I can tell you my FZR will get around 5-5.2 mpg and my wife's Kawi 310R around 4-4.2 mpg for what it's worth.

    I own a 15 PX 260 and 18 RX 300. With my wife on the PX,me on the RX and if we ride like we had brains the fuel mileage is about the same. Now if you're in the throttle hard the 300 will suck it down. Just saying

    We do alot of cruising as well. In our group we have 155s, the new 230 (me for instance), a couple of 260s and 300s.

    At cruising speeds, they all consume about the same. Its when you play with the throttle that consumption differs. I mean who does not like to play with the power their machine has to offer... Generally at the end of a ride, I tend to have 1 bar less than the 155 and one more than the 300. Generally. The beauty of the 230 is that it runs on regular gas.

    I just did a run down the lake with my 300. None stop cruise by myself. I was in eco mode the whole time. I did 80miles and was on the buzzer and would guess a little over a gallon left in the tank. Mile marker 56 to 16 and back to 56.

    Rode yesterday with some friends with the Sea-Doo 230 & 300. We cruised most of 57 miles around 5,500-6k we stopped for food and fuel. This is what each ski used at 57 miles into the ride.

    18 Sea-Doo RXT 230 12.2 gallons (Stephanie was out front most of the ride)
    17 Sea-Doo GTR 230 11 gallons
    18 Sea-Doo RXP-X 300 12.5 gallons

    Like most have said already not a big difference on the 300 if your not in throttle which is hard not to be

    I took the dogs out on the lake with me yesterday. Under 30-35mph the whole time. Lots of no-wake so my mileage wont matter to you guys, but it's amazing what saying out of boost does!
