    1st Season Fuel Consumption.

    With the first season in the books in Michigan with the 2021 FX SVHO Limited I'm showing 192.7 Gallons Used on 42.7 Engine Hours.

    I know there are a lot of variables and the data from the PWC is not the most accurate but how does that consumption sound...average?

    FYI...I used 93 octane from Costco. Most stations around me have either 89 or 93.

    You're driving in granny mode . On my supercharged Yamahas I burned about 6 gal/hr.

    I don’t keep track of how much fuel I buy but I do know that my GP 1800 does 5-5.5 MPG a with my normal riding. When I do get out I usually run anywhere from 50-150 miles a day.

    Yeah I haven’t logged total consumption but I also was averaging about 5-5.5 mpg from dash computer, I reset before each ride to follow tank to make sure I’m not actually on empty

    I have no math to back this up aside from 5-gallon red can refills, but I think around 6 gallons per hour.
    I will report my engine hours and gallons used when I am back in FL and check the dash. I never reset the trip meter. I do have some no wake zones I deal with. Other than that, usually riding at 6K RPM.

    I don't keep track of fuel used either but I do try and check my MPG just cause I am curious comparied to my boat.

    My boat I added larger trim tabs, and 250 lbs of chain to the bow and gained 0.2mpg... and it was so excited haha 0.7 mpg to 0.9mpg is a huge gain haha.

    Ski was averaging 5.3 with blower set up and 5.5 with the turbo this year. Did a 66mile ride the other week and then refilled next outing. 12 gallons on the dot.

    Here’s todays data, rode 112 miles on dash (which the first stop was within .3 miles of google). Fuel used was 18.5 gal, at a rate of 5.9 mpg on dash. Was riding 45-55 mph for most of cruising, a few wot pulls.

    how big is the tank? Mine is only 18.5 and I feel that's a lot for a ski, the new FX hold more?

    No, it’s the gp in my signature, we stopped and got fuel at a marina. (Yikes on price!). Yes, it’s the same tank, only 18.5 gallons
