do all the same boat models (eg the prostar 197)come with the same trasmition ratio, (1.26 to 1 trans)?what is the powerslot upgrade and does it have a difference in consumption?
thanks because of the language barrier i do not understand everything!

Powerslot 1:26 to1
Standard 1:1

Slot is designed more for higher end slalom, does burn more fuel
If you are into the 32 off and more range I would consider a slot to be
an advantage for you

i think i got it now!i am writing you from greece.i have a water sports center here in an island and i just sold my 1998 190skier. i am in the market to get another used ski boat (not with the slot upgrade cause i mainly pull beginners), i was looking for the 190 but they are not too many of them, so i am looking for the 197 i (the only difference is the open bow and more weight correct?plus i like the mini tower!). since you are a dealer do you know if it is easy to put the european package in a used boat?!also i have a 07 X2 and i was wondering if i get a 197 with the MC trailer can i swap trailers and put on the X2, will it fit, can the single axle hold the X2 weight?
do you know in normal use (rpm average around 2500-2800)which engine is the most economic one the rtp1 or the mcx. i do around 500 hrs in saltwater in 3 months so fuel economy is very important!
sorry for all the questions but you seem to know the ski boat industry, while here its the opposite!
thank you heaps

Sorry for the of topic turn here but we will ALL be worried about fuel consumption in our boats, vehicles, etc unless we the people take charge of our country!! This man is paying more than US $5 a gallon in Greece.

How does the wake compare between the slot and the 1:1 in the ProStar 197s?

The price of fuel is the same.

It is the taxes that are added to the fuel price, not the fuel itself
