X2 fuel consumption

Hey gang, does anyone know approx how many gallons we use per hour wake-boarding?
Just roughly.

I know I can fuel it up, use and then re fuel it and measure.
But I always forget!

I've been doing 15 minutes set for friends and want to know how much they need to chip in for fuel.

Thank.

7-10 gph depends on number of occupants, ballast and number of times you have to get on plane

If you need to tell them, try some different friends.......


No offense, only had a handful ever want to chip in.


Does anyone know how much it is to replace the clutch in my Gallardo, gauge is reading 1/4 left?

I have the same issue with my Murcielago -

As for chipping in, I never ask, as my friends are never short of good food and beer. And with beer we drink, gas is cheaper!

And TX.X.30 - very jealous of you. I'm a UT alum and native Texan living in Chicago. I miss the weather for boating longer in the season.

6-8 IMO. That's $4 per :15 at current pricing.

We burned through 5-6 gallons an hour surfing on our x2 with a MCX. It wouldn't surprise me if wakeboarding was similar or even a bit more.

Sounds like a problem I read in an earlier thread. His solution was to buy each friend a 5gallon gas can and have them bring it full when they come to ride.
