I am considering buying a Yamaha Venture Lite with the 80 hp 4-stroke but would like to know the expected fuel consumption.
I have done quite a bit of looking on websites but cannot find any facts on the fuel consumption for that machine.
Ski-Doo boasts about having the best fuel efficient engine with the V-800 rated at 30mi/gal (Can).
Yamaha does not make any claims other than to say it is a fuel efficient 4-stroke; so I’m wondering if they are trying to hide something.
Do you guys have any info to share?
Thanks for your email!
You’re in luck! We had the use of a Venture Lite last year in our PR fleet and recorded well over 20 mpg on numerous occassions.
The sled did tally 25 once – as far as I know. Having said this – the 80 HP Venture Lite cannot be compared with the Ski-Doo 4 stroke.
After riding the VL myself on a two day tour I would actually own one.
