6 minutes or so. Every bag is on a dedicated reversible pump.

Ramfill is crazy fast. On my 257 is roughly 30 seconds .... well under the posted times.

Here is update. Someone traded a 2017 24MXZ on a Ri257 so they have access to current hull, they also repeated centurion test with similar engine as malibu, as the MXZ has 575. Although you won't...

I have an evolution swim cover. It works fantastic, plus customer service is second to none. Really easy on and off. I have towed literally 1000's of miles without issue.

Another FI23 vote! Nothing matches the Centurions in waves right now. Careful option selection can easily get you just under your 100k target.

For someone like myself going from 1st gen 24MXZ to RI257, this would be dead on what i would want to see. That does not make this test deceptive, inaccurate, poorly designed, or misleading. ...

One more note on this, I do Wake the World every year. In 2016 we had to refuel early afternoon because the 24 MXZ was down to 12%, and I knew we would not be able to finish the day. So we put an...

The fuel burn in the video is 100% ACCURATE, but that is the usage underway, your average usage also has idle time at less than 1 GPH

My average in the MXZ's both my 2014 w/450 and 2015 w/PW2 and...

With a 450 at elevation likely a 2419 on the MXZ, I used to run 4100 RPM.

Exactly, take the data for what it is, and go from there. I have a 450hp RI257 now, and had a 572 24MXZ and a 450 24MXZ, these results actually match my experience EXTREMELY well.

Actually yes that data would be helpful too as I am sure there are still buyers for 2013 G23, 2015 Enzo, and 2018 24 MXZ. It would be fantastic to see this type of data on everything! NOT every...

I would say that #5 is a fair response. If you question the results that much, provide access to a current model, with YOUR ENGINE and PROP CHOICES!

Wedge position does play a huge roll, on the 1st gen 24 MXZ I found 3-5 To be sweet spot with PW2, any more and wave lip washed out any less and wave was too flat.

It's actually really accurate. I had a 2014 and 2015 24 MXZ. They both guzzled premium. 10+GPH average, so 18 underway not surprising.

My 257 uses 30-40% less fuel. I average roughly 7 GPH,...
