    AZ n00b

    Good Afternoon,
    Back in February Girl friend and I picked up a 2004 SeaDoo GTI LE-RFI 115hr and only 937miles.
    has only been on the water 3x the last 3-4yr

    So on our 1st lake trip it was a bust ski wouldn’t run well and maxed at 3500RPM
    determined it was a fouled plug, swapped out and hit the lake a few weeks later, another fouled plug but had extras, swapped and it ran great, maxed about 48mph per GPS.
    But once out of water noticed a lot of oil dripping out of drain plugs only to discover there was 2stroke oil all over the hull.
    few weeks later pull oil tank find 2 cracks and the seam starting to come apart, some JB Weld epoxy (2coats after a few hours of cure time) put tank back in hit the lake but only minimal oil (low oil light was on,but had enough in it) it did good no leaks.
    Today top off oil hit water and after a few run low oil light check and 🤬 a hull full of oil and oil leaking from seam.
    So I’m guessing it’s time to get a one piece tank and / or just bypass it all together and start premixing?
    And I’ve also noticed our ski doesn’t smoke like other skis do now I’m sure its probably due to their premix ratio but shouldn’t we be seeing something?

    Thougts suggestions appreciated 😁👍🏻

    Welcome to the site.

    Pretty common for the SeaDoo oil tanks to leak.

    You cannot go pre-mix on a RFI machine. Need to replace the tank.

    Just my luck haha
    What about the “smoking”
    Should I be seeing more or is this the way it is?

    The fuel injected skis are more efficient. At idle speeds your ratio is only like 100:1.

    You should see some some, but not lots, like older skis.

    Make sure your oil lines are good. SeaDoos are known for cracking/leaking.

    Ordered new tank & hose just gonna replace them all so there’s no worries.
    Any known way to test the oil injection to make sure it’s working?

    You should download the manual for your ski and start reading up on it to get familiar with all of the systems and subsystems that your particular model has.
