    Poker Run last weekend.....200 gallons was just under $1,000 in one weekend. Usually it will last 3-5 trips when just taking the kids out to the beach.

    WOW - This thread makes me feel great.

    I have burned $1,806 so far this summer. I use the boat every weekend although the major raft up spot is probably 100-200 yards from my pier.

    Plus the 1806 includes a poker run where I burned 112 gallons....

    Spent less then $400 for the last 3 years so far!!
    Well then again the boat sat for two years and i have put in $380 so far this year
    Had three trips to the water, one lake run and twice to the river. However July 4th only idled to the campsite and never hit 60 on Sunday. and that was only for about .5 mile as the dogs did not like it
    However another $200 in the truck to 'get' to the water
    This Cat is trying to keep up with the Big Dogs

    300 gallon capacity @ $4.50/gal = $1350.00 to fill it up = NOT VERY LONG. I can burn thru it in a weekend or poker run. We have slowed our long distance destinations down quite a bit so now it will last several weeks if we boat on the conservative side.

    I've been going through $350+ a weekend, so it gets me about 3 weekends....I've been a little trigger happy though being that I just got the boat...been running it all over the place and giving poeple rides (speed runs). I think that is all going to have to change, I can't keep spending that kind of money on gas.....I think there are going to be more tie ups in my future.

    In my past boats it would be about 2 days at easy cruise and rafting or one day at a poker run. Flow meters on my last Fountain showed 130/gal hr at WOT ouch!
