Land, with two 140 gallon tanks the owner always comes out and thanks me and will block traffic, usually buys me a cold drink as well

Land, Michigan has a 35 cents per gallon marine tax...

I remember when I used to fill my Donzi the pump would always shut off at $60 and I would have to restart it again.

I trailer mine , so it's a no brainer. The ony time I buy gas on the water is if I don't have enough to get home , which happened to me about three weeks ago and paid $2.69 for 89 octane only after I left a place that wanted $2.98 , for what , I don't know and wasn't even going to find out .

You will see my trailer at the Shell super pump most Sunday mornings. Have had two bad experiences with water in the gas at Marine pumps over the years. Not going to buy out there unless I have to.

I buy land gas only ,unless I am running out on the water .

When My Hustler is in the slip and it needs gas I made up a 35 gall plastic drum with a pick up in the bottom and a Holley Blue fuel pump with a cord w/ alligator clips for the battery . I just fill it up the drum at the gas station slide it out of the truck and dolly it down to the boat. It works real good !!

I only buy BP and Chevron . I have found that Chevron usually has a better specific gravity.

I trailer so exclusively land. Cheaper and I never quite trust unknown marinas.

Land, much cheaper than the marina, where most of the time around here they sell 93 and get the price they want
