EXCELLENT advise. You should have Vesel Assist or SeaTow if you are running in the ocean

Well the spec's of the boat say that it holds 170 gal and when i ran out each tank only took 70 so it looks like there is an extra 15 gal in each tank.

I think someone just overestimated the size of the tank. You probably only have 70 gallon tanks. ......

I burned 72 gallons from Marina Del Rey to Avalon with twin 496 HOs in my 35 Lightning. That was pretty much at better than 60 MPH both ways.
