[QUOTE=Dock Holiday]Rob, those are crazy numbers.

I like to play with the scan tool also and I'm glad I don't see that kind of consumption!

Hey Strip, they're set up for pump gas, but I run 100 any time I can get it just to be safe...

Hey Jr.

Your Sutphen burns about 65 gph per side 454's at 5800 not as efficient as a larger boat with a twin step bottom.

the 50v nortech with 3 -880hp blower motors drank 400 gallons in the 164mile trip from miami to key west with about 2o gallons to spare we were averaging 9omph when we were running with short bursted to 104mph, but it was fun and worth it.
