Default Cost of first fill up

Well filled boat before the first launch
First time I was happy my fuel guages were wrong thought both tanks were empty.
Only pumped in 140 gal @ 3.50 per so I was at $490
thought I was looking at 170+ gal by the fuel gauges

Come on summer!!!!!!!!!!!

I wonder if you can locate a farmer and split the non-hwy gas they use in their tractors.....non-hwy tax that is.

I saw the boat in the driveway as we went by on the poontoon on Sunday. You selling that thing???

By the way I have filled the pontoon up 4 times this year. $50-$60 a crack. I think it sucks more gas/ hour than the 454 on the scarab.

Does not have to be business. I send my rec. for boat gas in every year and get a $0.20/gal rebate. You just send photocopied rec. with boat written on them with your state paperwork.
