50-54 GPH @ WOT which is 5500-5900 @ 69-72MPH.
30ish GPH @ 4100-4300 @ 45ish or 50ish MPH- (I forgot..)
Mark, this weekend went you are out on the water make a mental note of what GPH and MPG you are running at a few rpms...like 3800/4000/4500 and mph at each rpm.

If you are burning 30ish GPH at 4000ishrpm you are burning the same as my triple set up! I burn 32GPH at 4000rpm going 47mph getting 1.4mpg...sometimes 1.5 depending on load and water conditions. If I back it down to 42mph at 3700rpm I get 27gph and a soild 1.5mpg.

Check yours out and let us know. THANKS! Mike

Also if anyone is looking to sell a 30-32 concept w/trailer, I'm interested. Trade for my Baja or what not.

Mike, Ran a 36 with 300xs the other weekend. Looked at GPH only when I was cruising. 4000RPM, 20GPH(combined) at 44 MPH. Boat had @ 6 hours on it at that point. WOT - 67.5 MPH but did not play with it much. Has bravo 4 24's.

Interesting to note the GPH of these boats.

So for my boat (gas guzzler) I burn 45 gallons an hour @ 3600 rpms and run 60 mph. 240 mile trip takes me 4 hrs and I burn 180 gallons. Same trip with FeverMike's figures will take 5.1 hrs and burns 17 gallons less fuel.

So for an extra $60 or so I get there an hour earlier! But, I spend a heluva lot more in maintenance... but in the end the fuel is roughly to the same.

I know, I know....just bustin balls. Just kiddin fellas....

I love the 36 Concept, but the seating position at the helm is not the greatest. You almost have to stand up to drive. It doesn't have any place for your feet or support under your legs. The seating in the Donzi is much better. I wish Concept would put an angle on the console and better bolsters. I don't own either, but have been looking very hard.
