My Skater with four 2.5 OS's ..not so good. They average between .75 and 1 gallon per mile per motor (maybe a bit better.) running it hard. Last short trip from Boca inlet to Miami for lunch and back, fuel cost was just under 800.00. Can't wait for the 300xs's

60 gallons just cruising around the lake, 100 to 125 on poker runs. Who said singles were good on gas?

About 100 gallons per hour. I usually drop about $2500 a week end.

15-20. We do a lot of anchoring/partying. Maybe 30-35 for a poker run.
