On average 7-8 hour day, some WOT to and from my favorite islands and sandbars, maybe some towing. Roughly 25-30 gallons. That's with twin 4 cylinders. WOT is 10000RPM!

Is gas @ the marina always approx 1.00 more than inland? In South LA, i think regular is right at 3.00, super is 3.34. I think, I drive a diesel truck. Diesel is 2.76.

At those marina prices, it is almost worth trailering to fill up. But i guess if you can afford a boat in the 100k &> range, you shouldn't be worried about filling it up.
