Wow. I don't like to think about the numbers. makes me question if it's worth it sometimes.

I haven't filled the 100 gallon tank in the baja yet, usually throw a couple hundred at it each time and try not to think about it.

I filled the tank in my jetboat last Friday up in MD - 37 gallons- took 25+ gallons, was like filling up the truck ($80-$90) -not too bad.

The Seadoo fill us up with a 5 gallon container from the garage, so that one doesn't even count.

It wasn't me, but I think Bob the builder is in the lead. The poker run this weekend here...

400 gallons gas-Predator 1,
400 gallons diesel-Predator 2,

One weekend, 2 empty boats...

You do the math.

Having 2 50' Nortechs on one poker run...priceless!

OK.

400 x $4/gal = $1600

400 x $4.30/gal = $1720

Total: $3320
