I estimate it's less than $1500 but I really have no idea. 50 hours on a 7.4 MPI with most of the time at about 3500 RPM's. It didn't seem too bad at the time so I really don't care.

I put about 100hrs a summer on a 520inch single in a 26 Scarab. The boat has a 94gal. tank. Just put the debit card in and fill it up. Don't look at the receipt Just give it to my better half and let her figure if there is any money left for beer!

Never kept a running total before, but I filled up the new tank last weekend and it cost $130. At least it lasted all weekend. Probably do a weekend per month, that's 12 times $130. Plus a couple of full weeks each year, so add another couple of tanks, that's an additional $260. So that's what, $1,820 per year before the Whipples go on. Then the Excursion gets 10 to 11 mpg, and its 500 miles round trip to Havasu, times what per gallon - $1.30? Times maybe 14 trips per year - another $1,000? Call it $3,000 per year for gas?

Damn, why are we doing this - that wasn't any fun!

Based on the poll, seems like most everyone buys $4000 or less each year. Now I can say..."Everyone else spends just as much gas as we do honey!" We are Normal boaters!
