100 gallons per weekend at $3.00/ gal (after discount), 24 weekends per year, total: $7,200 per season. Wow! I never added it up before, I am glad Texas has a winter season so I can save up for next year!

Boat didn't run much this year due to a LOOOONG time in sorting out the engines, but normal is $400 per month for the boat during the (oh too short) summer, and $500 a month for the cars year round. Guess we do our part for W's oil friends

Hang Time 27 - Post more pics of the Corvette, and where in Annapolis area are you? We're in Arnold, members of Masdon Dixon NCRS and Corvette Annapolis NCCC. Wife has two vettes, I have about 5/8 of a C-2 so far.

Why would you want to know what you spend?? I personally wouldn't want to know what I spend a year for any of my boating expenses? If I added it all up I would realize how stupid I really am. What if our wives read this post and they saw what we really spent?? I bet the amounts we tell them are a LOT less then everyone has listed here. I have 2 120 gal tanks and if you ask my wife, we never spend more then $40 to go boating!

39 Sutphen with a pair of 850's usually count on $200-300 per day just running around the bay locally. Cruising at 50-55 mph will eat 45-50 gal per hour. Thankfully i can run on 92 octane
