Default How much do you spend in GAS per season

Wanted to get a sample of how much everyone spends on GAS each boating season. Since I'm from Michigan, I only get to use from April to October.

In 2001, the total was $2200

Cool

About $750 w/ a single 200hp Merc Outboard, but then again who cares if your having fun and have all winter to pay off the gas bill.

Since the local lakes are small and I didn't put a lot of hours on it last season, I think I spent about 250.00 in fuel.
If I lived along the coast I'm sure I'd use a lot more.

I'm certainly over the 4K mark but gas costs me around 3.00 a gallon on the water last season.

Milord, where the heck are you buying guys on St. Clair? The most I paid on the water last year was $2.30, and that was only for a short while.

I usually fill up on the North Channel.

My bill would be about a $1000 more, but I take mgrs from work out for rides, and they always fill the tank up on the Company!!!
