37 Active Thunder cruise information:

496HOs: 2+ mpg
500EFIs: 2 mpg
525EFIs: 1.5mpg
700SCis: 1.5mpg as long as you stay out of the boost

The boat has an incredibly efficient hull. I have brought my boat up on plane with only one motor, with the other prop still dragging in the water; and it's able to run 30-32 mph.

I'm surprised this isn't easier to find on all boats.

Besides the money issue there is a bigger issue of range if you want to do any real trips.

I've never really tried to figure out my little pachanga....but If I hold it down for any length of time you can see the gas gauge move quickly(63 gallon tank)! Best I can figure is while playing...crusing and romping I burn at least 20 gallons per hour.
