Default Boat Gas Mileage

Does anybody know if there is a web site for boat gas mileage. I tried searching Powerboat's site but it only went back 2 years on their boats tests.

Powerboat Mag use to have a lot of tests with gas mileage. They really should test all of them now a days. You can see gas mileage figures on boattest.com, but you won't find many performance boats there. It will give you a rough idea of mileage vs. number of engine and length.

most Fountains 99 and up get 1-1.2 mpg unless you get into big power even then if the boat runs 105-120(mph) GPH is @ 110-120 so still close to the low Number the fishing boats w/verado power are around 1.4-1.5
