You guys think you're taking it up the a$$??
I run C16 in the Benz boat. I am on VP's lowest price level. I have been paying $10.78 per gallon for the last 18 months. The price has not gone up with the price of regular fuel. I was actually able to start justifying the price of $10.78 since others are paying $5.00 at the dock for 93. I was informed this week C16 is finally going up. It is going to end up around $14.70 per gallon!!!! The boat is set up with a dual mode ecu. I can run the boat at 1200 HP using 93 octane or at 1550 with C16. We did some calculations. At cruise speed with the ECU set at 1550 it burns 2 1/2 Gallons per mile. That is not 2 1/2 miles per gallon either!!!!

I posted this on another thread, but Il post it again.

I have a simple rule. If I invite you on my boat then you arent paying for fuel or dockage. This is normally a back and forth deal between my other boating friends along with a few other non boating friends who are always there when I need them.

Then there are the friends who invite themselves, these are the acquaintances that I would normally never invite to go boating. I have no problem pulling into a gas station and telling them to pay up or we go home.

It bugs me when jealous folks take cheap shots. Its like the bullchit "I wouldn't have that house/boat/car even if I had the money". Inside, I think that we would all like to. Knowing the cost of running such a boat makes me appreciate them that much more.

Are you bringing it up to the Shootout this year? We went to the Bristol night race last year, so we missed seeing your boat. I know that circumstances did not allow you to come up, but maybe this year!
