Anyways, he asked approx. how much fuel is burned in the run to Bimini and Back to Miami?? And I didnt really have an answer as I do not have the slightest clue as to what kinda of MPG these motors see at near WOT. I Guesstimated somewhere in the 150-200 gallon range for the run...

Am I anywhere near close???

Like I said, kind of an off the wall topic, kinda would like to

Thanks for any replys.

PS. Sorry to hear about the bad luck Gino, that was still one hell of a run...

You are correct.
The 50' Mystic with Turbine Marine Inc Power burned 185 gal of Jet A.
The boat was not working hard at it cruise speeds 150-180 Mph.

Hope this is what you where looking for.
