Question Fuel Burn?

How much fuel do you burn?

I was using 40 to 75 gallons a weekend with a 28' with a modified 502. I never have figured out what it burns per hour.

I checked the fuel consumption on the AT the last time we were out. We put 7.2 hours on the boat and used 143 gallons of fuel. We were cruising most of the time with a few wide open runs.

I would be interested in what others experience is, but 20 gph for twin 500EFI's pushing a 10,000 lb boat seems very reasonable.

Thats all???? I will usually fill up on friday afternoon, before heading to the bridge or Portside. That lasts me until saturday afternoon, fill up again, and should be OK through sunday unless we run back to the bridge or the Husseys for lunch.

that is about 100-130 gallons a weekend, on single 500efi.

I think I get about 2-3 miles a gallon? But I really don't know.
