My cruiser made my old cat look economical.
0.86 mpg on the cruiser. And the gen burns ful even when it's standing still!
Twin 525SCs got over 1 mpg in the cat.

Chuck, you could pick up another 1 mpg by losing that bimini!

As far as mine, I really don't know, and I don't want to know, especially because I have to run 93 octane in it.

seems to me that other things equal, 2 stroke outboards are more gas hogs than performance inboards
