140 (2- 70 gallon tanks) in my 28
My 242 had a 100 gallon tank

Both boats twin SBC powered- I have run the 28 footer 3 weekends before up and down the Mississippi River without fueling......

I have looked at this for a few years and it seems that the tanks are big enough to go about 2 1/2 hours at WOT. If you know your GPH flow requirement and times 2.5 you will see that it is very close to what the manufacture sizes your fuel capicity.

100 gallon tank in my 24 Outlaw. I can go across Lake Michigan and back on one tank at cruising speeds. I don't (well, most of the time my boat is broken it seems ) for safety's sake, but I could if I had to. I like my big tank/small boat. Full tank doesn't seem to affect the ride much either.

I noticed that Ragtop 409 only has 50 in his 23 Nova.

My 21 Nova single 350 has an 80. Cruise all summer.

My 26 foot twin has a 120.
