I have 100 gallon in my cobra 28.
Since I have diesel engine I run very very long before I have to think about refueling.....

I had a 24' Condor with a 100ish gallon tank. It was a prefect match for the single small block. Our 22' Scarab only had 50 gallons and a 350 (too small). My 26' Sutphen has a 100ish gallon tank too, and a pair of 350 Mags. I would prefer another 25-50 gallons for the long distance, and rough water runs.

80 gal. in my 280 Velocity. Not enough when you do a long Poker Run like Jacksonville with a Blower motor.
