It should burn .75lbs of fuel per hour per 10hp (per Brett ;) ):

40hp * .75lbs/hp = 30lbs / 6.2lbs/gal = 4.8gal/hour

Now with my Tohatsu 40TLDI the book says 4gal/hour.

Sounds like 5 GPH to me

So to run "all Day" we are talking 40 Gallons of fuel ... Interesting ...

What does that BEAST Weigh ?

Like 275 or so ...

Thanks Brett, got a little hp happy. ;)

Dave - My TLDI weighs in at 215lbs with a long shaft, remote, tilt & trim, 3 cylinders, and did I mention fuel injection? :cool:
