At wide open throttle an outboard will burn 1 Gph +/- 10% for every 10 horsepower

Does this make Sense ? for 2 and 4 Strokes ?

75 lbs / 6.2 lbs per gallon = 12 gallons

Egret 16 has a 41 gallon fuel tank,
at 55 mph that gives you a range of about 190 miles
Throttle back to cruising speed and you'll probably get 250 mile range.

I don't see a problem Dave... ;)
