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

Does this make Sense ? for 2 and 4 Strokes ?

Probably be OK if you had a couple of passengers Kicking in

But I guess if you have a 30 K boat $120.00 In fuel should not be an issue LOL

I'm just used to running the smaller boat / Motor Usually 3 Gallons in the Gheenoe for a 2.5 Hr run ...
