I figure my old jet at 2.5-3.0 mpg. Cruise at maybe 3300 rpm, 32 mph
And my 90 hp Johnson at maybe 4-5 mpg. Cruise at 3600 rpm, 30 mph. The bimini on that is like a parachute though.
My Boat was a 22' Stoker/Elim ModVP tunnel bottom with carbon Kevlar layup
Prop was a labbed Merc Bravo1 26 pitch four blade and speed was around 30mph to get 8mpg with a light load of bodies and gear
One thing no one mentioned is the cost of 2 stroke oil that is burned that adds into the equation
