im not worried about the not making the trip back and forth. I would be more worried about getting a ticket in the no wake zone. Thats where I got pulled over for going to fast at idle last year. Luckly the cop was pretty decent

That's going to be a big challenge for you and Tony.
From what I've seen MFI likes to idle at 2000 rpm. What gears do you guys run ?

I got stopped for going through the no wake zone in 2nd gear and had to drop down to 1st which is real slow. I run 37% gears and idle at 1000 rpm.

I boat at Hardy almost every weekend and go from Brower to party cove to the dam to the sandbar and back to Brower. Takes 14 - 15 gallons to make that loop if I don't hammer on it and cruise at about 40 mph / 3000 rpm.
That's about 2 mpg which I didn't think was too bad.
If I thrash it then it's like the coneheads used to say,
"Let us consume mass quantities" :)

I'm just making new fuel lines from the tanks to the pump so I can run E 85 this year.

Whats the reason for fuel line change? Braided lines will work fine. My carbs are getting sent out next week for the conversion to E85.

All you have to do is change a pill.
