    How much speed will a full tank cost ya?

    Just wondering what the general opinion is. How many MPH do you think a full tank of gas will cost a GPR? I'm thinking 3-4mph but maybe I'm just wishfull thinking.

    Huh, I never GPS'd the issue, but I would've thought it'd be more than that.

    km

    all depends on the set-up, the boat, the mods, the cc's, if your a fat-ass, ect....

    1mph is common.
