Thread: MPG on a boat?

  1. #1

    MPG on a boat?

    I have always wanted a jet boat & after a week vacation with my kawasaki ultra 150 & some really crappy mpg I was wondering how these boats are on fuel? Anyone have a idea what they get on their boat?

    I seemed to get 3.2-3.8 mpg on my stock jetski which will soon be 10 years old.

    The Super Charged Speedster 150 gets 4.6 MPG and my 06 Sea Doo Sportster 155 HP model is getting 5.5 miles per gallon

    My Sportster has a 21 Gallon Tank

    Worry about your cars mpg's. Your boat is an escape!!

    I do not worry about my cars mpg much, it get's about 34 mpg highway & has over 300 ft lb of torque.

    When I do a few mods to my ski it's going to get worse, just tossing the idea around about one of these boats

    Wow! What are you driving?? 1 of my cars gets about that mpg and its an '08 Corolla. I'm guessing it gets about 2 ft lb of torque! Overall, gas sucks no matter what you drive!!

    The way I see it is, it run me about $100 in gas for 3-4 hours. So a full tank a 7-8 hour day.

    Gas

    I put 40.00 every two weeks. I always keep it full never no when you are going to have a long weekend. I mostly do island hopping though.
