    RXT 215hp cruise speed

    I'm wondering what is your average cruising speed on saltwater? I just got done with my 10hr service and I have yet to find the sweet spot for cruising. My '08 RXT 215 is doing about 1 tick mark per hour going at 30mpg. I'm still waiting for my gps so I can accurately measure distance to gas ratio.

    I could be wrong here, but I believe the maximum fuel mileage is when you're just barely planed off.

    I can't stand cruising slower than 5000rpm.

    I get the best mileage running at 45mph-50mph. I can go 80+ miles on a tank. We measure our best running using mileage instead of hours cause we all have gps's.

    I agree with Larry. best mileage is between 5,000 - 6,000 rpm before heavy boost kicks in.
