can you tell me what is your fuel x-star consommation per hour maybe in gallon or in dollar, if you ride with the stock ballast system full ?? and maybe 3 pers in the boat, because i am not sure that the dealer tell the truth.

I don't think it's anybody's business how often per hour that I consummate with my X-Star. But I will admit, I like a full ballast.

depends on your engine rpm, motor and many other factors. guessing 5-8 gallons an hour.

you can always get an annullment if she doesn't satisfy you.

I would agree with thomas. My X-Star does not use much more gas then my old 79 Nautique.

I hope that your not worried about gas consumption. All I know is between filling up the Tahoe to get the boat to the lake and the filling up the boat you can add another $200/month on the price of owning a boat

what did the dealer tell you? 2gph? my old 302 2 barrel would run all day on 10 bucks, but fuel was cheaper then. buy a couple 5 gallon jugs and keep them in the back of your truck. that's what we do. no marina crappy fuel or crappy prices.

driving a boat fully laden is like driving your big v-8 down the interstate at 80-90/3000rpm or so loaded. i figured 13-14-15 miles to the gallon at that load. 90 divided by 15 = 6 gph or close to it.

i need a spler checr also. i can't spell either. it was funny, don't take it rong.

I budget $CDN 100/day for boat fuel, based on the mix of skiing, wakeboarding, cruising that we do. Everybody uses their boat differently , so your budget will be different. Pushing a boat through the water uses a lot of energy -- if you're *really* worried about fuel consumption, don't buy a wakeboarding boat -- they use gas!

I agree, if your concerned about fuel costs you may want to reconsider. In any event, my 00 X-Star with 330 HP engine 29 gallon tank fully weighted, ~2000+ lbs ballast would run about +/- 5-6 hours... My 03 X-Star 350hp w/ +/-2800 lbs ballast and much larger tank, will easily go the whole day.. They love the go go juice!!
