I'm looking to go on a boating trip and need an idea of my fuel range.

I have a Supra 24SSV with a 340hp motor, 52 gallon tank and a 14X18 prop (although I could switch out my prop with a 13x17).

What's an approximate mpg and fuel range I can expect?

I would say 6-8 gallons per hour of boating.

You might get 2.5 MPG at 3000-3500 RPM. Much less at high speed and while wakeboarding. Less if the boat is loaded. That's just based on averages for that size of inboard. An owner might give you their numbers.

what kind of weight are you running?

When I'm riding I run with about 2,600-3k lbs of balast depending on whether I'm boarding or surfing, but I just want to know the fuel range fairly empty and then I can decide how much I will ride based on distance between fuel stops.
