I currently have a 17ft Bayliner with a 120 outboard. I am looking at an upgrade to a larger boat. Could someone reply with how much gas you typically use on a day of boarding with an inboard and a inboard/outboard. I know "if you have to ask then you can't afford it" but I'm trying to prepare for all of the costs before I take the plunge.

thanks

A sacked out wakesetter VLX blows through 35 gallons of gas with 4 people and 3 sets per person. I carry an extra 2 gallons on board to get home on fumes. We also often get more gas at the end of the day, if it is a long day.

I used about 23 gallons w/ 6 people and around 1,000 lbs. put in about 1/2 way through the day. My day was from around 7am to 2 or 3 i think. Elevation of around 1,000 feet. Oh, and pulled some crazy slalom skiers in the morning for a while...which eats gas quicker than unweighted boarding. This is on a '90 sport nautique w/ a 351 non fuel-injected engine.

roughly about 5 gallons per hour with 4peps and 1200 pounds.

we run about 5-7 gallons per hour depending on how much weith we have and how fast and far we go so it depends

Seven gallons an hour is a pretty good estimate for most carburated small block Fords. I would think the injected engines are doing better than that.

~6 gph on a heavily weighted and wedged wakesetter lxi with monsoon EFI engine.

used to ride behind an 18' I/O with a carbed 4 cyl and it burned almost as much gas with no weight.

There's no way, in my opinion, you can prepare for such costs. There's always, always something you were not prepared for. As far as gas goes, I don't mind how much it is because I draw the line with my boys and even lady friends when we're all on the lake: bring gas $ and beer and i'll bring my boat!

My 1999 Supra Launch will use about 2/3's of a 28 gallon tank in a full day of wakeboarding.
