    Hi everybody,

    I will soon receiving my new Craz surf max edition with the 6.2l raptor 400, I'm curious about the fuel consumption.
    can you give me some data??

    Too late now. In any case it all depends on how much ballast you're using and what speed you're running. Just now it better than the older boats but about as far away from a Prius that you can get.

    I run around 5 gph with over 4k of ballast plus crew. That number drops a bit depending on crew size and how many beginners are on the boat. The stop/start with that kind of weight is what really gulps down the fuel.

    That consumption isn't too fare off my 345 Surf engine. We average 4-5gph when surfing and cruising at 22 and below.

    The older 325 Assault was a gas drinker at 7gph lol

    I don't know why but this thread cracks me up! It's a 6.2L V8....not a V6 with stop-start and cylinder deactivation. If you can afford a toy like this, mpg should be an afterthought ....get your buddies to throw you some gas money once in awhile. LOL

    I pay $1.08/liter or $4.15/gallon at the fuel station but it can be as high as $6.50/gallon on the lake. If the boat is that much harder on fuel I might go with a big tidy tank and pump set up in the truck box to off set the cost.
    I agree with you though, you gotta pay, to play

    I'm was just curious, because my old engines burn a lot off fuel under heavy load and because the fuel in Holland isn't cheap.
    Like $1,72 per liter.
    I don't mind to pay for the fun, but my customers will

    Highly recommend a wheeled 15 gal gas can with hose and pumphandle. I pay $1.89/gallon at the costco for the 87 octane (10 gal) and $2.05/gal for the 93 (5 gal) Math that out and you get 15 gal of 89 octane for $1.95/gal. Stop on the way home from work or as you can to stay topped off and all is well.

    Yay cheap USA gas!

    Same gas consumption as my lightly loaded DD with a 310 hp engine with the carburetor (now a novelty item). It is important to get a good guess on fuel consumption because you can be more accurate than the gas gauge with knowing the approximate consumption along with the hours used. Sad that the gas gauges haven't changed over the years.
