    That said, if I can get it I will take it with the 945.
    For your 3 hour session, are you surfing the whole time? Even the 4 gph is pretty good still for surfing.

    Donít the Malibu/Axis get closer to 7gph?

    Yeah, like I said I really donít keep track all that great. Mostly because Iím hardly filling up. When itís me and a buddy and straight wakeboarding/surfing itís probably 4-6 an hour.

    I also have 4 under 10 year old kids....so 2 hours out on an evening might involve 1 hour under load at best. So my engine hours involve lots of idling and my numbers are likely highly skewed.
