"check Yamaha Outboard Performance Bullitins for your specific boat/motor fuel/performance charts showing MPH,GPH,MPG,at different RPM's. at full throttle a large, well-tuned motor can really suck the fuel, best efficiency usually on plane in the 3500RPM range. Good Luck!http://www.marineengine.com/discus/clipart/happy.gif"
