I have a 19ft aluminum (real quiet) can with a 115 Yamaha SHO

What gas mpg would you guesstimate me getting?

Addendum - All down hill. No up hill driving.

I forgot to ask, are you hauling any of the 407 crew?

I don’t know. I have never checked my mpg. I just fill it up, then run full throttle until I’m at 1/3 of a tank according to the lying gas gauge. Rinse and repeat.

A 19' can ? was it full of beer? Like this?
And does it have a square nose or V-hull?

I just checked, and the mpg of a fully loaded barge is .2 mpg, or double that of a ranger bass boat. You can work the math based on weight and displacement from there.

My guess would be 7-8 mpg. My Optimax pushing a 17.5 ft bass boat gets 6-7. Those 4 stroke are seriously fuel efficient. All this is a pure guess.

I don't recall what boat you have, but here is the Yamaha Performance Bulletin on a Center Console Xpress with the 115 SHO. Your mileage will be very similar

You get 115. That’s why it’s a 115.
