Fuel Consumption Question - 55 Johnson

Rich MRich M Posts: 886 Officer

I just got a 2000 55 hp Johnson 2 stroke to put on a 17 CC (boat looks like a 17 Mako and weighs 800#).

Any guesses what kind of fuel economy it should provide?

    general rule of thumb for 2-stroke of that is burn of about 1 gallon for every 10hp or 5.5 gph.
