One question, does anyone have fuel burn numbers for my engine combo?
I would love to know what I'm burn at 500 rpm increments.
I look forward to all of the great advice on this forum!

I ended up buying the top of the line FloScan, and also installed the Bennet trim-dicators.
Let me tell, just a slight change in trim and rpm made a HUGE difference in fuel consumption.
Fuel consumption will go down the older the boat gets. Not because of age, but because we tend to store much more stuff on the boat all the time. Think of the weight of everything non-stock on your boat.
Then add in electronics, spare get-home parts and tools, all the water and fuel in the tanks, the waste in the waste tank, dishes, silverware, lines, bumpers, PFDs, food, towels, pillows, and on and on.
