First and foremost I would like to thank all the guys who chimed in on my key west thread.
My next question is approximately how much fuel does a 2000 yamaha 150 two stroke burn. There is a specific reason I am asking this. I found a 2000 Key West 2020 w/a that has the 2stroke 150.
The new one has the 4. The 2000 is half the price and in excellent condition. So, my decision now is will the fuel cost of the 2 stroke be so much higher that it would make more sense for me to just buy the new one. The dealer with the new one says guys are getting 3gal per hour at cruising speed with the new 4 stroke and the dealer with the used boat says the 2 stroke burns about 22gal. per hour at cruising speed. that seems kinda high. I was always under the impression that on average according to the formula alot of people use a 150 would burn approximately 15 gph at wide open throttle. I also realize there are alot of variables to consider like weight and prop pitch and all. I am really trying to make this purchase and educated one so sorry for being so long winded.
