If I'm on a lake doing water sports, I'll typically get a 3-day weekend out of a tank of fuel. If I'm out fishing in saltwater, it depends on the weather and wave conditions. A typical fishing trip is 20-30 nm. I get about 150 miles out of a tank. I actually calculated the real milage last season on it going between Everett, WA, and LaConner, WA (approximately 40 miles). The sea state was flat and I was doing cruising speed the entire way (35mph). I saw 3.6mpg.
Being that there aren't a lot of fuel stations on the water, it is really nice to have the bigger tank. Though it's also nice to have a trailerable boat that I can haul up to Chevron because gas at the dock is way more expensive!
