    This is a link to a YouTube video about the Q27 with twin 300's.


    (if the link doesn't work, just search for Bennington Q27 on YouTube)

    I did a screen print of the GPH.
    At top speed of 58 mph, she 'sips' 46.3 gallons per hour!
    I guess if you can't afford the gas, don't buy the boat!!!!

    If you can buy the boat you can buy the gas......

    Wow....expensive fun. Ironically, I just filled up yesterday my 2013 22SLX tritoon with Yamaha F115-LA after 2 days of 8-15 mph easy cruising on our Willamette River that flows through the center of Portland, Oregon. 6-7 hours total and no aggressive power runs as we had 2 small grandkids and 4 of us "plus size" adults and 3/4 tank and bimini up.......it only took 7.5 gallons to fill up!!!! (Clicked nozzle twice to make sure) I cannot believe how frugal this fuel injected engine is. It still does ok if you run it hard pulling toys or wakeboarder, would love more power, butttttt.....no way could you get that kind of economy with a 200hp engine. The 115 is max rated on factory label with 11 max occupants.

    That is some good economy for sure. There are always trade-offs!

    To each, his own but not for me. And anyway, here in Michigan we have a 50 MPH speed limit on inland lakes.

    I choke every time I fill up my 56 gallon tank even when only half empty. I cannot imagine running two 300 hp engines.

    Most down here would love to only have two 300's sucking on the tank. Most have triples or quads on the center consoles.

    Anyone notice the bow seat had moved out of alignment?
