    I have a 185 with a 4.3...smaller than your and I get 4.5 MPGUS or 5.3 us gallon/hr.

    You will probably get less than that.

    This based on my first 50 hrs with my new boat.

      Same engine, but fuel injected. Yours may not be. On my 195 at best economy speed about 5mpg, but since I don't go that fast I normally get 4 mpg including no wake zones, stopping and starting again a few times. Hard question to answer, just like it is for a car. For a boat, wind is a bigger factor and current is also an issue if you are talking mpg over the ground rather than relative to the water. More like an airplane than a ground vehicle. It depends on the conditions. If you keep close track of fuel consumption and use a phone app like speedpro+ you can get a pretty good idea if it's mpg over ground that you are interested in. If you want to squeeze that last 10% out of your boat you're obsessing, IMHO.
