I have not yet had a chance to use my 2007 180 Challenger but will be putting it in the water in two weeks. I have seen contradictory infomation regarding how much gas these boats eat. I have seen a few people write that they can spend half a tank of gas on 4 - 6 hours of use but I just saw something from boattest.com on YouTube that says they only get 3.15 MPG. If that is the case you would only get 2 - 3 hours of use on an entire tank.
What type of use have people typically gotten out of a tank of gas?
I also have an '07 180. We average about 6-8 hours at a time on the water. Usually takes 14-17 gallons to refill afterward.
I installed a fuel flow meter. At full speed, (44 mph by gps), with 4 adults and all the crap my wife insists we bring, it shows 3.8 gallons per hour. But if I throttle back, I can still do about 23 mph, but the flow drops to 2.1 gallons per hour.
Quite a difference. Hope this helps.
