Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old threads or hijack existing threads. Old threads of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old threads should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís thread (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the thread is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old thread.

5. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís thread. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to threads that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any thread that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old thread.

7. Posting at the end of any thread is considered to be hijacking the original posters thread which in turn subjects the thread to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive thread asking you not to reply to old threads. The Red banner will read: Please note this thread has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new thread.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • Fuel consumption of a 150-175 Johnson Ocean runner(Carbed)

    May upgrade boat and would need a motor. Nothing expensive and I like the ease of maintenance on the old 2 strokes. Anybody have any fuel burn numbers of a 150-175 on a 20-21 foot center console. How many gallons per hour at 4000-5000 rpm. I know every boat will produce different number but do these motors burn gobs of fuel or are they about average for carbed two strokes? Any other choices in the older models?

    10% of rated HP for fuel consumption on any carbed two stroke. That means 15 - 17 g/hr. Even the EFI/DFI engines fall into the same range so newer isn't necessarily more economical at WOT. Some advantage in the lower RPM ranges.

      10% is rated at WOT...if you pull it back to 4000-5000 you should find a sweet spot that will do significantly better.

        Those late 90s 60* V6 motors run great and have good power. They do suck some fuel however. My 21 footer with a 150HP oceanrunner will get between 2-4MPG, depending on speed, load and water.

          I get about 10 GPH out of my Grady Tournament 19 while cruising in the sweet spot at 4200 RPM, weighs in at about 3300lb with a moderate to deep v-hull.

              I took my '94 J150 out for a test run , had a 6 gal tank that wasn't full, maybe 4-5 gals, we were out 45 minutes running it around, only rarely going to WOT for testing, mostly puttering around at 1/2. Probably went a mile or two, seems to fit with everyone elses numbers.
