Can anyone tell me what the tank capacity is for my boat? Guage doesn't work and is down a ways on the "to do" list. I've read 24 gal and 31 gal in 2 different locations.

I go by my guage, but there is no way it is 31 gallons. Its proabbly closer to 24, that may be the number on the dot.

Thanks acurtis. Anyone else know definitively?

maybe you already looked, but the 1996 brochure say 31 gallons.

I have put nearly 30 ga in mine before when it was bone dry.

I have never filled it up from bone dry before, the most I've ever put it there is probably about 25 bucks, that's about 15 gallons. now that I think about it might be more. I'll check this weekend and let you know for sure

Yeah, I read 31 gal in the brochure, I read 24 gal, I think in the owners manual.
A couple weeks ago, I ran it pretty hard all day, used almost a whole tank, and when I was doing some hard turns, waiting for my trailer to get to the ramp, it sputtered twice in a row in the middle of the turn. (Like all the gas ran to one side of the tank and it lost fuel for a sec)When I filled it up, it took 23 gal. I didn't look at the level in the tank, just trying to figure out if it was within 1 gal of bone dry, or 6-7 gal.

My 95 ps 190 has a 31 gal tank.

Thanks guys, 31 gal it is then. At any rate, I can't say enough about the fuel consumption. On an average day, 5-6 hrs on the boat, 1/2 pulling, 1/2 cruising, I only use 12- 15 gal. On the day I put 23 gal in it, I had about 8 hrs of constant pulling. 3 gal/hr or less is stellar fuel economy for 300+ hp, IMO.
