If you cruise at 25 mph, it will take about 3 hrs and 15 minutes. 31 gallons divided by 3.25 is 9.5, which means you need to do better than 9.5 gallons per hour. Should be no problem for that boat. Maybe bring along a jerry can just to be sure.
That is my math too. Supposedly 26 mph or so is optimum mpg. I'd definitely take at least one Jug of fuel though. Heck there has to be a TT member along the route that will leave a jug on his dock if you pay him in advance at worst. Maybe 2, one for each way.
Prior boats - (3) X14's, (3) Prostars, and a Tristar.
