01 x-10 Fuel consumtion and tbi

Hey Guys
i took a trip yesterday, it was a 40 mile trip 20 up and 20 down the lake. cruising at 3500 rpm. i went through 20 gallons of fuel no observable fuel leaks. the time the trip took was approx. 2 hours, i was not being specific because i was not looking for a problem. I'm just wondering if that seems like normal fuel consumption it seems high me. 2 guys in the boat bags empty no real extra weight. most of the time on plane. also i took a look at the rochester tbi, cant find any real info. any info would be appreciated.
thanks

3500 RPM - I don't see that being unreasonable... watersports will you 5-7 gallons an hour and that's not constant running at higher RPMS.
