I have a 2003 2520 notched stern with F225 (w/135 hours)and whatever
prop is "standard": at 4300 RPM = 30MPH, at 5400 RPM = 40 MPH.
Today I went fishing for 96 miles and used 30.2 Gallons = 3.17
MPG. On a 460 miles trip to Norfolk, Va running 4300 RPMs I seemed
to get 3.3 MPG, which is what the YAM test results were -- link from
the Parkerboats.net site. Hope this helps, Phil @ Sea Gate
