Jsut bought my first offshore boat, it's a 23' Sea Ox with a Volvo Penta Diesel AQ40D with 280 outdrive. The bout is in good shape just needs cleaning and some new hardware. Any body out there have any experience with this type set up? What kind of fuel burn should I expect out of a diesel? I would think diesel would do pretty well as far as GPH goes. Can't wait to get her cleaned up and head offshore!!!!
