I can't tell you about fuel mileage since I'm not 100% sure, but I will tell you that the motor is Black. :D

Don't know about the 200HP but my 125HP merc salty burned an average 2.2 GPH in its first 25 hrs this past season pushing an 18' WA.

Merc 200

I have said engine on my 24' wellcraft. I get 2.5 miles per gallon at cruise, which is about 28 miles an hour, loaded with 3/4 tank of fuel (75 gal) & 700lbs of people on board. Fires right up & idles all day at 800 rpm.

Change the impeller every season if you lay up in the winter, every other season if you run all the time. Oh, & don't forget to fill the oil tank :rolleyes: That alarm will scare the 6ell outta ya when you are 30 miles off shore!

2.2 to 2.5 is about right Mercs love to run wide open...after the break in period of course. I get a little bit less because I let her eat every chance I get. mainiac
