My 97 Johnson Venom has been good to me, I on the other hand I have not been good to it! I have had to put 2 lower units on it 6 years. The only problem I had with the motor that wasn't my fault was a fuel pump. I'm sure my gas mileage sucks, but you gotta pay to play.

On the older motors, divide the HP rating (150, 175, 200 etc.) by ten. This is roughly how many gallons per hour you will burn at WOT.

I have a Johnson 150 GT and it gets about 2 MPG at 4000 RPM.
