All the NON Licensed boats have a full 48 lt tanks. The petrol is plenty for the day as the engines are new 4 strokes and they are very economical. Normal usage is 25lt, so you have double than you require for the day.
Comparing to the older two-stroke engine with mixed oil gasoline these engine run quietly and very efficiently!
