Fuel Saving Tips

You can enjoy the lake just as much as ever, and use less fuel at the same time.
Ways to reduce fuel consumption on the water:

  • Don’t under power your boat
  • Reduce cruising speed
  • Have your engine tuned up
  • Make sure you have the proper propeller
  • Make sure your hull is clean
  • Don’t idle at the dock for long periods
  • Use trim tabs properly
  • Take shorter trips
  • Try anchoring out to swim, fish, or just relax on the water with friends

Boating is more than recreation – it’s a lifestyle. Don’t let fuel prices ruin your boating summer.
