    Interesting info about one of the last surviving PT boats, 200 GPH at cruise and 500 GPH at WOT.....50 knots, powered with three V-12, supercharged, intercooled 1850 HP Packards.

    I wonder if you could troll off the main?.....

    As impressive as 50 knots is, that gas consumption is amazing.....it must be half gas tank!

    3000 usg capacity.
    Makes 7-8 USGPH seem downright reasonable.
