yeah,
Old school gas engines gave about 10HP-per gallon-per hour. So, 310hp would burn 31.0 gal/hour.
If they say your newer MPI gets 11hp per gallon per hour, I'll buy that.
But, that is WOT @ 310hp.
Cruising your only gonna make about half that or 15/gal/hr.
Oak is over rated, everything about it takes extra time; then it warps, splits or checks !!! :roll:
