So that is $1400 dollars more in a year(than your slowboater) and you covered at least a 1000 more miles!!!...again....all a matter of what YOU consider efficient! Efficiency has different values to different people....and it is not always the cheapest.

I almost never consider mpg. Unless it's for cars.
Speaking of cars I may buy a very nice one today.
