There are a number of old strings on this subject. Timjet and I actually ran some performance tests on our boats that measured fuel burn at the same speed both single a twin engined. For a semi displacement hull running in the 8-9 MPH speed range with one prop freewheeling (lowest drag configuration), the fuel savings is in the 20% range.
