RE: Which Style Trawler?

I have not yet completely discounted a 40 footer. There is one for sale in my area but has twin 120's and I think that the fuel costs will be too high to be practical for my budget.
I was on a different forum and the concensus of opinion was that running on one engine will consume only 5% less than running on two. I find that hard to believe and have not checked that out yet with an expert. There is lots of misinformation on the web and old wives tales never die so I don't know what to believe after a while.
