My motor on the 130 is the 40. In the Florida panhandle over a three week period I seemed to be swapping tanks about every 35-40 miles. It looks like a 5 to 6 MPG average but alot of this was against at minimum a light chop and sometimes more. We weigh about 350 to 400 lbs. with coolers, etc. I keep a spare tank on board when and swap the fuel line when the gauge starts bouncing around 1/4 to empty.
My speeds varied greatly between a cruise of around 17-21 mph and wide open at around 30 mph. Someday soon I am going to make a long run at steady cruise on a smooth day till the fuel runs out just to see.

I also have a 130 sport with a 40 IFE. I go about 45 to 50 miles before I swap tanks and there still fuel left in the "empty" when I swap. I estimate I get around 8.3 mpg.
