My 1999 Outrage 23 came from the factory with (and still has) a 166-gallon aluminum [fuel] tank.

Thanks for the info. Great website. Have since found out that the figure is 160 galons. Is this US Galons or Imperial gallons. At todayds prices makes quite a difference, 20%

The fuel capacity of the 2000 23' Outrage is 166 US gallons.

I am afraid I do not make the connection between:

--today's gas prices

--20-percent (of something)

--and the fuel capacity of 166-gallons (US)

Could you explain?

1 Imperial gallon = 1.201 US gallon

Therefore 20% difference

Thanks--but it still makes no sense to me how the price of gasoline has any effect on the fuel tank capacity of the boat or the ratio between units of measurement.

A friend I am taking out fishing has agreed to fill up the boat and has asked how much it will cost. 166 galon US=133 Imperial. The cost difference = 33 galons X 5.62 Imp Gal would be Approx $185.00 more where I live. So you can see it is somewhat important to know whether your dealing in US gal or Imperial galons particularily for us poor Canadians.

Where in Canada are you located? I actually do more boating in (Ontario) Canada in the summer than I do in the United States, and I have not seen a pump dispensing in Imperial Gallons in many years. On the highway it is just about universal that liters are used for gasoline sales in Ontario. I think I can recall one marina pump (at an out of the way, small town marina) that was still selling in Imperial gallons.

All that is required is a simple conversion from litres to imperial galons or us galons, there was no statement made that are pumps are pumping in galons. I guess its time to call this little game over. Thanks to all.
