115hp/75hp fuel consumption

So I'm looking at getting a new boat. Looking at either ring 16 with a 115 yamaha optimax or a fletcher arrowflash with a 75hp mercury.

What will the fuel consumption be like?
Will there be a big difference between the two engines as well?

Lastly how do people rate those engines?
I used to own an old mercury 50hp gold band that seemed bulletproof! Now own a 50hp tohatsu that's greAt also. Just not worth with these before

Cheers
Luke

fletcher arrowflash with a 75 mercury is a great outfit with good fuel consumption I had one for 5 years and it was a great allrounder good for about 47 mph and pulls 1 skier on a mono no bother
