2 stoke versus 4 stroke and fuel

I have a 200hp 2 stroke which im very pleased with, however the fuel costs are starting to hurt as I do use the boat a couple of times a week. Was after any advice on whether it would be worth changing to a 4 stroke, as in would it be really worth it considering the resale value of a 200hp 2stroke from 2004 with the cost of a new 4 stroke of say 250hp ?

I expect its not really worth it and the response will be the fuel costs are hurting all of us. Any suggestions would be worth while. I think ive spent about 2,500 on fuel since start of the calender year.

Only you can do that calculation based on how many litres you burn per mile or hour and comparing it with a 4-stroke and then working out the payback period (in years I would think)
