I'd still like to be in a position where I 'had' to spend £4k filling up the tanks.
Yeah, it's beyond belief what they use.
No comparison but my dad has a Princess with two Ford marina engines. Can't for the life of me think what ltr they are at the moment coz I've got that much going around in my head with the searider. I know they're 6ltr + though. He loves them as they are the same block as in the trucks he used to drive in his younger days
Anyway when he bought it in 2002 it cost around £250-300 to fill the twin tanks, which dropped everyones yaw at the time. That's now gone through the roof to well over a grand. So it doesn't get used much anymore.
To fill any of the yachts above, and use like you'd want to you'd have to be on the kind of money where even footballers ask you to buy them a pint!
