Hi - I don't know about the fuel and speed. The engine and rib hull are pretty good and well proven. If you can try it and also something like a ribcraft of similar size. I would say it is a good sea keeping hull (for the size) , handles well - like a bigger rib really, but this hull and tubes give a slightly 'wet' ride. You won't go far wrong, but try a few different ones if you can. I tested a ribeye 550 and own a 600. Although not to all tastes I think they compare well to the other choices when you actually try a few out. Re sale value pretty good too.note: ribeye made significant improvement in A series around 2006 I think - hull and transom. Worth googling to see if your possible one is pre or post these changes. Before the changes they were less well constructed and finished I believe. Richard
