For reference I had a 250 verado and saw 57 under perfect conditions with a 3 blade tempest.

That is what another owner said he has been on many 2018 or previous years 208 Tyee GL. Verado 250 = 57 MPH Verado 300 = 60 MPH Pro XS 250 = 60 MPH Pro XS 300 = 63 MPH

He has a 300 Verado said it gets about 4 MPG around 50 MPH that is impressive.

What is the difference between last years motors & 2019 ? I have been told motors are hard to get because of the changes.

I would be very skeptical of a 4 MPG claim especially at 50 mph. If I see 3 MPG with my Verado, I am happy. At 50 mph I am below 3 for sure. However, they are great overall motors.

X2, based on my experience with the Verado, that's wishful thinking. Anything past about 2/3rds throttle and they get thirsty REALLY quick.

Based on my knowledge of the 208 Pro V, I'd be skeptical of most of those claims for speeds too. Maybe under perfect conditions with a minimal load, but not on average. That hull would be VERY underpowered with a 200HP outboard in my opinion, the 250 will OK, but it won't be a great performer.

I hit 53mph with 6 men myself included that weighed over 200lbs each, heck one guy weighs over 400...lol. That was with 3/4 fuel tank and a FULL livewell.

You can still get the traditional supercharged Verado in a 300 or a 350 and maybe even a 250hp can't remember on the 250 for sure. The long wait time is on the new Pro XS 4 stroke motors in 250hp or 300hp. The new motors look sweet and appear to be the real deal, but on the other hand the Verados are proven extremely reliable.

Did you pack a lunch to get on plane? . I donít care what boat youíre running, with that kind of weight on board, itís gonna be slow going! Itís one thing to tick 53, but what was your average speed?

The Lund 208s are fairly fast hulls once on plane, but like any big glass boat, they need power to get there and get going. The one Iíve driven and fished out of had a 300 Verado, and I wouldnít want any less. Iíve only seen them around here with 300 Verados.

I made a 6 mile run back to the dock at 53, and that was on GPS. I was a but surprised myself as this was the heat of the summer.

Fall 2018 a group of 6 was on Rainy for a week. Buddy had his new Ranger MS18xx with a 200 Verado - he was all done with break-in and had about 25+ hours on the motor. Super quiet motor, good performance. The gas mileage left us all wondering...he averaged just under 2.8 MPG for the trip.

Compare/contrast - I was running my new-to-me Skeeter WX2190 with a Yamaha F300. I averaged 3.97 MPG for the trip.

Both of us had 3 guys in the boat, we ran to all the same places in the same conditions and at (roughly) the same speeds. There wasn't a lot of WOT running - most of the time the conditions dictated 35-40 MPH. Mileage was verified by smart gauges and at the pump for both boats.

Just another data point.

Kevin, I wouldn't be too worried about a larger motor and fuel consumption. I had a Warrior 193 with a 225 Opti. and now a 219 Lund with a 300 V rod. While making the same 30 mile run back from Pollock S.D. to Mobridge my stats running in the sweet spot (4000 RPM, 39-41 MPH) were Opti 10-12 GPH, V rod 9-11 GPH. The 300 hp is plenty of power in fact my friend's 219 with a 350 isn't any faster W.O.T. He is on his 5th 219 and this was the only one with a 350....He is going back to the 300 hp and saving about $4K. Now.... If you run W.O.T. the 193 ill hit 50 at about 20 GPH where the V rod will hit 60 at 30-32 GPH. I hope this helps. Enjoy your new rig.
