    I only track expenses if I want to change my habits or figure out a way to adjust something somewhere! As far as the boat and my rigs go............I'm not willing to change my habits/hobbies!

    Now if it get's to $10/gallon that might be a different story.

    i dunno... mine is only bad after eating chili......

    seriously though... i don't bother, its to depressing. If i can afford to own a boat i better be able to afford the gas. Luckily the company i work for pays for most of my fuel needs so my bill is lower than most.

    I haven't check this year, but my costs have gone down(a little, at least I think) with more hours..

    I bought these cans below so I could stop paying $5+ at the local marina, instead I pay $3.70 or cheaper at the local gas station. Each can holds almost 6 gallons and they're super easy to use, no stupid epa caps spilling everything. I just kink the hose, stick in the hole then lay it down on the rear pad and it empties by itself almost completely.

    I found that one rider doing 2 wake board sets and 2 surf sets averages about 5-6 gallons.

    I gave my regular riders a can and have them bring it filled, much easier than trying to get cash..

    Buy the cans only get this hose, I found it today..

    Actually that was a good reminder. I had come across a process for a refund of the non-highway fuel in my job... (Yeah, I'm a CPA).

    In WA there is a form that you can use to apply for the ability to get a refund on the "off highway" fuel use. I just talked to the Washington State Dept of Revenue and the refund is averaging around $0.10 a gallon. Not a ton, but why should I be paying taxes that go towards road maintenance on the fuel that I use in my boat?? Or better yet, why not get a refund on the boat fuel I use if I'm eligible????

    This is the form for WA:

    I'll be doing this from now on.

    So I'm intrigued - you can claim a refund of ~ $.10 a gallon, as long as your claim is a minimum of 54 gallons. Hell - that's one good weekend! Do you happen to know what kind of documentation/receipts are necessary to go along with it?

    Pretty sure last year's boat gas bill was in the $2k range, so figure approx 500 gallons. I suppose 10 minutes or so of my time is worth $50 as long as I don't have to jump through too many hoops.
