      Hi,
       
      Tim's C27 is near vintage (1985) to your 84 C36, Ahmet, and my 84 C30 ..
       
      Our motors are the Universal M-1521, 21 (or 23 hp)  Tim has the 1514, a 14 hp ...
       
      My boat came with a 18 gallon fuel tank.  I'm guessing that Tim's has between a 12 to 18 gallon tank.  My (our) engines get about 1/4 to 1/3 gallon per hr at approx. 2500 RPMs.
       
      I would guess that Tim's will get similar. .. So at 14 gallons he should get about 40 hours of motoring.  I think a full tank should cover this distance .. BUT of course 6 to 10 extra gallons on its maiden delivery is very wise. You don't want to allow the tank to drop to or below 1/4 tank (especially on the maiden) or un-known over consumption.
