I'm not sure exactly how accurate that is. Hours may be different. I estimated insurance. Many other factors not listed.
Just a guess here but $7 per hour is probably closer to what it is actually costing you/us based on your numbers. Fuel usage on 17hp kawi runs 1 gallon per hour - or at least mine does.
