The main thing you need in the solent is a sharp pair of eyes to avoid all the fecking nobburs that float around it in Ribs and PWCs not to mention the ferries knocking up southampton water at 30+ knots.

Wow - 130:1 ratio on the XD100 is quite impressive. Think I will stick with that one on mine especially with comments on the Etec owners forum about use in cold temps.

There seems to be quite a fuel consumption penalty for running twins though - from what I can gather on here you would probably expect somewhere about 1-1.2L/nm with a single engine?

I'd guess they're about the equivalent of a 140HP, performance wise so yes, around that.

Joe Average does about 50 hours a season, so the penalty is approx. 300 litres or €400 in my money.

Data given for information only. This is NOT an invitation to reopen old wounds, I mean the Twins/Singles debate. 'nuff said

EDIT: The 2 litres of XD100 is an exact measurement. I filled the reserviors before departure and refilled them on return. The oil bottle was just at the 2 litre mark and filled the reservoirs perfectly. Sweet.
