I've done a quick check on PC Planner, and Cowes to Alderney via the Needles is about 75 miles assuming you don't deviate from a straight-ish course.
Unless it's dead flat and you cruise at 25kts I'd agree with Erin that you'll probably need to allow 1.5 litres per mile so I'm guessing you will use about 115 litres each way.
Fuel in Alderney is about the same price as in the Solent so unless you have a huge tank I'd suggest you add a bit of fuel in Alderney for the return trip.
