overall average not including running in or random canal trips 0.83L per nautical mile. (measured) - probably nearer 0.86L /nm if I nail the throttle, but that would involve further confirmation.

My original comments were closer to the truth than you probably gave credit... Ironic I'm still experimenting with an engine that is older than some of our forum members!

The thing with portable tanks- I'm running a triple setup!



it also strikes me that all this talk of fuel consumption & boat balance should probably be in another thread rather than hijacking Tony's cruise!

Yes your probably right but it start as a valid concern over the fuel needed for ERR.

Camping - behind Highland Arts, 10 per pitch per night. Ground is 'hard' bring a thermarest or air bed. Toilets at harbour.
Fuel - we reckon on 100 nautical miles for around Jura. Petrol at Port Askaig is easier than Craighouse. If we ever have to add fuel at Craighouse we tie up at old Calmac pier. Get the fuel then lower each jerry can down using a rope. A bit tedious but saves the long carry. Smaller RIBs we just nose into the beach and deal with fuel at the shortest possible route to the pump - about 20m.

I promise to get the new website finalised. Its my fault not Eug's

Richard you can usually get diesel at Ghia,Craigjouse, Crinan, Ardfern ,C Haven & Melford Pier as well puffin Divers and Oban marina as usual a phone before passage just to check they have some is always a good measure! Great that you've registered look forward to meeting up again.
Cheers
