Indeed - though at that LPH I am around 45-50knts, so covering the ground quite well. Fuel consumption is one thing I will admit to being paranoid about - a hangover from flying I think.
I was taught NEVER trust the gauges - but as I cant see the boat tank , or stick a bit of wood in it I am having to over come it! Though knowing I run out at 120 L ( having done it) is helpfull. Add another 75L in cans & I should just make it ( only just in my mind ! )
