It'll be at least 2,500 I'm afraid; it's a long way at 1.5 litres a mile!

Better than my 2.5l per mile @ 10 knots

Excellent find Erin, if you want to just translate that and repost it....

Told you that 4-strokes were the way forward .

I'll try and interpret the important bits out of the pdf, and see what I can make of it.

I still maintain that Paul's engine should perform much much better than 1.5 lpm.

Even so, working to the ubiquitous 1:1 ratio it is a long way. Ergo, a lot of juice.

Well, it is a V6, 3.5 litre two-stroke I suppose. It could be worse of course; it could be a Verado.

At least from the range point of view, as I've got 600l capacity that gives me nearly 450 km between fill ups, enough to get from Rouen to Paris and back...just...maybe...

In that case I think I'll just buy a transfer pump and siphon some out of yours when you're not looking

Surely you'd just run on one though alternating every 50 miles

10 kts on 1 engine = 2700rpm & 28 lph
10 kts on 2 engines= 2200rpm & 24 lph (12+12)
