Well I will launch at Beaumaris (like normal) and I have done Beaumaris to Rhosneigr and used about 80l-90l, 4 up and mostly at WOT, and lots of turning around to go back and meet a slower RIB that was out with us.

I dont remember the mileage but i am sure it did work out at about 1 - 2 miles a ltr.

For this trip will be only 2 up, 150ltr internal tank, 25ltr & 15ltr backup.

It's about 60nm round trip ish. I used about 100l last time. We did the Dun Loaghaire cruise on about 140l. Depending on how much dicking around we do on the way. I probably blew more fuel in the last 1/2 hour in the straight on our way back to Ty Calch last year, than the rest of the trip. Good fun though, I just about heard some yottie shouting WAKE! WAKE! as we passed through the low speed zone (at low speed I may add) before we let rip just after the buoy. That's the problem (for some)with planing hulls, they throw a steeper wake at low speed than at planing speed.
