Actually I'm not sure I'd have enough tank range to do this.

I have a 100ltr tank, and the spec sheet I've found says my 85AET will be doing 35l per hour which gives me 2hrs running with 30l left for contingency. Even at 25knt average that only gives me 50 nautical and I make the trip as posted more like 75 - 80. I guess I could haul a couple of jerry cans...

Do these sums make sense or am i being a numptie (willfish, feel free to sit this one out!)? Are these the sort of fuel costs I should be getting used to?
