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?
your figures are prob about right. think a lot of people have to carry extra cans - we do.
