What he says is, of course, quite correct and I was only 500m short of Yarmouth .... It could have been 500M for all the difference.
Fill up before you leave Lymington on the Nacho Run and either fill up in Yarmouth (cheaper) or in Lymington on your return (more expensive but better average) to find out Mpl (nautical miles per litre) for the boat.
If you do the R the I, I'll bring my 30l and jiggle tube (and I might put some fuel in the 30l as well!
