Both des and I didn't see the units of measurement as you have pointed out thats why it looked wrong, but 0.8 litres per miles is good espcially if its the red stuff, now if we could just buy it from JW we would be laughing, 64 ppl at Gosport the other day.

re units

I think we should all talk the same language.... HENCEFORTH it will all be in

LITERS/HOUR with a quoted RPM and speed of boat

liters/mile = doesnt mean much as it too dependent on conditions

God has spoken!!!

Just because you are Europeanised doesn't mean we all are - what is wrong with gph??? Or gpnm or even milkbottles per millenia - as long as people make it clear what figures they are using!!!

with the new eurapean way of measuring cars consumption figures in (litres per 100 kilometers


thats my boy Roy.. spot on - throw it at 'em. especially if you have to talk
about us gallons and imperial.

In fact last year was in Canada - now thats a problem

Quebec - the enlighten part use liters
Ontario - use liters and imperial gallons
and
some parts use imperial gallons and us gallons.

Dont know what you are doing half the time ......

I knew you would say THAT................ but it would be nice if we all used the same language.. Do you speak welsh???
I am not particularily preaching the case of Europe dominus- I find it easier
to use metric than other stuff. Look at the measurements for hand tools

- inches,
-witworth
- af
ect..

a nightmare

The only problem with quoting litres/min or hour at a given RPM is that you need a fuel computer!! I haven't got one, so the only way I can do it is as an average of engine run time and how much diesel I put in each time I visit the fuel pontoon.

I was just sharing my average consumption figures for general interest.

wasnt knocking you Dylan..... but if you can afford a 300hp rib then you can afford a fuel meter. I am not talking about a fuel computer. You can pick up a decent one from Flowscan in the States for about $270 - that will give you
liters/ hour + accumulative, and you can then calculate how much you have left in the tank. Its +/- 3%. and relative easy to fit. For me its a MUST - as to run out of gas in the middle of the channel doesnt do my ticker any good!!!!!!!!!!!!
