"8.5mtr rib, on the water typical weight 3200kg, 285hp diesel engine, overall consumption 1.1lt/mile (statute) which is a tad better than 4mpg. This includes all the running the engine has done...flushing, sitting at the quayside etc."


And.... from another thread in another Forum,
"2.5 ltrs per mile from the evinrude 225 E TEC on avr. doing 4500 revs around 27nts but needs proping up 19"p on at the moment going to try 23"p"

Eh? Mr Codprawn, are you sure??

If you read the earlier part of the thread you will see I was passing on the info that John from Quinquari gave a while ago - he builds these boats and runs a fleet of them - if anyone knows he does!!!

Have you looked at the new Navman fuel computer for diesels??? Navman kit tends to be quite reasonably priced!!!

Ahh just looked at the price on Ebay USA - $869!!!

OK, I'm suprised no-one else has picked this up. Sooo, what you're saying is that 2 X 250 ETECS consume 1.1 litres of gas per mile according to your research? That makes each engine consume a little over .5 litre per mile? have I got that right?

Certainly picked that up, and that appears to be exactly what John Price is claiming, and codprawn is quoting.

Wonder if it would be possible to buy 2 flow meters as used on diesel supply pumps etc - one on feed - one on return - zero them both and then work out the difference - would be a damn site cheaper but not very convienient!!!

The Navman meter only came out this year, once the novelty has worn off the price might drop a little but can't see it going down much.

The cheaper option is to do the maths and keep the fuel tank fuel. The GPS give the total mileage for a journey and you should know the total range of the boat anyway.

Hmmm, over on another thread, another 250 ETEC user is claiming 2.5 litres to the mile and a mate of mine with the same, averaged about 1.8 litres to the mile last Friday on a charter, same consumption (on the day) as my 225 Opti. There's a whole lot of difference here. How can this be explained?
