"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"
