I've just measured the fuel consumption of my engine (Johnson 2 stroke carb, 115 V4) for the first time.
58.6 litres to cover a GPS measured trip of 45.2nm seems a bit on the high side to me, anybody else with similar old-tech carb motor of a similar size able to comment?
I thought the rule of thumb was about 1ltr per nm, I know carb 2 strokes are thirsty but 30% more thirsty?
This was not flogging it in fact a fair bit of time was spent at about 10 knots looking at a nice bit of coastline I'd not seen before, average speed on the whole journey was 15.something knots.
Didn't see any whales either (which was the object of the trip)
