fuel economy

sorry to diverse from ribs but my mate has just bought a fx 140 yam cruiser 4 stroke jet ski. We plan on cruising together, me in my rib and himself on ski.
his tank holds 70 ltrs of fuel, does anybody know how many miles he should get on an average speed of 20 knots. cant seem to find any info any where.
Thought somebody on ribnet would know. I can carry fuel for him but it could
get a bit awkward filling out of a container. Thanks.

By the way at that speed his fuel should last all day.

Cheers, you would expect at least 50 miles range on that speed. Which
would be a descent days cruise.
