Gas gas gas
On one of my many test i did one this sunday too.
I ran my rib on a freshwater lake at calm weater with me and 1 person 70 liters gas and some home-sickeness.
the test was to see how far / long i could run 1 liter of gas (95 octane).
I mesured the speed with a gps and monitored the rev. and time.
the results follows:
Nr 1 15,5 kts 2600rpm 3min 45sec.
Nr 2 20,0kts 3000rpm 3min 15sec.
Nr 3 28,0kts 4000rpm 2min 15sec.
Nr 4 30,6kts 4170rpm 1min 55sec. WOT.
driving home i did not find eny perquliar about these figures, as i have always learned that fuel/time rate raises fast at max speed.
som time later i realised that it was not at WOT. the consuption / NM. was highest, but at the lowest speed!
the numbers are as follows:
Test Liters / NM distance sec. Liters / hrs.
Nr 1 1,032 1793m 225 15,99
Nr 2 0,920 2006m 195 18,5
Nr 3 0,950 1944m 135 26
Nr 4 1,023 1810m 115 31
I guess the testing will go on for a while, as every modification needs my greedy eyes as petrol here runs for 10,5NOK ( 8.91£)
