I had read somewhere that 1 litre per mile is about right but I assume that is high speed motoring not river tootling. Plus I thought the etec was supposed to be very fuel efficient.
Any etec owners have figures for their engines?
i would not be surprised if that was about right for the run last Saturday. the trip over to cowes, was not particularly quick, but if you were anything like me, you were on and off of the throttle, probably not getting onto the plane much, and hence not being particularly efficient.
It's quite amazing how much that sort of trip can increase fuel consumption.
That said, I stand to be corrected by those more experienced, especially those with a newer tech outboard and fuel flow meters.
Hope this helps a bit.
