(aged) 2 stroke 90 on a searider 5.4 gets 1.0 - 1.2 NM to litre. I budget 1 mile=1 lire. Anything better is a bonus. That works out at about 5 galls/hr @ 24 kn @ 3/4 throttle. A bit more at wot.

If that helps...

We seem to be able to chew through 5 gallons an hour at WOT. About 38MPH in the Zodiac Fututa Mark IIC and about 27 MPH in the little Hurricane. But switching props and taking it easy we can stay in the 3 gallon an hour range. When we cross Lake Michigan, about 56miles, we take a 12 gallon and two 5 gallon tanks (You never know whats going to happen).

Thanks for the info, I took the old girl out today on the River Trent, sticking to the speed limit in displacement mode it ate the fuel up big time.
