I have a humber 6.5 ocean extreme aka ocean pro, with the 1.7 mercruiser.
I get roughly 0.7 of a litre to a nautical mile.

And it goes incredibly fast for a 1.7 diesel.

My 2.2L 140 HP Outboard on a smaller boat is on a par with Niks 1.7 diesel.

Best wishes,

We have the same unit with a jet drive fitted to one of our 6 metre boats as a demonstrator - it's economical and the jet is a lot of fun - we also offer the stern drive option as well as the new Mercruiser Vazer which is a 100hp inboard petrol
