Mercruiser 180HP Petrol Inboard

Does anyone on here have a rough idea of the fuel consumption of an 8m RIB with Mercruiser 180HP inboard.

In my experience they seem to be quite thirsty engines and with only 180HP on an 8m RIB its going to be working quite hard.

Thoughts?

Thanks.

No direct experience, but I reckon you're right!
