oil consumption 135 mariner

yet again after your wealth of knowledge guys,

just got back from cruising bristol channel nice and warm not,
give her some stick not to much really used approx 40.00 in fuel and a gallon off oil was needed to top the tank back up. it was full b4 i left this morn so looking like 40 squid equals gall oil .this aint right surely? pre mix would never equal that @ 50:1 mix, nice to know the oil is being pumped round the engine though

45mph is showing 5000rpm , not really sure what the red line is on this engine, wondering if i am running the right prop for the job tis a nice laser 2 jobby though so i am sure it was bought wisely by the previous owner and does top out at 58mph not a gps reading though @ full wonka........ again i am not sure what the rpm is there though, didnt sound like it was reving its nuts off though.
any advise yet again gr8tly appreciated.

according to manual on 3 gallons of oil you get 8.7 hours of continual running,so you are looking at 3 hours running per gallon of oil.
wot on your engine is between 5000 and 5600 rpm
