Opti 115 oil consumption

What should I expect?

I noticed that I used about 2/3 of the tank which would be say 2.5 – 2.75 l
On about 175 - 190l fuel (or that what I think I put in). That works out at 75:1 at best but for some reason I was expecting over 100:1 Perhaps I put in more fuel than I can remember I didn’t keep a record.

I don’t push it hard at all mostly cruise at 3,750 -4,250 and only with 4 up and snorkelling gear.

Should I be worried?
