Dont buy a 275 Verardo and think you will get 60 ltr an hour. If its a heavy boat and if you like to push it, your in for some shocks.

Thanks Roy , I saw the 250 test in RI which suggested the 250 gets 72lph when maxed out, I mentioned earlier also that the 275 will be worse, we were generalising about engines on general rev ranges with reference to the 60lph figure, so I know thats not the norm. The verado has worried me about its consumption on wot, but I'd appreciate if you could be more specific, and let me know what exactly you've experienced with what set up ,, Cheers

At wot, most petrol engines are going to be using about the same fuel for the same power. Engine efficiencies will not be greatly different across the engine types and there is a limited amount of energy available from the fuel. At part throttle it may well be different because some engines can waist a quantitly of fuel.
