If no one has Verado 275 what about the Verado 250 or Verado 225

Your experiance will help me to estimate how much fuel needed for a trip.

Bogi, the SmartCraft which comes with each Verado is great as you know exactly at all times how much fuel you are burning. You must however calibrate the fuel tank so follow the instructions in the manual. MInd you these are thirsty beasts but which engine of that size isn't. Anyway the Verado is a great range of engines.

I know they are thursty but how thursty, I will not have mine until late winter so I canīt measure it myself.
I am going to do a trip which refueling will not be possible and it make a lot difference whether consumption is 1 1/2 liter pr. mile or 2 liter pr mile.
I need to put decent size fuel tanks under the floor before they complete building the boat so I will need less loose tanks on board for the trip.

Hi Bogi

Normaly we drive with allmost full trottle(5800-6000) use 75 L pr/engine ( full trottle 6350 103L)

Do 4000 rpm you use about 30-35 L

If you need a more specific number. just say what rpm you want me to do and I will try it in the next days

4000 rpm 30 L 36kn
5000 rpm 40 L 45kn
