We've got a 90 litre tank with our Yam 115hp & obtain around 1L per mile, if lightly loaded. Hope this helps?

I think it would probably just about make it on a full tank, and I'd take a couple of jerry cans to top up on the way. Hmm, the trip is sounding tempting!

Thanks everyone!

Remember to check unleaded availability at the other end before you go.

No catalytic converter; I suspect a yam 4 stroke would run fine on leaded fuel, as long as the Octane rating was appropriate (86 and up I think.)
