Fuel Economy

Just read some sensible common sense tips on getting better fuel economy at www.kb-boatpark.co.uk/Fuel_Economy

Just wondered if anyone else had any tip to add?

Undone!

Wow, you guys are soooooo cynical.........and sharp.......and correct! Was a bit cheeky, but I am genuinely interested in any tips you might have to combat the crazy marine fuel prices! Oh and by the way, despite being an interested party, I am a RIB enthusiast first!

Cheers

Nah...folks 'selling' stuff tend to naively open up along the lines of "I've just stumbled across this never to be repeated..." so I'll take out a new membership and for my first post I'll let you all into the secret.

Not cynical, just marginally observant and amused by an oft-repeated practice
