Last year I used 67 ltrs and this year I used 53 ltrs with my 150 Optimax on a 6.4 Tornado
This year I did go a lot slower staying back with the smaller boats

Engine is 2 stroke HPDI 250 on a 7.2m old ballistic. Seemed to be cruising most of the time 25-30, with a few blasts upto c50 knts.

Does that sound about right?

I'd be keen to know what you got out of yours .......

Mark
80lts 6.5m Porters Renegade, Yamaha 150 HPDI 4 up, which includes leaving and returning to Eastlands Boat yard at the very top of the Hamble.

We couldn't make the McMillan jolly but we nipped round yesterday morning, 2 hours running time, averaged 25 knots and I recon 160 ltrs of fuel. Strong tides this weekend and St Catherine's was interesting lol

Na, not slipping. Just needing more revs at cruising speed, acceleration and hole shot was real fun though which probably accounted for the extra juice
