How much fuel did you use RIOW?

So, how much fuel did you consume going RIOW then at the weekend?

I'm still new to my boat, but the floscan says I used 108 ltrs. and did c66miles. So 1.6 ltrs per mile.

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

I have no idea, cant really accurately measure how much used, fuel guage is just a simple analogue type, a lot is all I can say, Poole round isle of wight and back against the tide.
