Dave, looks like your ETECS were probably the most economical unless Micks total of 90lts was for both outboards as that would be amazing at 45 per motor.

On my old 6.5 Stormforce, with twin Etec 90s, the typical burn on that run would have been around 90-100L combined each way - so Mick wins

No both engines
That's as long as the guy at the fuel pontoon told me correct that's what my ticket says anyway
Hadd & kerney worked it out but I av forgot what they said
I think you do better on a long steady run it's the stop start that sups the fuel.

Mick, that's surprising how economical those Honda 4 strokes are.

Prize for most fuel efficient outboards must be yours
