It's obviously gonna be a 2 hour ish run for you, 30Knt's-61nm,
how much does the kad 300 burn at say 2/3 throttle, that'd be roughly right,

My estimate is based on 20 galls/hour for roughly 1hour 10/15

60mph ish


Anyway, I suspect not as much more than you as you might have thought, higher consumption but less time on the move (remember I wont be going at all if it's blowing a hooly)

I recon we will be around 18 gals max, maybe a touch less.I need to speak to volvo and get some as near as they can figures,its electronic so its more fuel efficent than a Manual injection engine.And the drive is mega efficient so i need to equate all these factors.

I will know for next weekend.I did know but have forgotton as i slept since then.Your boat is a lighter boat as its smaller all ways round.Exept in the fuel burn stakes.And engine room.

wot's your all up weight gonna be? at a geuss I would expect your motor to burn around 13-14 imp galls/hour at WOT, as you say the EDC may make it better at part throttle (cruising), but with most, "WOT" consumption is much the same!

so your saying a cruising consumption of around 9 GPH (at 30 Knts)

Yes hopefully.We will see
Half load 3.9 ton 2hr x 9gall an hour two thirds throttle = 18gals full throttle 28galls aprox 1.35ish.

I have to say I will try and check the figures as this is off the hip,I will clarify next wk.

By By.
