Yep, US gallons as it happens.

My 225 Opti does about 0.7nm/Litre, dropping to about 0.62nm/L at WOT. The Smartcraft shows 24 US gph at WOT and between 11 and 15 US gph at 30-35kts depending on the weather.

It's not actually much more fuel than my SR5.4 uses at 30+ knots.

I agree but I do really want to keep it if I can! The friend just wants rid of it (it belonged to someone else and he was only storing it - the owner went back to Australia and has now said that my friend can get shot of it!)

Missed that detail off before to keep the post shorter!

I can store it easy enough and also have a mechanically minded brother in law to work on it with me. Could be rewarding project!

This weekends detailed inspection will decide it!!
