10k can't be right can it

1000 nautical miles x 1 litre/mile = 1000 litres x 1.31 (Guessing Irelands fuel prices) = 1310

Unless I'm going mad, thats a bargain

He did not say how often he wants to circumnavigate Ireland for 10.000 quid.

I plan just one round trip and calculate with appr 1.800€ .
My Yamaha consumes normally bit less than 0.5l/km . Adding even 20% will give me around 1150 liters of burned fuel for the entire trip .

Gilles, in what country are you living??? Belgium or Luxemburg??? In Luxemburg it might cost 1.3eur but indeed in Belgium it is even more than 1.60eur. So good luck with your circumnavigation of Ireland. If you are in distress sometime, just use your distress button on the Icom and I will jump into my Ribquest and come to your rescue euuh but you pay the petrol cost then he
