Yamaha 130 V4 2 Stroke fuel consumption
I am currently looking in to the viability of my diving clubs boats with regard to costs per dive, our Yamaha 130 2 stoke V4 appears to be burning 3 litres a mile when run at 3800 rpm and about 22 knots with 6 divers and kit in our 5.8 m tornado rib. The engine is serviced annually with new plugs and filters and starts first turn with no problems.
From the wealth of experience on this site could anyone give me some indication as to whether this consumption is to be expected, I know 2 strokes are thirsty beasts but this seems excessive.
Thanks guys in advance.
