Fuel Consumption

Recommended Posts

You can't look at it in those terms, as it depends what speed you are doing, and what the tide and wind are doing.

On the Broads at 5 MPH I would hope for about 2.5 litres an hour.

A Perkins driven carefully, will do as little as 1.6 per hour.

A Nanni 5 cylinder at 2800 RPM, over 7 litres.

On average, over the year including diesel heater in winter, that’s about what my bmc1.5 has done too with my horizon 35ft. I use os map and old fashioned measuring wheel to measure mileage.
