Range of Small Engines when motoring...only.

I guess what I am wanting to ask here is what is the range of sail boats when only the motor is in use. I see a lot of different size engines mentioned and fuel limits....example follows:

Engine Mfg: Yanmar
Engine Type:
Engines: 0
Fuel Type: Diesel
Fuel Capacity 20 Gallons
Engine Hours: 0
Horsepower 17 hp
Cruising Speed: 5 knots
Max. Speed: 6 knots
Hull Material: Fiberglass/Composite
Passengers: 0
Sleeps 5
LOA: 30 Feet
LWL: 24.9 Feet
Beam: 10 Feet
Draft 5 Feet
Displacement: 8000 lbs

Does anyone have a good guess at the range of the above example?

Pretend there is no wind today.
