We live aboard four months per year - mid-Dec to mid-Apr. We fly there and back once per year. The OB on the dink uses about 30 gal per season, and because we get our electricity from wind and solar - and we actually SAIL from place to place (what a concept!) - we only put about 30 gal. of cheap Venesualan diesel through the Perkins. On that basis, who cares????
