We have a 35 ft C&C with a Yanmar GM30. Our fuel consumption is about .75 gallons/ hr at 2700 RPM which is where I generally run it on long trips consistantly. 300 RPM sause about 1/14 gallons per hour.

As stated wind current and sea conditions will affect distance per gallon so that is not as accurate to calculate
