Why not..

Old thread but why not.. My 44hp Westerbeke consistently burns .72-.74 GPH at cruise speed which is 80% of WOT and I measure it at every fill up. My old A4 used to burn well over a gallon per hour pushing a boat 9,000 pounds lighter..

I can't imagine anyone questioning diesels ability to sip fuel in comparison to gas engines guzzling it.
