WanderingStar is on a distinguished road
I don't have guages, I use a dipstick. I don't track my usage, but I filled the tanks two years ago. After daysailing often (50 times a year?) and a few overnight cruises, I added 20 gallons this year. I probably had not used more than 40 in two years. I do like the 12 gallon figure. My figures indicate probably a half gallon per daysail. The engine is a 4-107, the boat 16tons.
