jrd22 will become famous soon enough
We have a fuel gauge that reads for both tanks and both tanks have sight tubes (I use these more often than the gauge) and I track all fuel and hours just because I'm anal about not running out of fuel (tanks hold 190 US gal), which will probably guarantee that I'll run out at some point:-)) Our old Volvo 62 hp consistently burns 1 gph at 2500 rpm which is a little over 6 knots through the water when calm. Wide open I"m sure it would use 3-4 gph.
