Re: Diesel consumption.

I think you want to add RPMs. If I run at 1800 RPM's (my sweet spot) I get @80% power (approx 5kn) and 2hrs/gal. If I run all out at 2800 RPMs I get 100% power (6kn+) but as little as 3/4hr/gal. You want to track your consumption levels. To do that, you'll need to keep an eye on your engine speed.
