Re: Outboard Engines Limit
Just providing my fuel consumption data for perspective:
C&C 24 with 4hp 4-stroke Tohatsu. I maintain 4kn at 30% throttle. Fuel consumption rate is almost immeasurably small.....say 4-5hrs/gallon (conservative) in fairly calm conditions, waves less than 3ft.
I have a 6 gallon tank and wouldn't hesitate to go the 70NM in a pinch.
Definitely watch the oil levels though; they are harder on oil than I would have imagined for such small engines.
