    Hi everybody,

    I wonder if anybody could give me some idea of how much fuel the new engine will burn, and therefore I'll have a fair idea how much fuel I'll need.

    She's an old Morgan-Giles 30, plated at 7.5ton. I've put a new Beta 10 in, and I've run her around the voe a good few times to run her in but I haven't any idea of fuel consumtion yet. A fair idea of gallon/hour would be handy as I don't think the mast will be up this year and that means that I have to motor down to the Fair Isle rather than sail.
