Hello. My friend has a 45 foot ketch
with a Ford Lehman
80hp. He replaced it with a stationary engine
version as it was blown. The injection pump has weights to suit the stationary engine
use and it will only rev to approx 1000rpm when used as propulsion
in his yacht. We can almost get 5K out of it which is good enough for now.
We plan to move the boat, but we need to know approximate fuel consumption
. How much fuel
would you expect the Lehman
80 to use at 1000rpm, obviously the prop will not be absorbing much power at this RPM
I was guessing about 3L/h?
Anyone got any ideas?
