Volvo Penta Fuel Burn

Can anyone tell me how much diesel would be burnt/used by Twin 1975, 75HP Volvo Penta's at cruise speed in a 5 berth (most times only one man and his dog aboard) fibreglass powerboat/yacht, LOA: 32', Beam: 10.6, Draught: 2'9” coastal cruiser/launch
I do not know the weight of the boat but here is a link to one of the boats I'm asking about. Princess Yacht

Thanking you in advance for any advice.
No-one knows but...You could be dead for a long time! So treat others as you would have them treat you! Go out in the world and enjoy your life
