I'm looking for some data on the fuel consumption
for a 4JH4E.
She has an high output Balmar alternator
. I'm trying to work
out our fuel budget
for this year's ARC
I can't get to the boat
to test so it's going to be a bit of guess work
. I'm hoping for an educated guess rather than a wild ass guess!
Does anyone have thoughts on hours per day charging
for the ARC
and litres/hour running the alternator
I'm estimating 1 hour/day minimum and 1,800 rpm
for max output but this is a back of the envelope calculation.
Fridge will be on, new B&G
chart plotters will be used sparingly, B&G instruments
will be used, LED nav lights, charging Iridium
Go and phones/tablets.
It's 45 footer and she sails
well so don't expect much motoring.
