$1.18/L is seriously cheap here for a marina. It`s currently $1.17 at the "servo" (Aussie for fuel station) for my diesel car.

Not going to need much fuel with the Clipper/Cummins combo delivering under 3 litres per nautical mile At better than 9 knots, probably some tide assist but I will take what I can get!

Hours: 80.9

MPG: 1.85

Burn Rate: 3.5 gph

Excitement at these prices evaporates when I realise you US guys are posting US prices on a thread about Aussie fuel pricing. Servo pump prices currently around $1.17/L.

Since no one reads to see what forum the thread is in, might be good in the future to clarify in the thread title. Of course, still might not stop anyone.

Filled boat fuel tanks this morning, took 1803 litres @ $1.23 per litre , I can live with that as we have traveled from Townsville to Lizard Island, back to Cairns, out to Fitzroy And Green Islands and back to Cairns again plus run the genset for about a 100 hours making water and power for us.
What really hurts is the qld govt owned marina here which charged $12.44 in berth fees to pull up at the fuel wharf even though we are paying $64 a day in marina fees. No help either with tying up or fuelling. I would avoid filling up here unless you have to😡

Do they charge to tie up at the fuel dock just to get fuel (that you are paying for)? That is not good...

Yes, a per metre of boat length charge in addition to the fuel cost. Imagine the uproar if servos charged car drivers just to park at the pump. Typical bloody government snafu. It's the same marina which makes everyone leave in a cyclone to avoid any liability. How that's right sending people out into a cyclone to park in muddy creeks. It's a pity because it is a great location here in Cairns but the cyclone issue will se us spend summer in Townsville or Airlie. Just need to do a deal on a berth.

Boy that's rough, they must have made a motsa during the last week with the 50 th annual billfish celebrations.
A friend of mine Craig Smith aka Pirate, made the new marlin sculpture that was put up for the celebrations.
mate have scored a nice berth in Mackay 16 mts for $700.00 /month, I think I have a new home base.
I have heard that there are some deals , private, going at the new uncompleted marina Port of Airlie "Muddy Bay" probably worth a check.
