Thanks all for your input. The boat we are considering is in the ft Lauderdale area.
We have also seen a 48 lrc with twin Lehman 120hp and that makes more sense for range and cost but doesn't have the great space and layout of the 53.

In the case of the 53 we would cruise slowly to reduce consumption but was just thinking that with smaller injectors we could handle the lower rpms without affecting the engines as much as going slow with the larger injectors.

I did also read somewhere that a 20% saving was possible but can't find the article any more.
