I am looking for confirmation on my Fuel burn numbers it seems awfull cheap to run for me but Math is Math Cartouche is a Mainship 390 up in Canada so we only use her 5 Months a year she has a single Yanmar 370Hp with a Koehler 8KW Generator which we have only put 4 hours on since purchase in 2017, Comments would be appreciated as we are planning an extended cruise this year and want to make sure my math is close.
All info is from our Log
2018
Engine Hours at Launch 1705.26

Engine Hours Used 77.85
Fuel full at Launch
Fuel Purchased $1,557.59 (Average price of $1.70 CDN per Litre
Distance Travelled 509.38 NM
My Calculation is
$3.06 per NM
0.09 Hrs per Litre
0.56 NM to the Litre
average speed was 6.95 Knots
Average RPM was 2070:37

Engine Hours at Launch 1783.11
Engine Hours at Haulout 1863.99

My Calculation is

I calculate that to be around 2 gallons per hour and that to me is not unreasonable considering your speed. At the end of the day it is what it is and you have to plan fuel stops accordingly.

They look right to me. Averages and hours can get a little skewed when locking, but the NM/l should be consistent and easy to use for planning, particularly if you operate within a narrow speed range.

I think we went through some locks together last spring heading north from Kingston last spring. Your boat looks nice!

The only thing that jumps out at me is $1.70 per liter, thats around $7.00 a gallon. Come to the U.S. and enjoy cheaper fuel.
