Fuel Consumption..3406 Cat
We have a Cat 3406 but rated at 540hp. However, our vessel is*a bit*heavier displacement (35,000lbs)*and quite a bit*longer (53ft), and our consumption at hull speed (9.2kn) is 4.7 gals/hour or 18 liters/hour.
*I suggest you join boatdiesel.com ($25) and use the prop/power calculator on the website. You enter all the parameters and it will tell you the fuel consumption at a range of speeds.
