    Default Volvo MD 22 fuel consumption

    Any out there got a figure for fuel consumption of this engine. Ideally real life, not brochure. Normally run about 2000rpm

    Thanks

    Eek! Our Perkins equivalent uses 2 to 3 litres at about the same revs. Through the French canals at minimum throttle we were using a lot less. But we do have an Autoprop that improves fuel economy.

    My MD22P has averaged 2.8 ltr/hr over the last 1000 hours, in a 40ft boat at an average speed of 5.6 knots at 2000RPM.

    Our 42 foot MD 22P 1800rpm 2lph 2000 rpm 2.5 LPH
    I keep a very close eye on this , my filler is in the cockpit floor , so I tend to fill to the top of the filler then next time do the same and compare with engine hours .

    Hi can I ask what boat and prop you have ?
    We have a Brunton three blade auto prop and at 1800 rpm unless running in big seas we can easy get well over 6 kts

    That’s funny it used to be rule of thumb 20hp/gallon (4.5ltr)/hour for real hp usage
