Default Merc 4.3L V6 190HP consuption - just for log purposes

I've owned a 19 feet Maxum for 5 months only :O
It was my very first boat, I loved it, it was an amazing boat but... I discovered a whole brave new world and I want more!
I'm currently looking for a ~25 feet (cruiser like) boat.

While owned it and for these last refuellings, I made some consumption logs. Before delete all this boat related notes I made, I'll post the interesting ones here for log purposes.

For a Mercruiser 4.3L V6 190HP (262 CID) with bravo one generation II we have
date, current engine hours, fuel quantity, per hour consumption
8/8, 342h, 76l (is now full), n/a
15/8, 345h, 52.32l (full), / 3h = 17,44 lph
20/8, 348h, 53.39l (full), / 3h = 17,80 lph
25/8, 353.5h, 60.8l (full), / 5,5h = 11,05 lph *

* curiously this period of time represents an higher speed average

Thanks for sharing and best of luck finding a cruiser that fits your desires.

BTY: I am pretty sure you had an Alpha 1 Gen 2 drive and not a Bravo 1 Gen 2.
