  1. was your loop trip fuel consumption so far 4.94 gph as indicated by your posted stats in the forum? And you are not yet completed correct?

  2. We are presently at 3200 miles of a estimated 6000 mile trip.

    Overall we have gotten 1.34 gallons per mile, the best was in the fast current of the Mississippi where we got over 3 miles per gallon.

    I don’t do gallons per hour since that has lots of “it depends in it” But according to the spreadsheet, we are at 4.9 gallons per hour. Based on my average 8 miles per hour and my current MPG rate, that number is right.

    Bottom line is running the Quo Vadimus is pretty much taking money out and going “20 40 60 80 … ” as we go down the river.
