How much diesel is used by a standard engine for a 30 foot boat during an hour at lets say 2500 rpm?

Fuel Consumption is a big advantage with diesel engines. We inserted a graph of fuel use for some typical engines for typical boat sizes into this page. A typical engine for a 25-33 ft (7.6 - 10 m) sailboat consumes about 1.9 liters (0.5 USgal) per hour operating at 2400rpm (a good cruising speed).
