Fuel economy of Universal 5432 4 cylinder diesel: .68 gallons per hour

Just a quick note for all those equally interested in fuel economy these days. I just filled my tank and was able to do a precise calculation of fuel economy based on over 60 hours of motoring time in all conditions. Turns out Aeolus burns .68 gallons per hour in her Universal 5432 (M40) diesel. My boat speed averages something around 6 knots all things considered. I'm very happy with this efficiency.
