Fuel consumption on Westerbeke 42b

Several members asked about expected fuel consumption on a C380.  The responses were pretty consistent:
It’s going to vary a bit depending on your prop set up and sea conditions.  My typical fuel consumption is better than on the chart Rich shared.  It is a matter of RPMs and the sweet spot for consumption versus boat speed for my boat is in the 2200-2500 RPM range.  I typically burn ~ .75 gallons per hour in that range and can make 6+knots.
