Around Vancouver Island: Distance, Hours, and Fuel Consumption

This trip was much shorter than the trip to Glacier Bay and back. Somehow I averaged both a higher speed (7.3 vs 6.7 knots) and better fuel economy (3.82 nm/gal vs. 3.71 nm/gal). I attribute this to carrying less weight this trip.

Total distance: 1,244.1 nm
Total engine hours: 170.3
Average speed: 7.3 knots
Total fuel burned: 325.4 gallons
Average fuel consumption: 1.91 gph (3.82 nm/gal)
Total fuel cost: $1,788.78 (assuming CAD and USD at par)
Average fuel cost: $5.50/gal
