    "Earl:

    You won't find a published one from Crusader - too many variables beyond their control.

    Next best thing would be a review of a (new) boat with that power plant. Many are on-line if you can spare the search time. You'll have to extrapolate to the hull you have. Even if you find the same make, expect differences due to load, water conditions, hull conditions, etc."

    My guess is at that speed, the economy should be pretty good, at least at the low end.

    There's always the flo-scan (or equivalent) route, too.

    good luck"
