        chuckabear in normal sea conditions you will be able to get the fuel economy that you are talking about. if i can remember the boat runs the most effecient at 26 knots and burns right around 28 gph fully loaded the thing that shocked me the most was the trolling gph of around 3.5 to 4 gph. the boat runs incredible so who care how much fuel yo burn.

          A friend of mine has a 32 with the motors you are talking about. At about 2550rpm fully loaded for offshore he cruises about 27-28kts. What he said about fuel economy was it averaged about 1nmpg over the whole day, cruising plus trolling. A run out about 75-80nm, plus trolling and genset running, burned about 200 gallons each trip last year. He has the electronic controls and had the factory install them where he wanted to accommodate his electronics placement. His AP26 control head is where you normally see the shift levers. He had Mac install the hydraulic motor for the autopilot at the factory and did the rest of the installation himself. I installed the AP16 on my boat myself, the motor is not hard to install, just a pain to bleed the system. If it is not too late you may consider getting your pump to the factory.
