Apparently typical bsfc is on plane 5000rpm at throttle valve fully open (volumetric efficiency) with a mpg prop... big prop that wont let the motor rev up. So currently I run 100% throttle, 5000 rpm (max hp is 5500... max rpm is 6000 rpm). And.... I get a whopping 9 mpg lol. 15' flat bottom 25 mph. 90s yamaha 2s 30hp.
