Take extra fuel. As much as possible. Although it depends on sea state and a multitude of other factors, I usually figure a range of about 700-800 miles to be conservative on a tank travelling at 2000-2001 rpm with the Volvo Penta diesel.

Can anyone comment on the adequacy of the 600ltr fuel tank for long range
sailing, say for transoceanic trips lasting 2-4 weeks?
