I have a new to me 1985 Freedom 32. What size is your diesel tank and how many miles to the gallon do you get? Thanks so much for all input.

I have a 1984 32 with a Yanmar 3GM30F engine, a 30 gallan diesel tank, I average about 1 gallon every 2 hours at about 2400 RPM. Mileage will vary of course dependent on many factors. With my prop and transmission that would equate to about 12 miles per gallon, your set up may be different though.

Thanks so much. I have 1985, 30 gal, Yanmar 3YM30 so pretty much the same. It was over heating and I found out they had a recall about 10yrs ago. They made the heat exchange too small. I missed the recall...the part was $800!
