    You spend a lot of time on the forum Ray, don't tell me you havent seen that posted here before?
    It was getting posted 5 times a day a couple of years back.
    I'd hate to pay the fuel bill for that one.

    I can't say I've seen that one at all... I saw another one on another forum, but it was completely different IIRC.

    What's the fuel bill like, by the way... checking the other one that I did see previously, they mentioned 1660 litres an hour!

    Ray,

    The Most Powerful Diesel Engine in the World!
    Todd Walke
    The Wartsila-Sulzer RTA96-C turbocharged two-stroke diesel engine is the most powerful and most efficient prime-mover in the world today. The Aioi Works of Japan's Diesel United, Ltd built the first engines and is where some of these pictures were taken.
    It is available in 6 through 14 cylinder versions, all are inline engines. These engines were designed primarily for very large container ships. Ship owners like a single engine/single propeller design and the new generation of larger container ships needed a bigger engine to propel them.

    The cylinder bore is just under 38" and the stroke is just over 98". Each cylinder displaces 111,143 cubic inches (1820 liters) and produces 7780 horsepower. Total displacement comes out to 1,556,002 cubic inches (25,480 liters) for the fourteen cylinder version.

    It might consume 1600 litres/hour but it also runs on very cheap unrefined diesel that looks like viscous tar!
    Take the long way home....

    that also stinks like nothing you have ever smelt, smokey as all hell and if you get it on your clother just throw them out. But in harbour i think it will still use f76.
