    The Pacer we used for our 0-360 A1P constant speed prop STC cruises at 140-145 at 2400 RPM and 24 inches of manifold pressure... burns about 9 GPH at that setting... has wheel pants and all the fairings.. Plane booster tips and VGs also...

    My Tri Pacer w/ stewart tips does 123 mph indicated at 9GPH on an 0-320 w/ 56" prop. Can time the fuel running out to within 5 seconds in the right tank....very consistent at that speed. RPMs vary a bit depending on my altitude, but if I aim for that speed between 1500-5500 ft I'll burn 9 - getting higher I can start to burn just a tad less fuel with a little extra true airspeed too.
