Steve Werner of Mission Viejo, CA asks:

What is the total budget for the voyage? How much fuel has been spent and what has it cost?

Jim Leishman responds:

We didn't start out with an actual budget for the trip, but we had an idea of how much we'd spend. We estimated that we will use about 7,500 gallons of fuel and figure the cost per gallon will have averaged about $1.25 per gallon. The total fuel cost for the circumnavigation will be around $10,000.
