The parameters of a fuel-optimal mission from Kerbin via Eve to an outer planet with an arbitrary orbit radius were calculated. The $\Delta v$ gain of performing the Eve flyby instead a direct Hohmann transfer to the outer planet is on the order of 50 m/s. Eccentricity and inclination of planets' orbits were not considered.
