Gallons Per Hour Consumption Calculation
Fuel usage in automobiles refers to the fuel efficiency relationship between distance traveled by an automobile and the amount of fuel consumed. The miles per gallon gasoline equivalent is based on the energy content of gasoline. The energy obtainable from burning one US gallon is 115,000 BTU. Thus one mile per gallon gasoline equivalent is equal to 115,000 BTU per mile. For alternative fuels, energy required to manufacture the fuel may also be considered. For electrical power, the energy of any fuels used to generate the electricity and the transmission efficiency must be considered.
Aviation Gasoline weight per gallon (gw) =6.00
Jet A weight per gallon (dw) =6.84
Total Capacity (AvGas) Fuel Load Weight=(Fuel weight)* (gw)
GPH=start fuel-end fuel
