Enter the specific fuel consumption in g / hph (gram/h.p.h., grams per horsepower-hour):
Enter engine power in hp (horsepower):
Enter the density of the fuel in kg / m3 (diesel — 850 kg / m3, petrol — 710 kg / m3):
Fuel consumption liters per hour (l/h) is:
How to calculate fuel consumption in liters per hour, if the specific consumption in g / h.p.h is known?
You can calculate by the formula:
Q = N * q / R, where
Q — (in l / h) maximum theoretical fuel consumption in grams per 1 hour of engine operation at maximum power.
q — (in gram / hp) specific fuel consumption at power N.
N — (in hp) engine power
R — (kg / m3) fuel density
