Is the listed fuel flow when you look at an aircraft per engine or aircraft total?  I would expect aircraft total but it is listed under "engine information" so unsure.

 

e.g. 747-400 with RB211-524G fuel flow = 71,920.  But is the aircraft 71,920 or 4 x 71,920?

 

Also there are no units, is it mass burnt / distance (e.g. kg/km or lb/mile) or mass burnt / time (in which case you need to take account of speed to work out fuel burnt during a trip)?

It's not the whole plane you fool
You multiply the fuel flow by the amount of engines

Explain this then

2 Rolls-Royce Trent 768 67,500 10,550 40,500 125,910,000 1,399,000 5,627 mi (6,620 max) 549 7,302 4 CFM International (GE Snecma) CFM56-5C2 31,200 5,670 39,936 151,600,000 1,684,444 7,374 mi (8,675 max) 545 8,883

Are you saying that the A340 uses DOUBLE the fuel of an A330, i am sure that is impossible, and also A340 is popular in this game for its low fuel flow, not double fuel flow...

I always assumed it was for the aircraft itself. As for the unit, lb per hour.

The fuel flow listed is for the whole plane.

The A340 (especially the -200/300) has lower fuel flow in the game than it should, but that's a separate issue.

Well, if it wasn't possible, and it was per engine, then ANY 4-engined aircraft would be all but useless as EVERYONE would run for a twin-engine to literally HALVE fuel costs :/

I know that the A340 is OP right now, hope you dont nerf it.

I copied and pasted it from the game so...

I think it is whole aircraft, and fuel flow is pounds per hour.

I went through this discussion. Was just wondering whose the fool now? This comment was completely distasteful. I hope in these 6 years you have grown.
