The calculation for Thermal Efficiency (TE) is:
HP = TE x FUEL FLOW (PPH) x 19,000 (BTU per #) / 2542.4 (BTU per HP per Hour)
which reduces to:
HP = TE x FUEL FLOW (PPH) x 7.473
solving for THERMAL EFFICIENCY: TE = 0.1338 x HP / FUEL FLOW (PPH)
solving for FUEL FLOW: FUEL FLOW (PPH) = 0.1338 x HP / TE
If in gallons per hour, the Thermal Efficiency calculation is:
HP = TE x FUEL FLOW (GPH) x 5.92 (# per gallon) x 19,000 / 2542 (BTU per HP per Hour)
which reduces to:
HP = TE x FUEL FLOW (GPH) x 44.25
solving for THERMAL EFFICIENCY: TE = 0.0226 x HP / FUEL FLOW (GPH)
solving for FUEL FLOW: FUEL FLOW (GPH) = 0.0226 x HP / TE
Then >> FUEL FLOW = 0.1338 x 300 HP / 0.283 (28.3 %), or
FUEL FLOW = 142 PPH or 24 GPH.
YIKES > JIm's kit can feed ~230 hp !!!!!!!!!!!
Say What! OMG!
I'm not worthy > I'm not worthy >
Aggghhhhhh, Wooooooo >> 60 seconds of Garth expressing for me >>

You forgot 80% max duty cycle on the injecotrs- so 185 horse. Jim
