Let me add something: I forgot to say 51 g/h was way enough for me, but it felt like it was maybe ok for you, so I'll let you keep your bill...

Figure 1/2 pound of fuel per horsepower; gets you close.
This works with any IC engine.

With the old rough calculations of the 70's we figured 110 gallons per hour racing.

Just wanted to ask a question about fuel.
I've got a 525 efi and it calls for 89 octane and that is what I use. My question is would there be any advantage to using a higher octane or would it just be a waist of money. Also - would a higher octane be harmful?

They were designed to run best on 89, I would stick with the 89.

Our sheets indicated we burn just over 80g/h per engine...
so just over 160g/h
The gas tanks are never big enough...
