Until someone more qualified comes up with some figures here goes

B747 around 10, 000 kilos per hour
767 Around 5,000 kilos per hour
A320 2, 500 kilos per hour

I beleive there are around 3 kilos in a gallon, these aircraft will usuallly cover between 450 and 650 miles in an hour .

For more accurate information try the varius manifacturers websites

Quoting XXXX10 (Reply 1):
B747 around 10, 000 kilos per hour

744 is 17-18,000 Kgs in the first hour (TO, climb, cruise). Then at higher gross weights 12,000kgs/hour and then at lighter weights (250Tonnes) 10,000kgs/hour.
