B767-200 Fuel Consumption Question

Sun Nov 12, 2006 3:06 pm

I need general input on fuel consumption on a Boeing 767-200 or 200ER. Could anyone provide the average gallons per hour consumed? Thanks!!

The 767-200's and 300ER's at Delta burn 1 pound of fuel for every 31.0 pounds of weight at optimum altitude and .801 mach. Example; 300,000 pound cruise would equal 9,677 pph fuel flow with the above parameters.
If you're interested, the 400's stretch that to 32.8. The difference is attributed to the raked wingtips.

Note that numbers will vary significantly depending on load and atmospheric conditions. There is much more variation that in, say, a car.

Indeed. The 762ER can hold almost it's own weight in fuel. So as you can image fuel burn can vary significantly.

I find it funny when people ask how much X burns. Or whether Y is more efficient than Z.

I know it's not a question that can be answered with a straight number. Hence the reason why I am just looking for an "average".

Keep the input coming. It's helpful.

Thank you.

According to statistics a boeing 767-200 departing with max T.O weight will burn about six tons for first two hours & sure fuel consumption will decrease as weight decrease that can end up to four tons per hour.
