When it comes to aircraft, it's gallons per hour. Not sure about rockets, though.

With Bloodhound, I'm sure they'll just measure the weight. i.e. tons per run

Most aircraft are the same, aren't they? How many tons on take off, how many tons per hour of flight, how many extra tons to get that fuel off of the ground (nested loop).

I remember a mate of mine having a hand in British Airways software to calculate fuel per flight. Curb weight, passenger + luggage weight, fuel weight, error margin. Gets quite complicated and you really don't want to get it wrong.

"Slow speed" runs start today. Around 200-300 mph.

It should also be remembered that Bloodhound is about much more than just the land speed record, its about inspiring the next generation into engineering and technology in as exciting a way as possible. They have been into schools all over the UK and getting kids involved to explain how the car is built, the mathematics and electronics involved in the design and build stages.

Thanks for the up-date DD  thumbsup

I truly wish them the best of luck and hope they do eventually get to 1000mph.

However, as we move further into the 21st century I can't help but think this should be the last attempt using fossil fuels. Next we need to look at making an electric land speed record, with everything we learn from Bloodhound surely it can be done.

Best of luck chaps  sign-great-job

Good to see Bloodhound getting there. Been all over the news this time.

The speed nutters are way ahead of you, Data. Wiki.
Only 341MPH at the mo.
