I can't seem to figure out what rate of consumption this program uses and if this can be changed for each individual engine...

Other then that i'm loving this program, well everthing except the cost :o
I havn't finished entering all the equiptment yet but I think I'm going to have a heart attack when I see how much I've spent over the years...

The program uses the tank size for the aircraft the engine is installed in to calculate the fuel consumption. This way if you move the engine from one aircraft to another the consumption rates will dynamically change as they should.

For engines that are used before you started using Flight Log you may also enter the estimated hours and fuel consumption when you create the engine in the database.

The cost is VERY scary. Perhaps I should have an option to turn it off :). Actually, I guess you can as you can disable the cost column for any screen.
